In order to transfer the image from the paper to the garment, it requires a heat press process that is a combination of time, temperate and pressure. To be able to do sublimation printing you will need polyester mix garments to sublimate to. You can also sublimate onto a number of products and accessories including bags and caps.
The end result of the sublimation process is a high resolution, full colour print. Because the dyes are infused into the substrate at the molecular level, rather than applied at a topical level (such as with screen printing and direct to garment printing), the prints will not crack, fade or peel from the garment under normal conditions. Sublimation is best suited to light coloured garments.
It is the preferred way to decorate a shirt with a logo by many companies. Because thread has dimension, an embroidered logo ends up being three dimensional. In addition, embroidery thread is coated and therefore has a sheen that helps the colours pop to attention.
Logo embroidery is used most often for apparel that will be used for uniforms or promotions. Please note that if it is your first time using our embroidery service there may be a small set up cost of £10.
