Sublimation

Designs that Stand Out

The process of sublimation begins with an image that is printed onto special transfer paper.

The images are then transferred onto shirts or other products by a heat press.

The heat press allows the dye to penetrate deep into the garment, creating a permanent image that won’t fade or wash out when washed in a washing machine.

Any garment or object with a polyester base or polyester coating can be designed with the help of sublimation printing. 
With pressure and heat, the dye on the medium sublimates and transforms into a gas. It is then absorbed by the polyester to reflect the design.

High quality sublimation printing won’t fade or crack on the fabric and the printing is very light and doesn’t have a harsh texture.

This technique uses heat sensitive inks, so the print looks bright even after many washes.

Dye sublimation prints are perfect for:

  • Sports uniforms
  • workwear
  • promotional items

Because the printed image doesn’t seal the fabric, it can still breath and allow moisture to evaporate.
