Color to Dye For: The Benefits of Dye Sublimation Printing
Dye sublimation is a groundbreaking print method that combines high amounts of heat and pressure to permanently bind full-color images (on a molecular level!) to soft fabrics. One of the main dye sublimation benefits is that professional printers can use a variety of materials to create colorful and eye-catching graphics. Printing on vinyl, wovens, and linens can be trickier for other printing processes, but dye sublimation printing handles it with ease. The ink used permeates the material itself so there is less of a chance of damage or fading. Instead, the final result will be a solid and uninterrupted amount of color across the material throughout its lifetime.
DYE SUBLIMATION BENEFITS THAT PEOPLE CAN’T STOP TALKING ABOUT
- Long-Lasting: These graphics’ longer lifespan is achieved by the chemical bonding of the ink with the targeted material. Since the ink bonds with the material, the final results are durable and can be easily, and repeatedly, washed or steamed on a regular basis.
- Superior Image Quality: Since dye sublimation printing delivers a continual color flow (as opposed to individual dots or pixels), your images are cleaner, crisper, and more vibrant. Whether the colors are viewed from a distance or from a close range, they remain bright and clear thanks to the depth of the colors and their sharply defined edges.
- Cost-Effective: Dye sub printed fabric normally weighs less than other traditional materials. The lighter material reduces the shipping costs, making it a more cost-effective printing option.
- Efficient Storage: Fabrics are flexible and much lighter in weight than rigid substrates and this allows for efficient storage while still maintaining the integrity of the artwork. Ideal for seasonal displays, dye sublimation pieces can often be repurposed for additional use in the future because they store so easily.
