Description

Sublimation Mugs – Sub-li-what-now?!” If you’ve ever wondered what this strange-looking word actually means — then wonder no more.

No, it isn’t an underwater warship or on-screen translations that help you understand a foreign film; it’s a high-tech printing process used mostly for print-on-demand apparel.

Let’s start with the broad strokes.

What exactly is sublimation?

In simple terms, it’s a method of printing that transfers a design into a material or fabric using ink and heat.

In the world of apparel, it’s a game changer in that it allows whole garment prints — designs that go seam-to-seam.

The first step of the dye-sublimation process is the selection of quality blanks.

A blank references the mug or other dye-sublimation product that doesn’t have an image applied to it yet.

Meaning… It’s blank! All dye-sublimation blanks must be treated to receive dye.

Mugs and cups are coated with a polymer making them dye receptive.

Why a white mug? Dye-sublimation printing doesn’t use white ink to print.

The dyes are transparent and rely on the surface of the printed mug or substrate for brightness.

The blank mug and imaged transfer paper are placed in a heat press.

As you can gather from the name, heat and pressure are applied to transfer the image from the transfer paper to the surface of the blank.

The process infuses the printed dye into the polymer coating of the blank.

The image actually becomes part of the mug creating a very durable and long-lasting image.

There are different types of heat presses for a range of products.

The press needs to conform to the surface of the blank for proper sublimation.

This is a 36 Pack of 110z Sublimation mugs that are used to heat press images onto.

Works best with sublimation paper and sublimation ink
