Dye sublimation is a digital printing process that utilizes heat to transfer dye onto different kinds of materials. The process starts with ink that’s made of solid dye particles, suspended in liquid, which is usually water-based. Then, the ink is transferred over to another medium (most often, heat-resistant paper) printed in a reverse image. This is a heat resistant paper’s coating not only accepts the ink but allows it to be released in the next step of the dye sublimation process. In the next step, the heat press is used to transfer the image from paper onto fabric to create the finished product.

In most cases, Marco Island dye sublimation is used to print on polyester and other synthetic materials. This is due to the simple fact that these materials look the best, and yield the best results. Why it works best on these materials is because dye sublimation slightly melts polyester fabric, which allows the design to fuse well with the fabric. This creates a well-rounded and vibrant design. Dye Sublimation printed products and Marco Island are so durable because of this process. Dye-Sublimation products can be washed many times, without fear of damaging the design. Images won’t peel or fade when dye sublimation is the printing process of choice.
Most often, bright and colorful designs are used with dye-sublimation in Marco Island. The durability of the print, and its ability to not lose vibrancy after multiple washes makes bright colors and designs a great option. Large designs also work great for dye sublimation because an image can be printed across the entirety of a fabric with no issues in printing to the edges of the fabric.
Often, American Seashore finds that dye sublimation is requested for sports jerseys or clothing of a similar material. Across all sports, dye sublimation is the jersey printing process of choice.
