The use of a heat transfer press for sublimation printing of polyester and other fabrics with “sublimation” dyes is a technology that has been in use for over 30 years. The process is environmentally clean and the vibrant colors and clear images give the process many advantages.
New textile technologies produce polyester fabrics that look and feel like cotton, rayon, and even silks. Also, new technology has produced polyester fabrics for athletic wear that are warmer/cooler than traditional cotton.
New digital technology has been introduced in recent years which allow a design to be created and printed onto a special transfer paper, and then transferred onto the fabric using a heat press. The entire process can be completed within a matter of hours. Samples and short run production can now be printed, sewn and shipped within days instead of weeks.
A process of printing synthetic fabrics and other substrates using special, “subliming” dies which turn from a solid into a gas at a specified time, temperature and pressure. Under pressure these dyes in gas form are absorbed and encapsulated with pinpoint accuracy into the substrate. The gas returns to solid form once encapsulated. The result is a permanent print which will not wear off and is washable and with withstand dry-cleaning.
