What You Need to Start Sublimating Hard and Soft Goods

What You Need to Start Sublimating Hard and Soft Goods by David Gross
One benefit of sublimation transfer is that it provides incredible photo quality results on both soft and hard substrates. Whether you are producing holiday ornaments, award plaques, or T-shirts, you are essentially using the same equipment and supplies to create them all. With products ranging in size from jewelry to car floor mats, the most important thing is to pick a sublimation printer and heat press that are large enough to produce the items you want to sell now or are thinking about in the future.

Items you’ll need to get started

1. Inkjet sublimation printer running high-quality sublimation inks
2. Graphics software program(s) for working with both raster and vector artwork
3. Sublimation media (a variety of papers exist for hard and soft substrates)
4. Heat tape or spray for holding transfers securely in place during the heating process
5. Swing-away heat press for producing a wider variety of products with different thicknesses
6. Mug press for producing traditional coffee mugs or a convection oven and specialized shrink film for producing traditional coffee mugs and newer styles of drinkware
7. A clean, flat surface for cooling the pressed items
8. A supplier that provides the experience and support you need to be successful
