Printable Substrates And Materials By Dye Sublimation Printing
Do you know what substrates and fabrics can be printed by dye sublimation printing? Now I will make a brief introduction and hope will be helpful to you.
1.Any substrate or surface treated with polymer-based spray
Any product that has a polymeric base should be printable using dye sublimation. This would exdude nylon, cotton, wool, leather, wood, etc. These polymeric items must also withstand high heat,which will exclude a lot of plastics with the exception of reinforced plastics, such as fiberglass reinforced plastics.
The last exclusion would be anything of dark coloration, such as pre colored fabrics or other viable polymeric substrates. Bright or true white substrates work best for sublimation printing. Light colors are not forbidden, but you will lose 15-25% of your color gamut,depending on the color (light tans or grays or the like).
Having said that, there are white and/or clear polymer base coat products that can be sprayed or printed onto various substrates such as wood, leather, glass, and much more that will allow you to transfer a dye sublimated print to one or more of theseitems. Items that are now being dye sublimated after being treated with polymer base coatings include snowboards, skate boards , skis, mugs,mouse pads, glass, leather, wood products, metal, badges, awards using some of the above materials, signs, photographic plaques, and more.
2.Printable Fabrics suitable for dye sublimation printing.
Outdoor Banners with stands There are also many printable fabrics that can be printed using dye sublimation printing, but they don’t require the base coat spray as they’re already polymer-based, can withstand high heat, and are normally white in color.
3.Microfber style fabrics
Sublimation printing is also used for microfber style fabrics that can wick moisture away from the body, and the printing will not inhibit moisture wicking like all other printing will do on athletic or exercise clothing products.
Dye sublimated display as an advertising tool, the promotional products industry has embraced the high quality photographic process that dye sublimation afords.
Also, because of the photographic continuous tone printing that dye sublimation can create on polymer based fabrics, the graphics industry is turning more and more to dye sublimation for trade show graphics, retail banners and posters and other marketing related items because of the beautiful prints created using dye sub printing.
