What is Dye Sublimation Printing?

A dye sublimation printer actually heats a solid directly into a gaseous state, bypassing the liquid state. Both the dye and the PVC card are heated, and the gaseous dye penetrates the plastic. When the card cools, the dye has been chemically bonded with the plastic card.
