What is Sublimation?
To fully understand how dye sublimation ink works, we must first define sublimation. Sublimation is, scientifically speaking, the transition of a substance from a solid directly to a gas without going through a liquid phase, which must occur under very specific temperature and pressure conditions.
How does this apply to ink?
Simply put, dye sublimation ink is an ink specially designed to undergo the sublimation process. The chemical makeup of the ink is designed to work with the heat and pressure that the inks encounter in a heat press, so that the ink will go straight from a solid to a gas without entering the liquid phase.
