Dye sublimation is the process of printing to fabric that provides the best quality, most durable printing option. With sublimation, the inks are fused into the fabric, instead of being placed on top of the fabric like screen printing or inkjet processes. Sublimation produces a very high-quality product
The sublimation process gives fabrics a softer touch after the printing, and is also very durable. The colour remains bold under lighting and after washing.
Sublimation printing makes use of a process which transfers heat, so that a paper release liner is able to print through the process of using sublimation dyes. Once heat is added, the printed image transforms into gas, which moves the dye from the paper to the item of clothing.
Sublimation is great for polyester fabrics, as these types of fabrics allow colours to be as bright and vivid as possible. Sublimation allows the fabric to maintain its technical structures like breathability and moisture wicking.
A sublimation print will last the lifespan of the fabric, it is unable to be washed out.
