| TheMagicTouch (G.B.) Ltd brand our sublimation range under the name DyeSub Magic and offer printers, inks and consumables for the sublimation market. |
What is sublimation? Sublimation as a production technique is relatively simple. It's the chemical process which separates it from any other form of digital printing. When sublimation inks are heated, they turn into a gas and for a permanent bond to 100% polyester fabric or items that have a polymer coating. The ink molecules revert to a solid state upon cooling. The result is a premium full colour, photographic quality image that will not crack, peel or wash away from the substrate. Sublimation dyes are not opaque and therefore the printable items need to be white or a pastel colour. TheMagicTouch (G.B.) Ltd are authorised distributors of ArTainium®+ and SubliJet sublimation inks from Sawgrass Technologies, world leaders in this unique process. These include cartridges and pre-filled bulk ink options all supported with the relevant ICC Colour profiles for vivid colours.
Please note that the printing of 100% cotton and non-polyester coated items does not work with the sublimation transfer process. Please refer to TheMagicTouch toner-based image transfer process.
