Sublimation where to buy
Your success as a sublimation business will largely depend on the printer you have and the quality of blanks you can provide to your shoppers. Try to find a distributor that offers the type of printer you are looking for and who has items that are well made, well coated in polyester, keep up with consumer buying trends and are cost effective.

What sublimation items sell best?
That is a loaded question. First, we would ask you to look at the audience you are trying to sell to or think about the designs/pictures you want to create with. But, there are without a doubt some items that never fail to sell in the sublimation market. 11oz & 15oz ceramic mugs are always a hot seller. 20oz Stainless Steel straight tumblers in white and glitter are also incredibly popular. Neoprene can coolers, tote bags, sequin backpacks, baby blankets, aprons and stainless steel can coolers are also very popular.
