Dye-sub printing is a digital printing technology using full color artwork that works with polyester and polymer-coated substrates. Also referred to as digital sublimation, the process is commonly used for decorating apparel, signs and banners, as well as novelty items such as cell phone covers, plaques, coffee mugs, and other items with sublimation-friendly surfaces. The process uses the science of sublimation, in which heat and pressure are applied to a solid, turning it into a gas through an endothermic reaction without passing through the liquid phase.
Dye sublimation has no minimum order quantities. The best use of this process would be:
- Polyester Clothing for "full colour" imaging
- Aluminum Water Bottles
- Mouse Pads
- Cellphone Cases
- And much, much more...
