Edible ink is probably one of the most interesting – not to mention delectable – inventions made these past few years. If you have seen a photo image on the icing of a cake at least once, then you have had your encounter with edible ink and have eaten it too.
Sublimation is when a substance transitions between the solid and gas states without going through a liquid stage, dry ice is an example. In a dye sublimation printer the printing dye is heated up until it turns into a gas, at which point it diffuses onto the printing media and solidifies.
