What is sublimation printing
Sublimation printing is an efficient method of transferring images onto materials. Using a heat press, a full colour image is heated to a temperature of up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. At this point, the ink turns into a gaseous state and is embedded into the fibres of the material. The ink solidifies as it cools down and remains permanently set into the material.
Sublimation printing is just one method of printing onto clothing and is ideally suited for printing onto polyester material. It is a great method for printing high quality, full colour images onto material. And, unlike screen printing, there is no setup cost so can be printed with no minimum order.
As the ink is embedded into the fibres, rather than printed on the surface of the material it is very durable. The image will look better over time and will last a lot longer than other printing methods. And because it’s not prone to cracking it performs especially well after multiple washes.
