In addition to sublimation paper, We also carry a large selection of sublimatable blank items such as: Mugs, Mouse Pads, Tiles & More!
Sublimation, as a process is really very simple. It is the method of applying a dye printed image to a specially coated surface like ceramics, metals and polyester cloth, using three main ingredients: sublimation ink, transfer paper, heat and pressure.
Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time. Hard items such as ceramic mugs, tiles, fiber board, metals, etc. requires a special coating to accept the sublimation inks. You must purchase these materials like mugs, tiles, metals, etc. with the coating already on them, it is not something you can coat yourself. We carry a full line of transfer paper, blank sublimation mugs, blank sublimation mouse pads and blank sublimation plates. When you apply to our mouse pads you do not need any coating, it is applied directly to the fabric.
