What is Sublimation and How do I Begin?

What is Sublimation?

In simple terms, it’s a method of printing that transfers a printed design into a material or fabric using ink and heat.

What is the minimum equipment I will need to start a sublimation business?

If you are just starting out in sublimation the main equipment you will need is a good flat heat press, a sublimation printer, and a computer for designing.

Smaller items you must have are often bundled with your printer or heat press or kit. They include:

  • heat transfer tape
  • sublimation paper
  • ink
  • standard A4 paper
  • Teflon sheets
  • various blanks
