Also referred to as dye sub, is a process that is used in many applications, but is most popular for fabric printing. The ink is specially formulated with solid dye particles that are printed on paper or directly onto fabric. These particles are then sublimated with the combination of heat and pressure. During this process, the particles are transformed into a gas, which is then attracted to the polymers of the textile and permeates the fibers. The end result is a durable printed fabric with vivid colours and a natural feel. Our dye sublimation printer is able to produce graphics on a wide range of fabrics that are always in stock. We are able to produce fabrics up to ten feet wide so your design is never limited.
Usage: Tents, Flags, Pop-Ups, Tensioned Fabric Systems, Table Cloths
