Dye sublimation is a method of applying an image to specially coated ceramics, metals and polyester fabric using three main elements: sublimation ink, heat and pressure.
Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time. Hard items such as ceramic, fiberboard, metals, etc. require a special coating to accept the sublimation inks. The mugs, tiles, metals, etc. already comes with this coating. We carry a full line of these sublimatable blanks.
The heat transfer papers for sublimation printing do not have a coating on them. This paper has a unique finish on the surface so the inks do not soak into the paper. After you print the transfer paper, it is then placed on the product to be applied with a heat press.
The result of the sublimation process is a nearly permanent, high-resolution, full-color print. Because the dyes are infused into the substrate at the molecular level, rather than applied at a topical level the prints will not crack, fade or peel from the substrate under normal conditions.
Dye-sublimation printing works with polyester and polymer-coated substrates. However, hard items including ceramics and metals require a special coating to accept the sublimation inks. On the other hand, you do not need any coating on 100% polyester items such as mouse mats and 100% polyester fabric.
When it comes to custom promotional products and any other printing service, there are lots of options available for all businesses marketing needs. Make sure you get superior quality products.
