The Process of Sublimation Printing
Traditional screen-printing processes use a vinyl material that is transferred onto the fabric. Although this is an easy and affordable solution it definitely not definitely is not durable which is a necessary quality of athletic apparel. The durability of Jerseys plays a key factor as players are continuously pushing themselves to their physical limits. Here is where Sublimation steps in. Using high heat, the colour dye is merged into the fabric using a sublimation press. This heating process vaporizes the dye and transfers the design into the actual fibres of the fabric, instead of only being applied to the surface of the material.
The steps of sublimation:
⦁ The uniform is designed digitally on a computer and printed onto a special type of sublimation paper.
⦁ The sublimation printer is preheated to reach an optimal temperature to vaporize the dye.
⦁ The printed design is placed face down onto the uniform material
⦁ A final check is performed to make sure everything is properly aligned and the design is secured using thermal tape or adhesive to keep it from slipping out of place.
⦁ The heated press is firmly applied to the uniform and held in place until the dye has worked itself into the fabric.
⦁ The press is then lifted and the fabric is allowed to cool.
⦁ You got yourself a vivid crisp image on the uniform Experienced sublimation uniform makers use this technique to get vivid results with short turnaround times.
