The magic of Science


Sublimation printing is popular and it creates products with no image resolution loss. So what exactly is sublimation printing?
Sublimation printing involves imprinting a specified design or image or logo onto fabric, such as a garment, or other suitable items. It does so through a chemical process that turns a solid directly into a gas through a chemical reaction.
Typical methods of printing involve a middle step where the solid turns to water before turning gaseous. Instead, sublimation printing skips this middle step and fuses your design directly onto the fabric in a gaseous state where it solidifies as a lasting imprint of the product design you requested.
This is done through a machine that creates a chemical reaction through the transfer of heat. It is, however, limited to fusing designs onto synthetic materials, which includes polymers.
This is usually the most suitable option for businesses anyway. Once you have your image, you can get it printed on any number of objects in order to help you promote your company and increase your branding. For example, you could use sublimation printing to imprint on classic items for better branding, such as coffee mugs, pens, shirts and backpacks.
