Sublimation printing is probably the most versatile method available today of producing hard-wearing custom items. Because sublimation ink bonds to the substrate at a molecular level, sublimated mugs and plates are dishwasher-safe, sublimated tiles can be cleaned with bleach, and sublimated t-shirts can be washed and tumble-dried without affecting the image in any way.
Whether you're looking to expand your gift business, offer more variety to customers buying your artwork, or start a business selling personalised items, we are on hand to help you get set up with sublimation printing, and can advise on all aspects of the process.

Sublimation machines and cartridges. CE Approved heat press transfer machines
Sublimation machines use heat to transfer dye onto paper or a product such as mugs,
hats, t-shirts and plates. This type of printing means that the ink is permanent
and unlikely to fade or flake, though to achieve a high quality heat press transfer
you do need to use a superior sublimation machine.

machines and ink cartridges for years. As printer supply experts, we have been able

a case of you get what you pay for. Many businesses purchase cheaper products elsewhere,
but they are made with low grade materials and only offer a poor output and will
often break after only a few hundred heat press transfer attempts.
Our sublimation machines are different. We regularly search out new manufacturers
and raw materials from around the world so that we can test their products. Only
once we are satisfied that they are amongst the best available and can be sold for
a reasonable price will we offer them for sale. It’s quality control like this that
has given us the reputation we have today as a serious printing supply specialist.
