RESOURCES - Sublimation
Sublimation is a process of transferring a printed design onto sublimation-ready materials. It can only be applied to polyester white garments, and sub-ready coated products.
A special printer is required. Some people have converted home printers for sublimation, but it isn't flawless as the ink is a different density than regular inkjet ink.
Sublimation paper is printed on with the sublimation printer and then a heat press is used to transfer the design.
A few products that also work with sublimation designs:
- Sublimation paper - use this paper to print the designs on to
- Siser EasySubli - use this product to sub onto and then apply to cotton or dark garments
- Siser Heat Tape - use this tape to help keep your designs in place!
- Other products that may work with sublimation transfers (recommend choosing the white colour):
- Siser Holographic
- Siser Sparkle
- Siser EasyWeed Glow
- Siser EasyPSV
Cricut calls their sublimation products "infusible ink".
Here are some sublimation and sublimation-compatible products. It is recommended to use the near white colours in products with sublimation (ie. using the white glitter).
