With a sublimation ink set, some transfer paper, and some sublimation blanks or polyester-based fabrics, you can make just about any kind of custom item you can think of! Custom coffee mugs, mousepads, license plates, cell phone cases, baseball caps, polyester sportswear are just some of the items you can produce for individual and corporate customers. With InkOwl products, getting into dye-sub is very affordable, which can give your shop a major competitive advantage in sublimation printing!
These are the items you'll need to get started:
Print out a mirrored version of the design you want to sublimate and place the printed side onto your substrate (sublimation blank). Next, place that blank into the appropriate heat press and follow the heating directions that came with the blank. Once the piece is ready, peel off the transfer paper and let it cool. You just made a custom item!
In general, to get into sublimation, you are expected to buy an expensive sublimation printer, and then expected to buy often highly overpriced sublimation ink. At InkOwl, we believe in providing alternatives that put the client first!
We can provide the products and expertise necessary to convert an ordinary, off-the-shelf EPSON printer (wide format or desktop) into a dedicated dye-sub machine that can be refilled with our InkOwl Performance-Ultra Sublimation Ink (wide format) or InkOwl Performance-D Sublimation Ink (desktop).
We also provide lower-cost sublimation inks for existing users of EPSON F170 and F570 printers with our InkOwl Performance-E Sublimation Products, or for RICOH and VIRTUOSO native dye-sub printers with our InkOwl Performance-R Sublimation Products.
Finally, we also supply an affordable yet high-quality sublimation transfer paper, optimized for our inks for transfers onto both hard and soft surfaces.
