The Fabric

Dye sublimation is a process that combines heat, pressure and time to process the inks into your fabric, resulting in fabric which withstands the test of time. Unlike screen printing, your fabric will never fade, peel or crack. For the best results, you’ll need a light colored, poly-blend fabric so that the bond between the ink and fabric can occur.  The more poly that is in your fabric, the more vibrant the color results.

Choose from one of our many poly-blend combinations or provide your own poly-blend fabric. To see our preferred fabrics, click here

Printing

After we receive your design and fabric selection, we go to print. The fabric and design are sent through a large dye-sub machine where the magic happens and creates the fabric you never thought could be real! Quality control then carefully reviews the finished product. After confirming your project is perfect, we package it for pickup or delivery anywhere in the USA!

Stand out from the crowd! Owning quality, custom fabric has never been so easy.

Dye Sublimation FAQ

  • Sublimation is the process of a substance changing through the solid state of matter into the gas state of matter, without first becoming liquid. This benefits you, and your design, because their isn’t the possibility of your design running. Also, ink is able to settle into fabric much faster than the screen printing process which requires a liquid to dry. 

  • Since dyes are being put into the fabric, rather than onto the fabric, it does require the dye to work against any dye that may already be in the garment. It is best to begin with a material that is completely white and freshly introduce the colors into the material. 

    White ink does not exist for dye sublimation. 

    Textures and fabric patterns can also be dyed into the fabric, just check out our heather shirt we created from scratch! Giving a shirt that blended appearance is easily knocked out. 

  • We can send samples! There is a small cost associated as we try to provide the best example and material for your project. Preferably, we are more than happy to have clients schedule a time to come to our office to be shown the different material options first hand and take a few samples home with them. We specialize in educating our clients on our materials so it isn’t just the look they desire, but it will also last in the situation it will be living in. 

    Providing a consultation on your project will help us accomplish the right look and the best wear for the tear material. 

  • No! With digital printing you can choose as many or as few colors as you’d like, and the price is the same and the world is your oyster. The only limitation is their currently is not a white dye for dye sublimation, creating a challenge for printing on dark materials. 

    It is best to start with a lighter material (white is ideal) and add the dark colors to the lighter shirt. 

  • Once we have approval on your product, we will get it into production as soon as possible. A typical turnaround can be 7-10 business days as we work you in with our current projects. Rushes can be accommodated with fees. 

  • Yes, however we ask that you let us do a test print first. The blend of the materials and how high the polyester ratio affect the brightness of colors. Moreover, the way the material was treated before it comes to us or you may affect how the dyes set into it. We strive to send you the best possible quality product and ensure you walk away with exactly what you expected. 

  • We currently do not. For decades there has been an unfulfilled need for high-quality, durable, American made products without limitations. Dye sublimation allows the the opportunity to fill this void, therefore it is our mission to make this processing accessible to start-ups and corporations alike.
