Sublimation

Print your design onto sublimation paper, then use heat to transfer it to a t-shirt, mug, or other specially-prepared object.

A few of the things you can make:

  • Event t-shirts

Equipment Details

What we’ve got:

What you’ll need:

  • Mousepads, 15-ounce ceramic mugs, and metal bag tags are available in Spark Place. (See price list.)
  • To transfer your design to a shirt, bring in a 100% polyester or a polyester-blend item. The more polyester in the fabric, the more vivid your image will be in the finished project. Your shirt must be a lighter color than the design you plan to transfer.
  • You may bring in your own sublimation blanks—items specially produced for the sublimation process—to use with our heat presses.
  • Spark Place’s sublimation paper and ink must be used for all projects. (See price list.)
