Sublimation

What is Sublimation?

Sublimation is defined as “the transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas phase without passing through the intermediate liquid phase.” Sublimation is an endothermic (absorption of heat) transition that occurs at temperatures and pressures below a substance’s triple point in its phase diagram. In common language, sublimation printing is a type of heat transfer printing that requires special ink (gel), special transfer paper, and special heat press.

Sublimation is an excellent choice for highly-detailed, multi-color designs. The ink won’t peel like screen-printed ink, too. The technique is not, however, large-volume friendly.
