Sublimation Printer

Use the sublimation printer to print reversed designs of up to 8.5”x11” on sublimation paper, then use our heat press to transfer those designs to keychains, t-shirts, phone cases, and more!

What You Need

Sublimation printing works best with fabrics that are at least 40% polyester or other manmade materials. Specially prepared “sublimation blanks” for items such as keychains, phone cases, mousepads, and more can also be purchased at many online retailers. 

Sublimation paper can be purchased from the Info desk for $.25 per page.
