Learn & Make in the Quad: Sublimation Printing

A sublimation printer uses polymer-based dyes and paper to create images, such as a favorite photo. Using a heat press, these images are transferred onto a variety of objects such as ceramic tile, wood, metal, plastic, and fabric. These objects must be made of polyester, or treated with a polyester coating for sublimation to work. Due to heat and pressure, the dyes are absorbed into the polyester surface of the specially treated item to create a permanent image.

Bring your favorite photo, or a design you created and saved as a .jpg, on a flash drive or smartphone and make a photo coaster, mug or bookmark. Limit 1 item per person/per week.
