The breakthrough of sublimation digital printing

Dye-sublimation printing is completed using a large format inkjet printer with a special type of ink that consists of pigment and a solvent (water for instance). This ink is then used to print a reverse image of the intended design onto coated heat-resistant transfer paper. When the transfer paper is put into a heat press at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, the dye turns into a gas and permanently dyes the fabric or textile at hand with a high definition image or pattern.

Dye sublimation printing is a printing method that produces extremely high quality images that can be created on synthetic textiles such as polyester and nylon, opening up a whole new world of possibilities when it comes to putting images on objects such as banners, flags and even clothing. What’s more, the dye sublimation printing process can even place images on blended fibers, which involve different fiber types combined together.

Dye Sublimation Printing Process
It accomplishes this by using a technical printing technique that is quite different from traditional inkjet or laser printing. Instead, dye sublimation printing doesn’t make images by printing using individual dots – dots that when viewed up close can be easily distinguished by the spaces in between them.
A dye sublimation printer contains a roll of transparent film. To the human eye, this roll looks like sheets of multiple colors (red, blue, grey and blue) of cellophane that are all stuck together. Hidden within these film sheets are solid dyes. These dyes match the CMYK colors that make up the basic color building blocks in printing (cyan, magenta, yellow and black).
The way these dyes make it onto the target surface also requires a bit of description, as it’s quite different from the printing methods many are used to. As the print head makes its way across the film, it heats up. This heat makes the dyes contained in the film vaporize. The vapors then permeate the target surface (such as glossy paper or polyester). When they do this, they once again take on a solid form. The result, then, is a beautiful high-quality printed image that is simply unmatched when compared to inkjet or laser printing methods.
And when compared to those other printing techniques, dye sublimation solution has many benefits. Chief among these, as mentioned, is the superior image quality. Dye sublimated images are also more thoroughly printed into the target material, as opposed to being printed on top. This means they’re longer lasting and more resistance to being torn or otherwise worn out. Plus, the ability to place images on synthetic materials means there are a whole host of new ways to adorn objects with vibrant, colorful images.
