Dye-sublimation is a printing method used on light-coloured polyester fabrics. It is mainly employed to print on sportswear, e.g.: T-shirts, tops, sweatshirts; and accessories, e.g.: cushions.Since sublimation is a chemical process, it permanently penetrates into the fabric structure. As a result, it is resistant to multiple washing cycles, and undetectable to the touch. It perfectly reproduces multi-colour photographs and graphics.
We have conclude some main reasons of why sublimation printing technology is the most suitable method for polyester based textile printing.
But, this method is only suitable for printing on light-coloured polyester fabrics (on dark fabrics, only black colour can be applied)
