Q&A with Bramdon Adams
- Printing Specialist
What kind of printing process do you use?
I use dye sublimation printing.
What does sublimation mean?
Sublimation occurs when a substance is modified from a solid to a gas state without going through a liquid phase.
What is sublimation printing?
Basically, it’s a heat-transfer process.
But, for the techies:
- I print your image in reverse on special paper – the printing dye is heated in our sublimation printer until it turns into a gas, which then diffuses onto the paper and solidifies.
- I then place the reversed image onto the surface of the pre-cut puzzle and heat to temperatures of up to 400 °C.
- Once again, the dye turns into gas and permeates the actual fibres of the puzzle’s substrate. It then solidifies, becoming permanently embedded in the puzzle’s surface.
All of our puzzle materials are coated with a polymer, making the image transfer process possible.
How do I take care of my customized puzzle?
- Don’t leave your puzzle in the sun for long periods of time, as the image might fade.
- The glossy surface of your puzzle can be dusted or wiped with a slightly damp cloth, keeping water away from the edges and back of the puzzle pieces.
- Don’t submerge your puzzle in water, as it will disintegrate.
