Dye sublimation is this cool process where an image is printed onto Heat Transfer Paper then applied to a specially coated ceramic, metal or polyester fabric via heat transfer. Sublimation ink has this unique ability to convert from a solid to a gas using a heat press which is controlled by time and pressure. The high temperature from a heat transfer press opens the pores of the polymer and allows the gas to enter the substrate. When the temperature cools, the pores close and the gas reverts to a solid state leavng the impression that was first printed onto the Heat Transfer Paper.
We stock a great range of sublimation imprintables and polyester shirts if you fancy this method.
