Unlike traditional printing that puts ink on a substrate like paper or plastic, sublimation actually converts the colors to a gas and they absorb into the substrate. The result is an extremely high end beautiful personalized auction paddle. Considered to be "permanent" they should last for years. The substrate is wood or plastic with a receptive plastic coating that can be converted to virtually any color including PMS color matches. This is the best pro bid paddle we offer. Available one or two sides with or without numbering.
