got any pics of what these things are?

 

i wouldn't mind having a look as we're going into sublimation.....

 

cheers, rick.

 

give novachrome a call and ask them to send you out a catalouge and price list all the pics are in their.Remember their is to types of sublimination the type i use is a epson r265 printer with a cis system filled with sublimination dye. just print your full coulour image in reverse ie mirror image then place paper on the special coated many items available then press for the desired time. the best method for the most popular line mugs as the dye soaks into the coating on the mug and the end result is verry glossy print that you cant feel ie soaked into the mug.the downside with this is you can only press onto a item coated for sub printing.

 

or you could use different sub paper available fromm novachrome and print your image in reverse with a standard high end okia lazer printer with the standard toner then you can press straight onto any item and it lays the image over the top even porus items like wood. this is the only way you can print vivid colours onto any tshirt that is not white or dark .forgot to say that with the dye you dont need special coated tshirts but they do nood to be poly not cotton cotton is to absorbant.

 

dye is a cheaper set up unless you already have a oki lazer printer for printing veichle no. plates you could use your current printer. or you could cheat and start doing numberplates open an account with hills and get one of their oki printers in your shop for about a fiver a week. if you havent bought a press yet dont buy cheap chinese ones they dont heat acuretaly in my experience i use mug press and flat press by geo night expensive but good never let me down yet.
