WHAT IS SUBLIMATION PRINTING?

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.

  • Printed on 100% Polyester
  • Shirts only available in white allowing for true, bolder color

EXPECTED RESULTS

Sublimation printing is awesome, but not magic. Expect some imperfections around seams and folds.

  • Smudges & White Streaks near edges, seams and collars are normal (pictured above). White streaks will appear on all t-shirts around the seams, especially around the shoulders, under the armpits, and around the collar of the shirt. Therefore, we advise using a lighter color shade in your sublimation print files to minimize the steak visibility.
  • Single-Sided Prints will show the bare garment color on the non-printed side.
  • Seems on the sleeves and side will not always match up. Graphics that wrap from front to back are not do-able. For instance, we wouldn’t be able to accurately print your shirt if you wanted a dragon graphic that wraps around the torso to line up front-to-back.
  • Design Within These Limitations in mind by strategically placing patterns or graphics near problem areas.
  • Beware of Web Images! High-quality prints require artwork that’s at least 150 dpi.
