Sublimation Photo Slate
Sublimation Photo Slate.
These are made of rock with a white printable face to them, so they are reasonably heavy and sturdy. We offer three different sizes:
Small Rectangular approx 4 inches by 6 inches
Medium Rectangular approx 6 inches by 8 inches
Large Rectangular approx A4 size
Small Square approx 5.5 inches
Medium Square approx 8 inches
Small Heart approx 6 inches by 6 inches
They are all supplied with a sturdy plastic stand (2 pieces).
Printed just like any other flat bed item these provide a unique way of displaying photos.
Due to the natural surface of this product the printable face is flat, but to ensure a good firm contact between your flat bed press and the surface of the slate you may benefit from a sheet of silicon rubber which evens out any slight undulations in the surface.
Press temp 190 - 200 degrees
Photo Slates take a long time to heat up so when we press these we heat them in the press for about 1 minute. At the same time we allow the red silicon wrap to heat up to maximise the heat into the photo slate when transfering the image. The Photo Slate will be HOT so be careful when handling. Once the photo slates has been preheated lay on top of the image and hold in place with heat tape. Place in the heat press, lay the silicon pad over the top and press with medium pressure for 9 minutes.
