Sublimation Printing – What is it?

Sublimation or heat transfer printing is the application of sublimation inks onto a surface using a heatpromotional printed umbrella press to provide the required combination of heat, time and pressure. Furthermore, this combination converts ink from a solid to a gaseous state. Thus enabling them to penetrate the sublimatable surface so that a permanent, full colour image forms The colour penetrates the surface of the item so that the result is colourful, long lasting and resistant to scratching. Unlike some other printing methods, that merely print onto the surface of the item.

Dye sublimation printing is always done on a polyester, polymer / polymer coated items. At high temperatures, the solid dye also converts into a gas without ever becoming a liquid. The same high temperature opens the pores of the polymer and allows the gas to enter. When the temperature drops, the pores close and the gas reverts to a solid state. It has now become a part of the polymer. For this reason, true dye sublimation cannot happen on natural materials such as 100% cotton. Natural fibres and non-coated materials have no “pores” to open.

Screen/Silk Printing

This is then pressed through a stencilled screen and treated with a light-sensitive emulsion. Film positives put in contact with the screens and exposed to light. This hardens the emulsion not covered by film and leaves a soft area on the screen. This allows the squeegee to press ink through. Also, you must create a different screen for every colour you are going to print. Then, screen each colour separately allowing drying time in-between.

4-colour process

A system where a colour images separated into 4 different colour values. Done by the use of filters and screens (usually done digitally). The result is a colour separation of 4 images, that when transferred to printing plates, printed on a printing press with the coloured inks. The inks; cyan (blue), magenta (red), yellow and black, reproduces the original colour image. Combine these four colours to create thousands of colours, just as your computer printer does.
