Commercial dye sublimation can be traced back to 1929 – 1930. Dye sublimation is a process of applying an image to specially coated ceramics, metals and cloth using three main ingredients, ink, heat and pressure. Sublimation is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form.
Dye sublimation allows for the creation of true color products in many areas, such as apparel, tiles, coasters, photo frames, and many promotional items. If you can imagine it, dye sublimation may be the answer.
