If you’re looking for the top dye sublimation service in South Florida, look no further than American Seashore. 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, 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.
American Seashore provides the residents of South Florida with the leading digital dye sublimation printed textiles, fabrics, and merchandise. Dye sublimated fabrics are so durable because of this process. Apparel customized with graphics printed through dye sublimation can be washed many times, without fear of damaging the design. When dye sublimation is the printing process of choice, you can be assured that images won’t peel or fade away.
Most often, bright and colorful designs are used with dye-sublimation. The durability of the print, and its ability to not lose vibrancy after multiple washes, make bright colors and photo-realistic designs a possibility. Large designs also work great for dye sublimation because an image can be printed across the entirety of fabric with no issues in printing to the edge.
Often, American Seashore finds that dye sublimation is requested for sports jerseys or clothing of similar materials across South Florida. With all sports, dye sublimation is the jersey printing process of choice. It allows players to wear their sponsors’ logos in bright, long-wearing, crisp graphics. In addition to the richly-toned vibrant colors, players can be assured that designs and logos won’t fade, crack, or dull over time.
Additionally, dye sublimation printing is a great choice for business apparel, especially for companies based in sunny South Florida.
