We use a unique process to create your personalize gift. The process incorporates special inks, papers, products, substrates, heat press, and computer programs. During the creation of your gift, the ink changes from a solid to a gas. Permanently creating the image on the gift. The process is called Dye Sublimation Printing.
What is Dye Sublimation Printing?
Sublimation is the change of state of a substance from a solid to a gas without first becoming liquid. An example is the vaporization of carbon dioxide (dry ice) at ordinary atmospheric pressure and temperature. Unlike conventional inks, sublimation inks are converted directly from a solid to a gas under heat and pressure, causing them to bond with the material. The molecules of ink revert to a solid state upon cooling, transferring the image (with no lost of quality) into the surface of the product. The image becomes part of the product.
