Thermal Dye Sublimation

Thermal dye sublimation is a printing process that uses heat to transfer dye onto materials such as paper, plastic, or fabric. The heat causes the dye to vaporize and bond with the material, resulting in vibrant, long-lasting colors and sharp details. This method is favored for its ability to produce professional-grade prints with exceptional color accuracy and durability, making it a popular choice in the printing industry for various applications.
