What Are Dye-sublimation Printers Used For? You Really Learn It?


Dye sublimation printers are used mainly for making prints on polyester fabric. The fabric can be used for clothing or advertising media, such as teardrop banners, "L" banners, hanging banners, flag banners, trade show displays, backdrops, X Banners, roll up or pop up banners, retractable banners, etc., etc.

Dye Sublimation Printing is different from other types of printing in that it uses dyes rather than ink, like inkjet or laser jet printers do. Sublimation Inkjet printers use the CMYK color spectrum (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black), which is the print industry standard for most printing worldwide (RGB color spectrum is used for most video, in contrast).


The printing process uses the CMYO spectrum, where the "O" represents a clear overprint which becomes the black when exposed to heat and pressure.

When printing using the sublimation process, also known as heat transfer dye sublimation, first, the image is printed to a transfer paper using the CMYK ink set, then, once the sublimation paper is removed from the printer, it is matched up to a polyester fabric and place on a pressure rolling machine with heated rollers (around 400 ºF / 204 ºC) and slowly rolled between the rollers until it comes out the back side with a perfect image sublimated to the fabric.


The term "sublimation" has to do with the chemistry of the dye, which, when reacting to the heat and pressure of the heated rollers, becomes a gas and infuses itself permanently into the fabric. Thus, the term most commonly used for this type of printing, sublimation printing or dye sublimation printing.
