Sublimation is a digital printing technology that enables the reproduction of colourful images on common everyday items, including personalized novelty items and photography panels. Dye-sublimation printing is quick and inexpensive in both setup and production, making it an ideal choice for creating personalized, one-of-a-kind items or for mass producing a variety of custom products. Dye-sublimation printing yields beautiful and permanent colours that are embedded in our specially formulated coating, rather than printed on the surface. ChromaLuxe substrates have an extremely durable scratch resistant surface that won’t warp or yellow with age.
Dye Sublimation Prints (or Metal Prints), are a new medium where dyes are directly transferred into the aluminum. The result is stunning with vibrant color and a unique dimensional quality. Sublimation is the process of a solid turning to gas and back to solid. We print with dyes onto unique transfer paper, then heat the paper and specially coated metal with high pressure and temperature in our custom press.
Dye sublimation prints are durable because the dyes are below the coated surface, resulting in a fade and scratch resistant piece. The aluminum (.0625 thickness) can stand alone, be backed with any of our substrates, braced or framed.
