Introduction to Sublimation

To those who often shop for fabrics, you probably heard of the term "sublimation."

It comes from the root word "sublime," which means converting matter from a solid state directly to a gaseous state, skipping the liquefaction process.

To make it simple, solid dye is transformed into gaseous ink in order to digitally transfer colors or designs into sublimation fabric.

A specialized inkjet printer is used during this process.

Now that we have briefly discussed the process of sublimation, we are now going into dye sublimation. It is probably the most commonly used fabric printing method. 

Companies use the method to create promotional products. Dye sublimation can be used to print designs on a wide range of products such as t-shirts, bags, uniforms, jackets, etc.

It is also very cost efficient which is why it is used as an affordable means for advertisement.
