64 • November 2015 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S One of Mimaki's customers printed a design on tile that looked like hand cut tin. "You had to touch it and look closely at it to see it is not tin. The nice thing about it is that it is going to last longer than a piece of hand cut tin would ever last and yet they were able to give the customer what they wanted for a more affordable price and it is easier to clean and is more durable," Martin says. Companies also seem willing to pay extra to have their corporate logos sub- limated onto tiles for their office foy- ers. Companies that remodel homes are using sublimation to put murals in bath- room shower stalls and on kitchen walls. There are many industrial applica- tions for dye sublimation. Car compa- nies are using it to add logos to seats and dashboards. Martin agrees that companies can get into dye sublimation for under $5,000 or between $20,000 and $30,000, depend- ing on their target market. "It really depends on what you are trying to achieve. If you want to do keychains or little awards, you can get in fairly inexpensively," he says. When done right, these types of items can be very profitable.
