• The advantages of dye-sublimation printing cannot be overstated enough and if you’re new to this technology then here’s what you should know.
  • The advantages over screen printing, Direct to garment printing and vinyl transfers are that with sublimation you have an image that with the proper applications used, inks will embed themselves into the material permanently.
  • For an example lets use a Tee Shirt, once the sublimation is applied the material does not have a heavy ink coating on it like traditional screen printing or direct to garment printing were you have a heavy hand to the print area, this causes the apparels material to have insufficient breathability qualities when wearing.
  • Dye sublimation allows the material to breath just as it was in its original state and there is no cracking or peeling of your design, the prints are also 100% washable.
  • The best part, however, is the eco-friendly nature of this process. It uses water-based dyes, which means that no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) are produced like you would get from solvent-based inks. In addition, there is no waste making its way into our waterways as there is no water used in the printing process thus also saving water under dye-sublimation printing and with no water in the process, prints are dry and ready to use as soon as they exit the printer in contrast to the energy-soaking heaters that traditional printing methods use to dry materials.
