You may have heard the term ‘sublimation’. Some apparel decorators call it dye-sub, or dye sublimation printing,
So, what is sublimation? Sublimation is a process by which sublimation dyes are printed onto a special transfer paper using an inkjet printer specially designed for sublimation. Those dyes are then transferred from the paper to the garment using heat and pressure from a commercial heat press. Sublimation only works on polyester garments, or on items made of polyester. When the heat and pressure are applied, the dye on the transfer paper becomes a gas, and is then absorbed into the polyester; the print becomes part of the garment. It is durable and doesn’t have any texture or weight.
