Sublimation printing is the application of sublimation inks onto the material using a heat press which provides the vital combination of heat, pressure and time. This combination causes the inks to be transformed from a solid to a gaseous state allowing them to penetrate the material so that a long-lasting, full colour image is formed. The colour infiltrates the surface of the umbrella canopy so that the result is vivid, long-lasting and resilient to scratching unlike some other printing methods that simply print onto the surface of the item.
