Sublimation is a process used to put designs on light colored polyester clothing and other cloth substrates, and on hard goods that are specially coated for this process. Such goods include glass, plastic, ceramics, and hardboard.
Popular items on which you can put sublimated designs are:
- t-shirts and sweatshirts
- coffee cups
- cutting boards
- quilt squares
- ceramic tiles, and more
You can even do murals or floor designs with multiple tiles.
Sublimation is especially good for putting photographic and other full-color images on these substrates.
If you want a color design on hard surface, or a light-colored polyester, then sublimation may be the right process for your project.
