Latest company news about What is sublimation?

Dye sublimation is a process of transferring ink to different types of clothing. Whether it's a T-shirt, hoodie or socks, you can use dye sublimation technology to transfer a custom design with special ink.

This process uses water-based dyes combined with polymers in the garment. But what does this mean? Basically, water-based sublimation inks have some special characteristics that enable them to permanently bond with different types of fabrics and garments.

So it transfers onto the garments?

This bonding is also not like one of those fragile heat transfer papers. No, this combination of ink and clothing is permanent. Once you print your design on the garment of your choice, it will always exist. This fact enables you to use custom designs to create truly unique and special garments. In addition, the process is affordable, and you can do it at home! All you need is some design, a printer that can handle special ink, and something that can be transferred.
