Have you heard about the wonders of custom sublimation printing? With dye sublimation printing a whole world of possible designs opens up because it is a powerful yet simple tool for customization. Many of the custom retail garments you see with super-detailed images or photographic quality prints have been done with dye sublimation printing. What’s awesome is that anybody can do their own custom sublimation! It’s true! Even if you don’t have previous experience customizing your own garments, we at AMBRO Manufacturing can provide you with top notch custom sublimation.
So let’s talk about the process and you’ll see why dye sublimation is so popular. First you take digital artwork and print it out of a sublimation printer onto a heat transfer sheet. The printer will perfectly reproduce the full artwork using special heat reactive dyes that are formulated to sublimate (convert from a solid into a gas) when heated. Once the print has been administered to the transfer sheet you can then take the sheet and heat press it against the blank garment. During the time in the heat press the heat causes the dyes to sublimate and the pressure forces the dyes to bind with the fibers of the garment permanently.
Sublimation printing differs from many other printing methods because instead of depositing an ink on the surface, the dyes are actually absorbed into the material for a permanent hold. No matter how many times you wash or wear the garment the print will keep soldiering on because it’s essentially a part of the fabric now!
