Dye sublimation printing is a relatively new printing technology that in recent years has taken the printing world by storm. Using dye sublimation printing it is possible to create permanent high definition prints on any polyester coated material or fabric. Dye sublimation printing is a full color, full-coverage printing technique. Your artwork is printed onto a sheet of high-release paper and transferred onto your apparel using heat and pressure. The dye particles convert into gas - known as sublimation - where they bond to the polyester fibers. Unlike screen printing, the dye is absorbed by the fabric for a fantastic, soft-to-the-hand feel. All-Over t-shirt printing is a great alternative to custom-made t-shirts with full-coverage designs. Unlike custom garment production, which required minimum of units per style, all-over printing can be done for one-off t-shirts or any quantity required. For this service we are using Dye-Sublimation printing, so there is no limitation with number of colours you can use for you design. All-over printing can be only done on garments that can be laid down flat - like t-shirts, singlets, muscle shirts, etc. This method is not suitable for polo shirts, hoodies or anything with buttons, elastic, rhinestones and other types of decoration. NOTE: during all-over printing there could be slight imperfections within the seams and under the arms, but these are kept to an absolute possible minimum. Advantages: Dye-Sublimation is great for full colour graphics and is suitable for synthetic fabric. This printing method permanently DYES the design into the fabric, leaving NO feel to the print. The design will never crack or fade. There is no limitation for the print size - from logo to an all-over printed t-shirt. NOTE: While it is possible to print on coloured t-shirts - the design should always be darker, than the shirt. Because this printing process dyes the design into the fabric - the colour of the shirt becomes the background of your image. Application Recommended Products: Polyester Fabrics.
