What is sublimation printing?

sublimation printing on fabric

SUBLIMATION PRINTING is a printing method for transferring images from sublimation paper onto a piece of fabric or material by using pressure and heat.

Sublimation printing normally involves the use of a digital printer to produce mirrored images on paper that has been specially coated with a transfer material.

The transfer paper typically is placed into a heat press with the substrate and is exposed to temperatures between 200 – 230 degrees. This allows the ink and transfer material to move into the gas state.

Once the ink and transfer material are in a gas state, they permeate the fibres of the substrate material. When the heat is removed from the transfer paper and substrate, the ink that has permeated the substrate fibres solidifies and is locked permanently into place by the transfer material.

Assuming the procedure has been performed correctly, the image should never be subject to deterioration beyond that of the substrate itself.
