Present-day innovations in sublimation printing have made it simple for textile printing to enter the arena of computerized clothing printing. The sublimation printing method uses heat transfer to create personalized items. It’s a great way to get high-quality images printed on fabric in a way where there’s virtually no loss of resolution. The resulting print can withstand fade, crack, and peel.
Sublimation technology’s ability to deliver longevity and freedom of design choice is the reason why most people turn to dye-sublimation to establish rewarding and profitable businesses.
Additionally, studies dealing with the effectiveness of dye-sublimation printing on garments concluded that the printed fabrics showed high abrasion resistance, pilling resistance, and color-fastness.
Sublimation printing requires the following elements:
- Dye sublimation printer
- Sublimation ink
- Dye sublimation heat transfer paper
- Heat transfer machine
Heat transfer machines have been used for over 30 years for color sublimation printing of various polymer items.
Experts believe that heat transfer is the perfect medium for today’s marketplace and sample production, as it’s easy-to-use, efficient, and most importantly, eco-friendly and sustainable. Plus, the colors are easy to reproduce and don’t require any post-treatment.
Personalizing With Sublimation Printing
The best part about heat press sublimation is that you can personalize and customize almost all kinds of items. In fact, if you’re looking to establish your own craft business or are simply passionate about customizing everyday items, then a sublimation printer should be on your radar! You can later sell these personalized items on any online platform and make a profitable business.
Here are some examples of some of the many items that you can customize:
- Ceramic mugs
- Pillow cases
- Key chains and photo ornaments
- Wrapping paper
- T-shirts, of course
The Best Uses of Sublimation Printing
Compared to other printing methods that simply layer the print onto the fabric, sublimation printing infuses the ink into the garment, ensuring the print has a long life-span.
Sublimation printing works best with patterns, photographs, and abstract designs to produce glossy and vivid colors. It’s ideal for hard surfaces that have a poly-coating, such as coasters, mouse pads, cups, etc. It also works incredibly well with light colored or white polyester apparel.
Sublimation printing is also a more cost-effective option since it facilitates exhaust printing. This means that the same sublimation print can be used several times on more than one fabric. Although there will be reduced intensity in the subsequent prints, it can work on many pieces and ends up creating a unique effect.
