A typical sublimation system consists of the printer, sublimation inks and paper, and the heat press. In addition, a software RIP/driver for properly printing the special inks should come with the inks from the supplier. The actual blank imprintable material/product rounds off the system. You are printing your artwork to the printer, onto special inks and paper, and then heat pressing it onto your final product – it is that simple!
