What is sublimation printing? - Sportsqvest

The way Sportsqvest can print such awesome designs on jerseys is due to a process referred to sublimation printing. Sublimation printing allows you to let you imagination run wild. If it can be designed, it can be printed. It the process of tying the dye to a fabric using heat transfer technology.

This process is where a substance moves from a solid to a gas state without being in liquid form. A digital printer produces mirrored images on paper that has been specially coated with a transfer material to protect the ink from UV rays and also keeps it water resistant. Sublimation printing is usually done for the sportswear and activewear segment using polyester materials but there are other applications for this too. Eventually the result is where the colours stand out to give you a deep and rich feel on your garments.
