Getting started sublimating on your own is quite easy! All you need is a computer, a printer with sublimation inks, transfer paper, a heat press and the HD metal sheet. In the HD metal sublimation industry, an image is printed onto transfer paper using dye-based inks and then transferred onto a coated hard surface with heat and pressure.
Choose any pictures, illustrator or other graphic image. Insert the sublimation ink cartridges into your printer. Print the image onto sublimation transfer paper designed for hard surface products.
Tape the transfer paper on your material. Position your product on the heat press machine and keep face down ,then cover one layer of High temperature insulation cloth , finally start the heat press machine . (Suggest: 200℃ and 70~90 seconds)
Remove the transfer paper from the metal surface (very hot ,take care )
Mount the silver Easels onto the backside of the HD metal with two-sided adhesive tape / if make signage , after get the painted sublimation aluminum sheet , still need cutting machine and bending machine ,then add arc plastic support bar ,finally , one signage is finished .
