Sublimation

 

Full Color Printing with No Feel and No Set-up

Sublimation is the perfect solution for printing your full color shirts with vivid detail.  We can also print your coffee mugs, baby gifts, water bottles, patches, tote bags, pet gifts, and more with NO minimums!

Dye sublimation is a great custom printing option if you are looking for a single personalized item for yourself or as a gift. This process is great for printing full color photos onto t shirts, sweatshirts and tote bags, because the item you select is dyed with the custom print of your choice, so there is absolutely no feel or heaviness to the garment, or feel to any other item.

Branded offers water bottles– stainless steel or white, they are perfect for your logo and to gain exposure for your company. Drinkware, like our full color ceramic mugs make memorable gifts. These mugs will show you care in a big way. They make great giveaways at conventions, seminars or trade shows, featured with a companies name, logo or picture, a smart way to be remembered.

Our stylish Latte Cups hold 11oz of the fabulous mixture of steamed milk and espresso. These sublimated mugs make an excellent statement for local coffeehouses. We also have large beer steins, that will make your drinkware stand out from the rest!

Branded offers a number of pet gifts, including leashes, bowls, collars, id tags and more. Matching personalized collars and leashes are a great way to express your dog’s personality! We can not only imprint a name and phone number for the safety of your dog, but also imprint a full color designs that will get everyone’s attention.

License plate frames and inserts show your school spirit…boost your favorite team…or advertise your company. Each come with pre-drilled holes for easy merchandising. Whether it’s patriotic, athletic, religious, or personal- our sublimated license plates can be customized with any graphic.

They are a durable and beautiful way to keep baby neat.

    

Sublimation.

What is it? Sublimation is the change from a solid state, directly to a gaseous state. The liquid state is bypassed.

How does it work? It’s the magic of chemistry, but like all magic, it is incredibly useful. Sublimation can be used to print on products that are otherwise very difficult. The process goes like this. Artwork is created in any graphics program. That artwork is them printed backwards onto a magical paper using magic ink. That is then taped or glued to whatever product is to be printed. The product then has heat and pressure applied to it. The paper is removed and the product now has a vibrant image on it that will not come off or fade with time. Whether you know it or not, you are already familiar with many products that have been produced with sublimation. Have you ever seen a motocross or BMX jersey with full color printing? Those colorful images on the bottoms of your skis or snowboards? Those phone cases that have images printed on them? That mug you gave your Grandma with your face on it? All sublimation.

Does Branded do sublimation printing? We do! We are one of the few shops in the area that offer sublimation. We are constantly adding more products and expanding our abilities in this flourishing field of printing. We’ve produced jerseys for softball tournaments, mugs for corporations, steins for gifts, lanyards for schools, shot glasses for partying, koozies for those hot summer days, trucker hats, regular shirts, clocks, signs, table throws, license plate frames, and many more items.

What products can sublimation be applied to? There are too many to list, but here are just a few. Apparel: T-shirts, hoodies, hats, socks, aprons, Sandles, etc. Children’s gifts: Baby bibs, bookmarks, coin banks, puzzles, teddy bear clothes, etc. Drinkwear: Coffee mugs, beer steins, shot glasses, flasks, late mugs, water bottles, etc. Home Decor: Clocks, coasters, pillow cases, light switch covers, etc. Covers: Iphone covers, Galaxy covers, Ipad covers, Tablet covers, laptop sleeves, etc. Keepsake gifts: Wine boxes, Beverage insulators(coozies) Jewelry, Hair Barrettes, Flip top lighters, Ornaments, Dog tags, etc. Pet products: Collars, Leashes, Dog bandanas, Pet bowels, Pet tags, etc. The list goes on and on.

Can any item be sublimated? There are a lot of items that can be sublimated, but not everything. Sublimation works on polyester items, or items that have been treated with a polyester coating. Sublimation items also have to be white or very light in color. Since sublimation ink is actually a dye, it doesn’t show up when printed onto an item that is darker than the image being printed. The motocross jerseys that you see with printing all over them started out as white pieces of fabric. The individual pieces are sublimated, then sewn together into a shirt.

Sublimation is a great means for producing custom gifts for your friends and family. It’s also great for team uniforms, corporate items, or just something fun for yourself. Give Branded a call at 775-453-1921, or send us an email toinfo@brandedscreenprinting.com and we will be happy to help you.
