1. What can I sublimate onto?

Garments with a polyester or a polyester mix fabric or various blanks with a special polymer coating (such as our mugs and coasters).

2. What equipment is required for sublimation?

- Computer or tablet for designing 
 

3. Why can’t I sublimate on dark garments?

It isn't possible to sublimate on dark coloured garments because there is no white sublimation ink.

4. Why does the image on my screen differ to the final printed result?

It is entirely possible for a print from a sublimation printer to look different to the image on your computer screen. This is because sublimation inks often change colour during the heat pressing process. As the ink reacts when it is heated, it sometimes becomes brighter and more vibrant than the image printed on the sublimation paper. We would highly recommend that, during your testing stage, you heat press the image on to a product to see the final result before beginning a batch order.

5. Can I use an iron instead of a heat press?

No. You need a continuous, even heat and pressure to be applied simultaneously to the entire surface area. This can only be effectively achieved using a heat press.
