During the sublimation process, heat treatment takes place where the dye is transferred from the ribbon to a particular surface. There is a roller inside the sublimation printer, and the paper or object being printed moves back and forth to add dye. This process is fast and heated to dye quickly and thoroughly. Dye sublimation inks make the colors look beautiful.
Although this process seems to be much more complicated than using only inkjet printers, the process is much more accurate. Sublimation dyes are better for some reason and they have their advantages, and of course there are disadvantages.
For beginners, sublimation inks are brighter and more beautiful than traditional inks. Often, when you use a universal printer, the colors fade over time, or they are not as bright as you might want. This is because it is difficult for the printer to achieve the vivid colors and tones you are pursuing. With sublimation printers, you get beautiful, bright colors without fading, and they are more vivid than others.
If you print a piece of paper from a traditional printer and grab the sublimation paper on the printer as quickly as possible, you know that the ink is not dry and you need to dry it. The sublimation dye dries almost immediately, allowing you to grab the paper. Even after drying, the color remains bright and does not smear like traditional ink.

One of the main differences when using sublimation dyes is that it fuses and blends into the paper and does not become pix elated like inkjet colors. You will find that the picture looks better and transmits better than a traditional printer.
