Getting Started


Choosing RBrad Designs

Sublimation printing requires special printers, inks and substrates. While I do not personally utilize sublimation in mass production. There are ways to get the vivid colors from prints by outsourcing. RBrad Designs works with Cyberhorse Sportswear ( to get the prints needed for partial sublimation application. RBD also works with CHS for singlets and tees with their line of apparel.

  • Sublimation needs special ink, paper and specific substrates with polymer coating to work.
