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.

Let's tell you how to do it step by step.

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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)

Step 3

Remove the transfer paper from the metal surface (very hot ,take care )

Step 4

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 .
