What is dye sublimation printing?
The dye sublimation printing process is used to create Metal Prints, Metal Ornaments, Metal Keychains, Mugs, Dog Tags, Coasters, and Luggage Tags. These products are printed on the Epson 9890 with Saw Grass Sublimation inks.
The sublimation process involves printing on Johnson Plastics sublimation paper. The printed paper is then taped to the Metal substrate and heat pressed at 400 degrees. The dye from the paper is heated into a gas, which then penetrates the enamel substrate. The printed image can not be wiped off the metal substrate.
