What's the difference between a sublimation printer and an inkjet printer?

Sublimation printers and standard inkjet printers differ in the ink they use and how they print. Sublimation machines use special ink that turns into a gas when heated. This gas enters the material, creating colorful prints that last a long time and feel smooth.

Standard inkjet printers use liquid ink that absorbs into the paper. This creates prints with texture however, these prints may not last as long as sublimated prints.
