What is Sublimation Printing?
Dye-sublimation printing is a computer printing
technique which uses heat to transfer dye onto materials such as a plastic,
card, paper, or fabric. The sublimation name was first applied because the dye
was considered to make the transition between the solid and gas states without
going through a liquid stage. Wikipedia
Heat transfer vinyl, or HTV for short, is a
specialty vinyl polymer that can be used on certain fabrics and
materials to create designs and promotional products. It comes in a roll or
sheet form with an adhesive backing so it can be cut, weeded, and
placed on a substrate for heat application. Heat transfer
vinyl is made in single colors and also has special options such as patterned,
glitter, flocked, holographic,
glow-in-the-dark, reflective and 3Dpuff.
