Hi and Welcome to Subli Metals, thank you for shopping with us.

We are Nicci and Carl and we are the directors of Subli Metals Ltd, a family-run company based in Yorkshire on the East Coast. We started the company ourselves and now include 12 excellent full and part-time members of staff – Claire, our excellent workshop manager plus Pippa, Emily, Louise, Caroline, Tina, Jodie, Lisa, Jo, and Rebecca – who make up our super Subli Metals team (oh and not forgetting the 4 workshop dogs – Petal, Trixie, Donder and Blitzen!)

We started in retail sublimation printing in 2006, began trading general wholesale sublimation blanks in 2008 and in 2011 decided to specialise in printable metal products only.

Since then we have seen our business grow from strength to strength and we now stock a huge range of sublimation aluminium in various thicknesses and finishes, which we then manufacture into a vast range of items. Our range is constantly expanding – we provide everything from jewellery blanks to large signs and from bookmarks to clocks. Please use our search bar at the top of our site to find specific items quickly (just type name or the size required in mm, without the mm, to see a list of items). As we have experience from both sides of the industry we are able to provide support and advice to you. For starters, we have comprehensive metal pressing instructions available in our Info tab and these, along with other information and hints and tips, are also on our website (please see the inspiration gallery tab). Ongoing, we keep you informed by sending regular updates and newsletters by email and for easy reference also include printed copies in your orders, and for reference they are also available on the news and offers tab.

We strive to be a leader of innovation in our specialised field and have invested heavily into offering a bespoke “Custom Cut” service which means we can now offer many unique shapes and can also cut almost ANY shape from sublimation metal which you may require. See our ‘Samples and Quotes section’ in our Product or Info tab for more details.

We aim to allow complete flexibility in ordering from us, so not only are most of our products customisable with corner, hole and hanging or display options but we also generally have no minimum order per item. We also group many of our popular ranges into packs which helps you discover the range of metals/finishes we offer at discounted prices. We do however have a set £39 minimum order across the site to allow us to maintain our high service level and remain profitable. We offset this by offering ‘Carriage paid’ shipping at the low level of only £95!

We pride ourselves on our super service – even though we manufacture over 90% of our items in house we still offer a very quick turnaround (over 95% of orders despatch same or next day), offer a premium upgrade for extra urgent orders, use only signed for services, have a large stock holding (we are rarely out of stock), quality packing and packaging, include instructions etc

We respond to YOUR ideas and have many products on our website that were originally suggested by customers. If you see something you would like us to produce, email us and we will try our very best to help. Order issues however need to be solved using our “Shortage, Damage, Incorrect item notification’ procedure (also listed on the tabs at the top of the site) so we can sort any issue promptly.

With every order, you will receive FREE samples, so that we can showcase our range to you and we run an ongoing incentive for you to print up these samples, send us a photo to share to win a £10 money off coupon!

Our purpose is not JUST to supply you, but SUPPORT you – with great service, competitive prices, a flexible and ever-growing, unique product range with back-up items such as templates and designs. We offer marketing and retailing ideas as well as hints and tips to help you make the most of YOUR business. We back this all with a 100% satisfaction guarantee including a no quibble return policy – we only want to supply you if you are completely happy with our products and service!
