Custom T-Shirts Dye sublimation

Dye sublimation is a printing method that uses ink and heat to transfer a design onto a material or fabric. Dye-sublimation printing is a computer digital printing technique that transfers full color artwork onto polyester and polymer-coated substrates. Sometimes referred to as digital sublimation, Dye sublimation is often used for adorning clothing, banners and signs however it can also be used on non-fabric products with sublimation-friendly surfaces such as specially coated plastics, card stocks, or paper. The process of sublimation is one in which heat and pressure are applied to a solid dye, transforming it into a gas via an endothermic reaction without passing through the liquid phase of matter. Technically it is possible that a semi-liquid state can be entered by some dye sublimation techniques, which actually makes those dye-diffusion methods, however for our purposes we are only discussing true dye sublimation.

Dye sublimation can be used on a variety of fabrics such as canvas and treated cotton. However, it is most easily applied to polyester blended fabrics. When the dye is heated onto the fabric, the polymers in the polyester encourage the inks to bond, which fully embeds the graphics into the material.
