Dye Sublimation, as a process is really very simple. It is the method of applying an image to polyester fabric and specially coated ceramics, wood and metals, using three main ingredients: sublimation ink, heat and pressure.
Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas. The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time. Hard items such as ceramic, fiber board, metals, etc. require a special coating to accept the sublimation inks. You must purchase the mugs, tiles, metals, etc. with the coating already on them, it is not something you can coat yourself. We carry a full line of these products.
We offer placement sublimation on ready made garments as well as sublimated custom print, cut, and sew apparel items.
