Sublimation printing is a technique that uses heat sensitive inks. These inks turn into gas under the influence of heat and combine with a 100% polyester medium. Since the ink becomes part of the structure of the material, the images on the fabric don’t fade or crack – even after multiple washings.
The biggest advantage is that our dye sublimation process creates a finished product that is noticeably more durable. As the dye essentially impregnates the fabric, it actually becomes a part of the fabric itself. The printing then cannot be damaged with wear, nor can it be flaked off or crack.
Dye sublimation printing on fabrics is usually more visually appealing. It creates smoother and brighter color transitions and variations than inkjet printing. Fabrics that have been printed with dye sublimation usually have an overall more superior look and sleeker finish.
