Process of Dye Sublimation

How Dye Sublimation Printing Works?

Dye sublimation printing excels on polyester fabrics and polymer-coated substrates, ensuring optimal print quality. It is particularly effective for complex, colourful designs such as photographic images and intricate patterns. This method ensures that these designs remain sharp and fade-resistant, ideal for activewear, banners, and custom apparel that require high visual impact.

Printing the Design

Ink Transfer onto Sublimation Paper 

The design is initially printed onto sublimation paper using special sublimation ink. This type of ink is designed to turn into a gas when heated, setting the stage for the transfer process.

Preparing the T-Shirt

Setting the Stage for Perfect Transfer 

A pre-sewn T-shirt is placed on a heat press, ensuring the fabric is smooth and wrinkle-free and the design will be received perfectly.

Aligning the Sublimation Paper

Precision in Placement 

The sublimation paper, bearing the printed design, is carefully aligned and placed on top of the t-shirt, matching the desired print placement for accuracy.

Applying Heat and Pressure

The Magic of Sublimation 

Heat and pressure are then applied to the paper and t-shirt. This causes the gaseous ink to penetrate and bond permanently with the polyester fabric, ensuring the design's durability.

Revealing the Design

Peeling to Perfection 

After the sublimation process, the paper is peeled off to reveal a vibrant, full-coverage printed design that captures every detail.

Post-Process Finishing

Final Touches 

Depending on the original garment construction, the printed T-shirt may require trimming or additional finishing to enhance the final look.

Durability of Sublimation Prints

Built to Last 

Sublimation printing embeds the design deep into the fabric, making it highly durable and resistant to cracking, fading, or peeling, ensuring longevity.

The Final Product

Fine and Long-Lasting Results 

The result of the sublimation process is a high-quality, full-coverage printed t-shirt. The vibrant, long-lasting colours are seamlessly integrated into the fabric without any white streaks around the seams, showcasing the precision of this technique.

Advantages of Dye Sublimation

Dollar Card Icon

Superior Quality Prints & Long-Lasting Color

Dye sublimation printing ensures vibrant colours and deep colour penetration into the fabric, resulting in colourful prints that are long-lasting without fading. This method produces high-quality prints with high-resolution outcomes, allowing for clear, detailed images that maintain their integrity even under close inspection.

Effective for Larger Runs

Dye sublimation is cost-effective, particularly for larger production runs, as it allows for continuous printing with minimal waste, reducing overall production costs.

Seamless Design Integration

Unlike other printing methods, dye sublimation ensures the ink is embedded into the substrate, resulting in a print that won’t destroyed over time. These prints are highly resistant to cracking, peeling or washing out, making them ideal for frequently used items.

Quick Turnaround Times

Dye sublimation printing in Australia offers quick production cycles, which is perfect for businesses requiring a fast turnaround for projects and promotional materials.

Eco-Friendly Printing Solution

Dye sublimation uses less water and energy than other printing methods and does not involve solvents or heavy metals, making it a more environmentally friendly option.

Consistency

This denotes consistent quality across all prints and batches, which is important for branding and professional presentations. It guarantees uniformity in all produced items.

Potential Limitations of Dye Sublimation

What are the Possible Disadvantages?

  • The dye sublimation process can only be done on white or light fabrics that are polyester-based.
  • Build-your-own garments are not able to be sublimated.
  • Exact colour matching via the Pantone Matching System might not be possible.

Certain Hues can look different on a Computer Screen and on Print

Some Colors can look Different in Real Life

There aren't many things our incredible DTG process cannot achieve! However, when choosing the colors for your artwork, it’s important to note that they may look different on a real product than what you see on your computer monitor. Even if you have calibrated your monitor to a specific color profile, there are various factors that influence the final appearance of colors on a printed product. Because of this, we can’t guarantee color accuracy 100%.

Our printers will convert your submitted print file from RGB to CMYK color space. This color conversion process changes the color gamut, or range of colors that can be expressed. You must be very cautious when using bright neon and pastel RGB values in your print files. Some examples include hot pinks, lime greens, construction orange, highlighter yellow, Easter egg shades, etc. You should also consider other factors like fabric material, garment color, and whether your print will require a white under base layer when choosing colors.

If color accuracy is important to you, we suggest ordering our pre-made color swatches on a sample product. You can use those swatches to decide which RGB values best compare to the desired results when printed on a physical product.
