1. A process for decoration of the surfaces of an object by sublimation of ink,comprising the steps of:

  • using as a sublimable ink support a material which is extensible and air-permeable so as to conform to the shape of the object to be decorated without altering the decoration to be sublimated;

    enveloping the object in the ink support so that all its surfaces are covered; and

    placing the assembly in a vacuum machine, which is thereafter introduced into a heated space to cause transfer of the decoration to all the surfaces of the object to be decorated.
