As a result is starting to see a sea of highly creative and innovative printed textiles sweeping across the nation, with examples ranging from tear-drop type flags outside petrol stations, through to advertising hoardings at major sporting events. The attractions of dye sub printed textiles are manifold. The material is easy to handle, it’s reusable, it offers stunning print quality and vivid colours that really stand out from the crowd, plus because it can be folded into a small footprint it’s cheap to transport.

Although the majority of people entering this market are printers who were traditionally producing textiles on screen printing presses or wide-format solvent printers, we’re also starting to see examples of companies created specifically to tap into this rapidly growing niche market with sublimation printing.

For Digital Sublimation Printing: Which Fabric is Suitable?

Digital sublimation printing often referred to sublimation printing too, which is a modern way of printing artworks onto special garments to make them look attractive or pass a particular message. However, do you know what fabrics can you print ?

The answer is you do need at least 60% polyester fabric to make sublimation. It is better to use 100% polyester. The reason is you will attain a superior print if 100% of the fabric accepts the dye when it enters gas form and is inducted into the open polymer pores.

Do you know why polyester fabric is the best product for dye sublimation? Because in one part of the process, the temperature of large format heat press machine must be in excess of 370º F (190ºC) to cause the dye to be converted into a gaseous form, and also to cause the polymer’s cells to open as they expand to accept the now gaseous dye into the cells. And without the cellular construction of the polyester fabric and it’s polymeric qualities, it would not be possible to print using digital sublimation printing. So, the more polymers, the better.

As we all known, there are two types of sublimation paper for printing, fast dry sublimation transfer and sticky dye sublimation paper. Fast dry sublimation paper can be applied to polyester, nylon, and other fabrics, Sticky paper can be used for Lycra, spandex and other elastic fabrics.

Note: Sublimation Printing can not be used for 100% cotton fabric. Because cotton fabric can not withstand high temperatures, but you can use T-shirt transfer paper. 🙂
