In simplest terms, dye-sublimation (dye-sub for short) means that we take an original image and through a process of heating and transferring, we can actually apply that image to another surface—be it ceramic, or plastic, or fabric. What makes dye-sub unique is that unlike silk-screening, the inks actually become a part of the surface.
How it works
1. You send us a photo or piece of flat art, and we digitize it on the computer.
2. We’ll design the layout and add any personalized touches. You’ll receive a proof for approval.
3. We print it out on special paper using dye-sub inks. Then with a heat press the finish from the item lifts up and your artwork is transferred to actually become a part of the finish.
