If you have never heard of sublimation ink or sublimation paper, you may be wondering exactly what it is. A sublimation printer uses this type of ink in it and the printer uses a specific type of printing style that utilizes heat to place the ink onto your paper. The dye can be placed onto all types of materials including paper, card stock, fabric, plastics, and so much more.
The best part about the whole heat transfer of dye is that the ink dries quickly so you do not have to worry about ink smears and smudges. The name sublimation was originally used to describe this process because during the ink transformation to the paper, the ink is not in a liquid state.
Sublimation ink is constructed of dye particles that take on the form of a powder and they are not liquid. This is much different than traditional ink as it is in a liquid state.
Does Specific Paper Need to Be Used?
Yes. You cannot just use any type of paper for the process to work and you must rely on paper that has a special surface to absorb the dye and allow it to adhere.
What We Offer You
If you are interested in sublimation printers and ink, we recommend that you call our office to discuss the process with us and to see if this type of dye is the best for your business. For our process, we use a 78 gsm sublimation paper that allows for instant drying as soon as the printer completes the process. The high-speed printer, which is an MS printer, makes the printing process extremely fast and we have the ability to print 55 square meters in a matter of one hour.
If sublimation ink, printers, and papers are not involved, this process would not be possible and we could not print the materials you need that quick. One of the biggest benefits of using this type of process is that you are able to get larger jobs done much quicker which means more profitability for your company.
