Sublimation Ink Pens / Markers
Don’t have a Sublimation Printer? That’s okay! You can try sublimation with these pens – draw onto sublimation paper (avoid using words & numbers unless you are good at writing/drawing in mirror mode!) then turn over & press onto light coloured polyester material, or any sublimation blank.
IDEA: Let the kids draw a picture, then press it onto a mug as a very special gift!
**Do not press onto cotton fabric – your image will wash out on the first wash! You must use polyester material/polyester coated items for the sublimation ink to ‘stick’!**
Sublimation ink itself is permanent, however image life will depend on the item it is transferred to – for example, an image transferred onto a high quality sublimation mug will last 3500+ cycles, but a poorer quality mug coating may last less than 500.
Sublimation ink is not UV stable and therefore not appropriate to use for outdoor signage, or any items that will be exposed for prolonged periods to our harsh Australian summer sun.
