Sublimation Printing

Sublimation Printing


Sublimation printing is a method that transfers artwork onto garments using heat and pressure, turning the ink into a gas that embeds into the fabric's fibers. This process ensures exceptional durability without the rubbery texture found in heat transfer printing. The ink becomes part of the fabric, resulting in a seamless look and feel and allowing for vibrant and detailed designs.

However, it's important to note that sublimation printing is not suitable for cotton-based clothing. It works best on materials like microfiber eyelets, microfiber interlock, and mini mesh, making it a versatile choice for various garments, including round neck and V-neck t-shirts, polo tees, singlets, and Muslimah attire.

How Does Sublimation Work?

Sublimation is defined as the transformation from a solid state into a gaseous one. In the dye sublimation printing process, ink undergoes a conversion into a gaseous form, which then permeates the fibers of a garment.

The sublimation printing technique necessitates the use of advanced printing machinery capable of precise measurement and application of the gaseous ink. These specialized printers are designed exclusively for sublimation printing. Once the gaseous ink is infused into the garment's fibers, it is allowed to cool.

During the cooling process, the gaseous ink transitions back into a solid state, resulting in the fiber adopting the color of the ink. Remarkably, the colored fiber retains most of its original characteristics.

One notable advantage of sublimation printing is that it leaves no unpleasant rubbery or rough residue. As a result, a printed garment boasts a smooth and natural feel.


Advantages of Sublimation Printing

No Minimum Orders

Sublimation offers the advantage of minimal initial setup, as the image design is digitally processed through computer software.

This computer-based system also handles the measurement and blending for the creation of the designated image, which is then transferred onto a special paper and applied using heat transfer techniques.

One of the remarkable features of sublimation is its flexibility in terms of order quantities, with no minimum requirements. This process excels in delivering highly detailed and vibrant print images.

Intricate Designs

Sublimation printing leverages ink-jet printing technologies akin to those found in contemporary photographic printers.

The output from these sublimation printers results in an abundance of intricate details and stunning color renditions.

When precision and image intricacy are paramount, we wholeheartedly recommend opting for dye sublimation printing.

Long Lasting Designs

Sublimation printing stands out for its remarkable durability, attributed to the ink's infusion into the fabric's fibers. This ensures a long-lasting result. Everytees strongly advocates the use of dye sublimation when you desire extended longevity for items like t-shirts and company uniforms.

Furthermore, in addition to its longevity, dye sublimation offers a soft and natural feel. This is achieved by the ink becoming an integral part of the garment's fibers, as opposed to merely sitting on the surface.

Disdvantages of Sublimation Printing


Regrettably, the dye sublimation process is not suitable for cotton-based clothing. This is primarily due to the heat generated during sublimation, which transforms the ink from a liquid to a gaseous state. This heat adversely impacts cotton fibers, preventing the ink from being fully absorbed into them.
