Why Choose Sublimation?


In a world of unlimited printing processes, how do you decide which method to proceed with for your business.

Here at DV Blanks we have an extended knowledge of a variety of printing processes and the pro’s and con’s that go along with them. What we have discovered over the years is that you cannot beat sublimation printing for print quality, range of images and variety of substrates available. It is a process that is second to none with being able to make custom art work in small quantities whilst keeping the price to the customer affordable.

So what exactly is sublimation?

A quick online search tells us the following;

“Sublimation is the transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas state, without passing through the liquid state.”

Sounds simple right?! Well, it’s a lot more simple than it seems and the possibilities for customised products are endless.

In more simple terms what happens when you sublimate an item is that the sublimation ink on the printed paper heats into a gas and transfers over to the product in around 50 seconds of high temperature heat pressing, and voilà! You have a photo quality print on another item ready to impress your customers.

How do I get started?

To start a sublimation business you need relatively few items;

  • Sublimation ready printer.
  • Sublimation paper.
  • Sublimation product.
  • Heat press.

Once you have these basics, you are ready to take your first step into sublimation printing.
