What is Sublimation?

Most hard based media utilise the sublimation printing technique. This is the transfer any image that has been created digitally either by scanning, digital photograph or custom image creation. Printed using special inks called sublimation inks onto paper and then placed under a heat transfer press on top of your substrate. The paper and substrate is heated until the inks turn to a gas and transfers the image onto the item you are making.

The placing of an order by a client and the acceptance of that order by Original Digital Art brings into being a contract on the terms set out in the following paragraphs. In exceptional circumstances and entirely at its own discretion Original Digital Art may accept an order given orally by an existing or former Client who has in the past had notice of these terms. These terms shall apply equally to an order given and accepted orally. In the case of Original Digital Art accepting an order given orally, the Client shall confirm the order in writing as soon as practical. In the absence of written confirmation Original Digital Art will not accept liability for any error in executing the order which arises as a result of misunderstanding or mishearing caused by the order being given orally. Original Digital Art reserves the absolute right to refuse to accept any order whatsoever and for whatever reason, particularly in cases where Original Digital Art has reason to believe that acceptance and execution of the order will lead to a breach by it of the laws of obscenity, libel or copyright, or to the aiding and abetting or condoning of such a breach by any other party. Sizes quoted are not precise. It is the Client's responsibility to inform Original Digital Art at the time of ordering if any dimensions are critical.

The Client must accept that close colour matching is subjective and that totally accurate colour matching to 100% fidelity is rarely possible. However, Original Digital Art will endeavour to achieve the closest possible colour match within the limitation of materials and processes used. Where accurate colour matching is essential, the Client shall provide sample materials for use by Original Digital Art as colour matching guides. It shall be the responsibility of the Client to ensure that all materials presented for processing, printing, copying, duplicating, restoration or any other process of reproduction ("the Material") are free from any third party claims for breach of copyright or licence. By placing an order with Original Digital Art the Client certifies and warrants that: (i) no copyright exists in the Material; or (ii) the Client is the owner of the copyright in the Material and that any reproduction by Original Digital Art will not infringe the rights of any existing licensee: or (iii) the Client has the valid authority of the copyright owner (or of an existing licensee of the copyright owner) to authorise the reproduction of the Material as required by the order (iv) the Material does not contain anything which is obscene, blasphemous, libellous or otherwise unlawful. The Client acknowledges that the breach of copyright in the course of trade or business is both civil wrong and a criminal offence under the terms of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

The Client shall ensure that artwork sketches and specific copying material supplied by him or his agents shall be accurate, unambiguous and clearly legible. Proofs may be submitted for Client approval. Original Digital Art shall not be liable for any errors that have not been corrected by the Client. Client alterations, other than alterations arising from mistakes on the part of Original Digital Art, may give rise to an extra charge. Equally additional work caused by omissions or ambiguity in the Client's copy or instructions may also incur an additional charge. In either such case any additional charge shall be such reasonable amount as reflects the additional work which Original Digital Art has had to undertake. The completed materials produced by Original Digital Art shall correspond with the description referred to on the Order Form and with any approved sample, illustration, descriptive material or artwork save where such sample, illustration, descriptive material or artwork has been made available by Original Digital Art for illustrative purposes only. Metal, film, glass, computer disk and other materials used in the production or delivery of artworks shall remain the property of Original Digital Art.
