The equipment

Engraved Connections also uses Dye-sublimation printing (or dye-sub printing) for a variety of projects. This a computer printing technique which uses heat to transfer dye onto a variety of substrates. A special printer is used to create the artwork (or dye), which is then transferred to the substrate via a dedicated heat press. It allows us to create one custom item as well as larger quantities. Dye sublimation also allows for imprinting in full color, which is desirable for many projects.
