WHATS THE BENEFITS OF FABRIC SUBLIMATION PRINTING FOR OUTDOOR GRAPHICS PRINTING
Category : Blog
Sublimation printing is a form of digital printing, which is rapidly replacing old, traditional printing methods largely due to flexibility and cost efficiency.
Fabric sublimation printing commonly utilizes heat to transfer solid CMYO dyes to materials including synthetic fabrics, plastic, vinyl, and paper. Unlike CMYK printing that uses inks in the four standard colors – cyan, magenta, yellow, and black – CMYO dyes do not contain black. Instead, equal amounts of cyan, magenta, and yellow are combined to create “black”. Lighter than true black, the black color created in CMYO printing is lighter, less dense, and more like a dark gray or charcoal.
However, there are also dye sublimation printers that do print using CMYK and even CMYK plus four additional colors, orange and violet, as well as a light magenta (Lm) and light cyan (Lc). For these, ink is often used together with transfer paper. The transfer paper used for this form of high-quality fabric sublimation printing has a particularly high ink absorption. It releases the ink when it is heated, and the ink dries very quickly. Some don’t even use the transfer method. Instead, they print directly onto suitable material (especially coated fabrics) and then use heat to “set” the print or image.
The ink or dye used for fabric sublimation printing literally becomes part of the structure of the synthetic medium it is printed on, which is why it doesn’t scratch or fade. Because it is resistant to the elements, fabric sublimation printing is perfect for many outdoor custom business signs. This also ensures that signage is durable.
