Dye Sublimation CardStyle Printing

Dye Sublimation Printing

Dye Sublimation Printing "dye sub" card printing requires that the print head of the card printer print directly onto the card material through the printer ribbon. This process is efficient, inexpensive and allows the card printer to move the material directly under the print head for printing.

This method of printing always leaves a very thin white border around the card as the print head cannot adequately print completely out to the edge of the card without risking serious damage to the print head. Depending upon the printer this can leave a "border" of up to 1/32nd of an inch around the edge of the card.

Dye Sublimation printing is most often used for ID Badges, Time Cards, Gift Cards, Single Color or Multiple Color low volume printing. 

For Dye Sublimation Printing we use several different printers to get the best quality image specific for each job requirement.  We currently use the following printers in our service bureau:
