Sublimation printing is the application of sublimation inks onto a surface using a heat press to provide the required combination of heat, time and pressure. This combination causes the inks to be converted from a solid to a gaseous state enabling them to penetrate the sublimatable surface so that a permanent, full colour image is formed. The colour penetrates the surface of the item so that the result is colourful, long lasting and resistant to scratching unlike some other printing methods that merely print onto the surface of the item.
We can print Soft items including polyester fabric, t-shirts, polo shirts, bags, lunch box, wallet, car sun screens! A sublimation print on a suitable polyester fabric is permanent, feels like part of the fabric with no 'hand' and will not crack, peel or fade. Hard items including specially coated rock photo slates, jigsaw, mugs, plate , phone and ipad covers, signs, place mats, coasters, tiles and even glass.
