Dye Sublimation Clothing Printing
Dye Sublimation is a process where a garment (100% polyester) absorbs the dye at a certain temperature. The design is then part of the garment, not on top like a screen print, and this process means you can print full colour logos and photos onto clothing. The garments still retain a ‘cotton-feel’ because the design is part of the fabric. The limitations are that the garment ideally needs to be 100% polyester and needs to be white or a pale colour as the process does not use white ink – any areas of the design which are white would show as the colour of the fabric.
Dye Sublimation is a great solution for small quantities of items with full colour photos or logos on t-shirts or running vests featuring sponsor logos, charity names, etc.
