Sublimation Printing

Sublimation printing uses sublimation ink, printed via an ink jet printer onto sublimation paper, which is then applied under heat and pressure to a suitable blank object.

Tools

  • Epson Printer - Refurbished with sublimation ink
  • Equipment for refilling the cartridges
  • Mug Press
  • Plate Press
  • T-shirt Press

Note - Currently you will need your art work on your own laptop, and connect it to the Epson printer. Going forward we hope to have a dedicated laptop with templates to assist in aligning artwork with the blank.

Consumables

  • Sublimation ink - for refilling printer cartridges
  • Sublimation Paper
