Your Sublimation Printing Experts

Sublimation printing often known as dye sublimation printing or digital sublimation is the digital printing process in which colourful artwork is printed onto a sheet of high-release paper at first and then later transferred onto other items with the use of heat and pressure.

Sublimation printing refers to the process of printing onto a special sheet of paper and then transferring that image or text onto another material.

Sublimation printing used heat to ring to combine ink and fabric or material. A design is printed onto the paper and then transferred onto the fabric. This leaves a permanent effect that is far less prone to fading over time. It doesn’t crack, peel, fade or wash out.

Sublimation printing is commonly used for clothing such as t-shirt prints, hoodies and socks. Generally, this method of printing doesn’t work for silk, or most natural fabrics. Although this can be used for othert materials such as mugs, pens clocks, ornaments, tins and many more items.
