Frequently Asked Questions

What is Dye Sublimation Printing?

Dye Sublimation printing is the method we use to infuse our image or yours into specially coated products to create your unique photo gift. Using the right combination of  sublimation ink, heat and pressure the image has a quality you have to see to believe. Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. (Just like dry ice.) The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time. For more information about the process view our video
