Outsourcing: Sublimation Printing

View All Blog Articles


When running a product decoration business, you are likely to receive requests for all kinds of custom products, like mugs, keychains, and coasters.  These products can often be printed using a heat press and sublimation transfers. Sublimation printing is growing in popularity throughout the product decoration industry.  Sublimation printing offers the ability to decorate a wide variety of fun and unique hard good products in full color, with no minimums. That is something that no other custom decoration process can match.


While sublimation printers use transfers and a heat press, it is a more complicated process than pressing screen print transfers onto apparel.  To sublimation print a product, a design must be printed onto special paper with a sublimation printer. The design is then heat-pressed onto a product (often with a special heat press), leaving behind a beautiful full-color, photo quality print.  Mugs, keychains, coasters, puzzles, bag tags, and many more products can all be sublimation printed as long as they have a flat, white polymer-coated surface. White polyester garments can also be printed via sublimation, though that is less common than gift products.
