The key to the patented SubliJet-R system is the chemical process. When sublimation inks are heated to 400°F, they turn into a gas and form a permanent bond to 100% polyester fabric or items that have a polymer coating. The result is a premium, full-color, photographic-quality image that will not crack, peel or wash away from the substrate to which it was applied.



Gel-Based Formulation In High-Capacity Cartridges

A gel-based formulation, SubliJet-R is packaged in high-capacity cartridges for maximum reliability and extended uninterrupted printing.


Extreme Color

SubliJet-R delivers extremely vibrant colors and stunning resolution at levels that other digital process simply cannot match. It’s the top choice for professional photographers and digital imagers that demand precision and fine detail in every image.


Superior Longevity

Sublimated images created with SubliJet-R are permanent! Hard substrate surfaces won’t crack, peel or scratch. Apparel won’t fade – ever – no matter how many times it is washed.


Infused Image

Unlike screen-printing, print-cut vinyl and direct-to-substrate printing which are sitting on the surface of the product, sublimation ink is actually infused into surface itself.
