Dye sublimation is one of the newest and most innovative decoration techniques to come to the apparel industry. By utilizing heat to transfer dye directly to fabric, sublimation creates crisp, photo-realistic imagery in one clean step. There are no limitations with colors, sizing, or imagery, allowing even the most detailed artwork to be used!
Sublimation is done by digitally printing liquid gel ink onto large panels of parchment, then heat pressing the sheets directly onto the garment fabric. The heat and pressure bind the sublimation dyes at the molecular level onto the product. The result is a permanent, high resolution, full color print. This process is most effective on polyester materials but can be done on mixed fabrics to create different results.
