Sublimation Heat Transfer

Full dye sublimation heat transfer is a process for transferring designs onto fabrics and other materials using special inks and heat. The process begins by printing a design onto sublimation transfer paper using sublimation inks. The inks are specially formulated to turn into a gas when heated, allowing them to penetrate the fibers of the fabric. The transfer paper with the printed design is then placed on top of the fabric and heat and pressure are applied. The heat causes the inks to turn into a gas and penetrate the fibers of the fabric, creating a permanent, high-quality image on the fabric.


Majority sublimation heat transfer printing use “cut and sew full body print” method. This process is print and transfer the image on polyester fabric, and then send the pre-printed fabric for cut and sew to become a complete t-shirt.
The cut and sew full body sublimation heat transfer print produces higher quality results and provides more options for customization to make garments unique and set them apart from the competition. However, cut and sew full body sublimation is not cost effective for low quantity order and it need longer lead time for production.


Advantages of Sublimation Heat Transfer

There are several advantages to using sublimation heat transfer to create custom designs on T-shirts:

High-quality: Sublimation heat transfer produces high-quality, vibrant designs that are resistant to fading, cracking, and peeling.
Durability: The designs created using sublimation heat transfer are durable and can withstand frequent washing and wear.
Cost-effective: It is a cost-effective method for creating custom designs on fabrics and other materials, as it does not require expensive equipment or large quantities of materials.
Full-color printing: Sublimation printing allows for full-color printing, enabling a wide range of designs, including photographs, to be printed onto fabrics.
Soft feel : Sublimation transfer allows for a soft feel on the fabric after the transfer process, unlike some other heat transfer methods that leave a stiff or plastic-like feel on the fabric.
