Sublimation Print is used for branding products that have a special coating on them or fabrics suitable for the sublimation process. A transfer is produced by printing sublimation ink onto transfer paper and then heat pressing it onto the product.

Only one set up charge is required irrespective of the number of print colours.
The branding can bleed off some products.

When printing large images some minor imperfections may appear in the print or around
the edges of it. These are unavoidable.
