Dye Sublimation

Dye sublimation is a digital print method perfect for decorating polyester or polymer coated products. We use this method to print products like phone cases and mugs, but also textiles like tote bags and all-over t-shirts.

The print method uses a combination of heat, pressure and time to transfer dye to the product we're printing. And since it's a digital method we can use dye sublimation to achieve photo quality prints on your products.

Because heat and pressure are used the dyes cure within the textile fibres and the result is a near permanent, high resolution full colour print that feels as soft as the fabric itself! Pretty cool, right?

Just like with DTG, dye sublimation is ideal for on-demand drop shipping. Every single dye sublimation product is available with no minimum order quantities. But they can all be ordered in bulk, too. There are no limits!

For the highest quality print possible we recommend certain artwork specifi­­cations. You can find out everything you need to know in our Design File Guidelines article.
