What is Sublimation Printing?
Sublimation Printing is a printing transfer process which uses heat sensitive sublimation inks to permanently dye synthetic fabrics.
The process, which is called "Dye Sublimation", involves the use of a special heat sensitive dye to print your design onto paper.
The printed paper is then placed with the synthetic fabric into a heat press and pressed for a pre-determined period.
The sublimation cycle transfers the design from the paper to the fabric.
Sublimation is always done on synthetic materials and at high temperatures.
What Does This Mean For Your Printed Garments?
As the sublimation process actually dyes the garment, the colour is "in" the fabric and not on top, as is the case with traditional screen printing methods.
This gives a much better feel to the garment, as well as colour fastness and the ability to print unlimited colours.
Sublimation printing also enables the production of "all over prints" which allows your design to extend across the whole garment.
What kind of fabric can be printed?
Sublimation only works on garments made of polyester, or on specialty objects made of polyester or given a polyester coating.
When the heat and pressure are applied, the dye on the transfer paper sublimates, or becomes a gas, and is then absorbed into the polyester itself, the print is actually a part of the garment.
It does not fade easily, wear, or have any texture or weight.
