Muglamania Photo Mugs and Personalised gifts How We Print

Sublimation printing is a process whereby full colour images, text and other graphics can be transferred into a receptive item. The process relies on a specialised ‘dye sublimation’ ink, which when heated changes from being a solid dye to being a gas, without passing through a liquid stage. Taking this a step further, if this gas encounters polymer fibres as it moves, it will penetrate those fibres, permanently dyeing them.

The products we supply are all polymer coated (or otherwise produced from polymer based materials), and therefore sublimation ready. This range includes items such as ceramic mugs, mousemats, acrylic photo blocks, trophies, awards and much more besides.

The procedure for producing an item is quite simple. Firstly, artwork is designed on a standard PC, using a graphics package like Photoshop Elements or CorelDraw.

Sublimation printing is a procedure for transferring full colour graphics or photographs onto a wide selection of products. These include metal, ceramics UniSub plastics and products and glass items all specially pre-coated and therefore, sublimation receptive. Polyester mousemats and jigsaws plus T-shirts with a polyester content can also be decorated. We regularly research and add new printable products to our range so the scope continually increases
