Sublimation printing, also known as dye sublimation printing, is a popular printing method for transferring images onto suitable materials. Typical printing methods involve a step with water, where the solid turns to water before a gaseous state.
How it works? This typically involves the use of a digital printer to produce images on sublimation transfer paper with sublimation ink. The sublimation paper is then placed into a heat press with the material and exposed to high temperatures of about 350 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. This is when the ink and transfer material turn from solid to gas. Once they are in a gas state, they permeate the fibers of the material.
When the heat is removed from the transfer paper and substrate, the ink that has permeated the fibers solidifies and is locked permanently into place by the transfer material. Not only does the heat release the gas from the sublimation ink, but it opens the pores of the material you are transferring the image to. Once the pressure and heat are released, the sublimation ink returns to its solid state and the fabric pores close, trapping the ink inside.
Sublimation best uses? This printing method is best used on products such as polyester apparel in white or light colors or hard surfaces with a poly-coating, such as coasters, mugs, mouse pads and more.
Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image. It is one of the most versatile method of modern printing. This also the most popular method for T-Shirt printing as the printing quality superior, long lasting and do not fade after washes.
Heat Press is imprints a design or graphic directly onto the material, such as a jersey or t-shirt, using transfer paper and a heat press machine.This technique create colorful and photo/toning images with great durability. This process uses the application of heat and pressure to ensure a proper transfer. The pattern is printed in sublimating ink on sublimating paper which allows the pattern to transfer.
Embroidery is the handicraft of decorating fabric or other materials with needle and thread or yarn.This is done by stitching thread to construct an images on the apparel. This technique create excellence qualities and 3 dimensions outlook on the apparels, in additional it outlast the lifespan of shirts. Embroidery used pattern digitalization process, placing on a frame and stitch into the fabric.
