What is this sublimation term .. what does it mean? 

What is the 'official' explanation:

Dye sublimation print is used for branding products that have a special coating on them or fabrics suitable for this method of decoration.  A transfer is produced by printing sublimation ink onto transfer paper and then heat pressing it onto the product. 



- Sublimation ink is a dye so there is no ink build-up. The finished print is embedded in the product.

- Ideal for producing vivid full colour images as well as closely matched spot colour branding.

- Variable data can be printed e.g. individual names

- Edge to edge branding can be achieved on some products

- Only one setup charge is required, regardless of the number of print colours


- Can only be used on suitable products with white surfaces

- Some colours cannot be reproduced including white, metallic and neon/fluorescent colours

- Fine detail or text may experience minor colour bleed across adjacent design elements
