What is Dye-Sublimation?
Dye-sublimation is a unique printing process that allows us to create high quality full color fabric prints. The prints are vivid and sharp and display your images or graphics in a very professional manner.
Specialty inks are printed to a sublimation transfer paper. These transfer prints are then pressed to the sublimation fabric using high heat and specific pressure. The inks transfer from the paper directly into the fibers of the fabric in a gas-like form. This makes the final product smooth and beautiful. Once complete, the image is embedded into the fabric and can be washed, dried and ironed without losing quality or durability.
Products using Dye-Sublimation
We use dye-sublimation on all sorts of display and apparel products. Typically sublimation is used on Polyester or fabrics that are machine manufactured (though not all will work.) The dye process allows the inks to penetrate the fabric or garment so the composition is important.
For displays, we use dye-sublimation on Step and Repeat banners, flags, table covers/runners, backdrops, pop-up canopies and many other display items.
For apparel, we use dye-sublimation for Sports Jerseys, Socks, Activewear and any garment that is 100% Polyester and would benefit from a full color yet soft feel.
