Understanding Dye Sublimation Printing
We use the latest digital apparel dye sublimation printing equipment which yields high-definition (HD) printing quality and a wider range of stunning colors.
With Dye Sublimation printing solid dye particles are printed on special treated paper and are converted into a gas when using heat and pressure. The dye in a gas form penetrates the fibers of the manmade synthetic material infusing or embedding the image into the fabric that will not crack, peel or fade when washed.
Because of the chemistry involved in the sublimation process, it will only bond with polymers and polyester so 100% polyester is the best fiber choice. Therefore, Dye Sublimation printing will not work for fabrics such as cotton, bamboo, wool etc. Poly/cotton blends will work but the printing result will be faded or have a “retro” look.
