What is sublimation print

Sublimation print is used for branding products that have a special coating on them or fabrics suitable for the sublimation process. A transfer is produced by printing sublimation ink onto transfer paper and then heat pressing it onto the product.

Advantages
  • Sublimation ink is actually a dye so there is no ink build-up on the finished print and it looks like part of the product.
  • Ideal for producing vivid full colour images as well as spot colour branding.
  • Can print variable data including individual names.
  • Only one set up charge is required irrespective of the number of print colours.
  • The branding can bleed off some products.
Limitations
  • Only approximate PMS colours can be reproduced.
  • Some colours cannot be reproduced including metallic silver and gold.
  • When printing large images some minor imperfections may appear in the print or around the edges of it. These are unavoidable.
Artwork Requirements - Artwork should be supplied in vector or bitmap format.
