What is Dye-Sublimation?
Dye sublimation is highly specialized and the results are simply incredible.
Sublimation or heat transfer 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 material so that a permanent, full-color image is formed.
The color penetrates the surface of the item so that the result is colorful, long lasting and resistant to scratching unlike some other printing methods that merely print onto the surface of the item.
