Sublimation Transfers - We Print Your Artwork and Images
** This listing is for printing services on to Dye Sublimation paper. We take the high quality artwork that you send us and print it on dye sublimation paper and ship it to you.
** Dye Sublimation will not work on Cotton garments unless it has at least 65% polyester blended with it.
** There is no White Ink with Dye Sublimation so attempting to sublimate on anything black will not work.
** We discourage the use of a home iron to apply dye sublimation. Home irons typically do not get hot enough. Dye sublimation is best applied using a heat press machine where you can adjust time, temperature, and pressure.
** Dye Sublimation is applied between 390-400 degrees for between 45-60 seconds at medium pressure. Place a sheet of butcher paper under AND on top of the garment and dye sublimation transfer to prevent scorching of the garment. Don't assume that all polyester garments can handle the heat. Some garments will scorch at 400 degrees and you might need to lower the temperature or shorten the sublimation time or both. Practice makes perfect.
** THE PAGE SIZES OFFERED IN THIS LISTING ARE NOT THE ACTUAL PRINT SIZES OF THE ARTWORK. THERE IS A ONE QUARTER (1/4) INCH NO PRINT ZONE AROUND ALL SIZES OF THE PAPER.
THE MAXIMUM PRINT SIZES ARE:
Paper Size: 8.5x11 | Image Size: 8x10.5
Paper Size: 8.5x14 | Image Size: 8x13.5
Paper Size: 11x17 | Image Size: 10.5x16.5
** Please message us if you have any questions. We are always happy to help!

Sawgrass is known in the industry as one of the highest rated sublimation platforms for professional printers.

3 - Sit back and wait for Premium Prints to arrive in just a few days.
*** PREPARATION IS KEY! ***
Quality doesn't just happen. Proper planning and technique play a large part.
High Resolution artwork is a MUST as it will always produce better quality. Low resolution images might look "OK" on your computer or phone screen, but keep in mind that your display is nowhere near the resolution of a printed piece of paper. You're not going to get a good print if you take a screen shot of something and attempt to print it.
There is no "White" ink with Dye Sublimation. What you see as White on your artwork will actually be "clear", with the garment color coming through.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SUBLIMATE ON ANYTHING BLACK.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SUBLIMATE ON PURE COTTON. USE 65% POLYESTER OR HIGHER.
