WHAT IS DYE-SUBLIMATION?
‘Dye-sub’ is a printing technique that allows full color printing onto materials such as metal, plastic, wood, paper, or fabric. Your artwork is printed onto a sheet of paper and transferred onto your product using heat and pressure. Heat converts the solid ink into a gaseous state (sublimation) and bonds them to the polyester fibers or poly coating.
This process requires white or very light colored garments, since any colored background drastically alters the imprint colors. Since sublimation will become part of the product, any color already on the garment will overwhelm the transferred image.
