When sublimation dye is placed next to polyester and heated, the polyester molecules open. The sublimation dye turns into a gas and then penetrates the fibers of the fabric when heated. After the heat is removed, the polyester molecules will close and permanently trap the sublimation dyes. The image gets indelibly transferred to the polyester garment. When the fabric cools the fibers close and permanently retain the brilliant color of the sublimation dye.

Dye sublimation paper is permanent and becomes part of the fabric. It makes a t-shirt or jersey a light weight, breathable feel and rich, long lasting, brilliant full color. We GUARANTEE that it won’t ever crack or peel.
One important note is that dye sublimation does have limitations in that it only works with light colored shirts and can not be used for designs that require white printing. 
Dye-sublimation printing, or transfer printing can be used to apply designs to polyester fabric, and to a wide range of substrates which have been treated with a dye-absorbing polymer.  Since the ink dissolves deeply into the polymer, the design is wash-proof, and durable.  For more information, see the process below.

At the present time, we do not do dye sublimation printing on t-shirtsor other garments.  Instead, we steer our garment customers toward screen printing for large orders or toward directtogarment printing for small orders, or complex, multi-color designs. We still do dye sublimation printing of large items, like table cloths and fabric banners.
