Dye sublimation is a printing technique that allows all-over-printing of full color images with superior softness. Artwork is first printed onto large sheets of high release paper substrate, and the images are then transferred to the garments using heat and pressure. The heat converts the solid dye particles into a gas, and the pressure forces them to bond to the polyester content of the garments. The dye is absorbed by the garment during the sublimation process, which differs from the screen print process, where the ink sits on top of the garment.
Dye Sublimation Tees produce a high-quality printed image, with a distressed look around creases and seams.
Sublimation printing will not crack, peel or flake off. Sublimated shirts leave a permanent vivid image with a soft-to-the-hand feel.
