The Advantages and Disadvantages of Sublimation Printing

A lot of people do not know what sublimation printing is and how it can help them. It is a great way to get high-quality prints that will last for many years, all without having to invest in expensive equipment. In this blog post, we will explore the advantages and disadvantages of sublimation printing so you can decide if it's right for your business!

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Sublimation Printing

What are some other advantages? The process helps reduce waste by using less ink during production, as well as water when cleaning up afterwards since no ink or paint comes into contact with fabric at any point along the way.

What are some disadvantages? The process is only suitable for certain types of ink so it can be difficult to find a supplier that offers the right type and color(s) you need, especially if you're handling larger orders or working with an unusual design. It can also take longer to produce sublimated designs since there's no set matrix like screen printing uses; each transfer requires its own setup before production begins (although this does save time in the long run).

How else do people use sublimation printing? There may be more than one correct answer. Sublimation might not immediately come to mind when thinking about how others could benefit from using this process but it has many other potential applications. Some of these include printing on mugs, plates, and other kitchenware, as well as fabrics for making clothing or bedding. It can even be used to print logos and designs on surfaces like glass, paper, or metal that other printing methods would not work as well with.

These are just a few of the many advantages and disadvantages of sublimation printing!
