PVC ID Cards using Dyb Sublimation?

Can we use the dye sub printer to make PVC photo ID cards for cosplay? I haven’t taken the dye sub class, but wanted to know if this would be a good way of making ID cards.

I’m not sure if the PVC cards can stand up to the 375-400 degree temperature that is needed. My Googlefu suggest no:

At what temperature does PVC soften ? Softening starts at approximately 250 degrees F. Material becomes viscous at 350 degrees F. Material carbonizes at 425 degrees F.

Johnson Plastic has a material called Subliflex that would probably work for your purpose.
