WHAT IS DYE SUBLIMATION?

Dye Sublimation is a jersey making process that includes using heat to transfer dye from the printer paper to the fabric. This produces a jersey with vibrant colors and will have minimal fading. The ink is made to last for a longer time than other jersey making processes out there.

ADVANTAGES OF DYE SUBLIMATION

> The Dye does not build up on any of the fabrics.

> Images are permanent and are less likely to fade.

> Will last longer than other jersey products.

> Colors are vivid and extraordinarily brilliant because of the bonding of the dye to the fibers in the fabrics.

> You design it with minimal limitations.

DYE SUBLIMATION

1. We print the jersey from our industrial size printer that prints the exact sizes. The design gets printed on  paper with some coating on it.


2. We then place the printed paper onto the fabric. Usually a polyester material works the best, but can work on a myriad of fabrics.


3. Then, we heat and press to transfer design on the printer paper to the fabric.  With temperatures over 200° C, the ink from the printer paper transfers to the fabric seamlessly. (See Photo on Left of Heat Press)


4. Finally, we separate the fabric from the paper.  It takes only seconds to dry and the fabric is ready to go.
