Ideal for special finishes, printing photos or designs with a lot of detail and colours.
Dye Sublimation printing is a full colour, full-coverage printing technique. Sublimation is the technique of transferring a special dye onto polyester fabric. Your artwork is printed onto paper and pressed onto the fabric using high heat. Colours are extremely vibrant and photo-realistic, with a durable and smooth feel. The design possibilities are therefore endless!
It is most effective on white or light coloured fabrics and can print in full colour, including fluoro, metallic and reflective colours. It is commonly used in fashion clothing and sportswear.
Your artwork is printed onto a special paper and transferred onto a white or lightly coloured polyester garment by applying high heat and pressure. The solid dye particles convert into gas -- known as sublimation -- where they diffuse into the polyester fibres and re-solidify. Unlike screen printing, embroidery or transfers, the dye is permanently stained into the fabric. It’s a little like tattooing, but instead of needles, paper and heat are used to stain fabric dot by dot.
