Sublimation printing is a method of printing images on a substrate, usually paper or cloth. It is named such due to the early belief that the dyes would transfer directly from the solid state to gaseous. This has been found to be false and there is some liquefying of the dye but the name has caught on. Sublimation printing has now grown to become one of the most popular means of printing on fabric; this is due to the fact that there is virtually no image quality loss in the process. The result is shown in an image with brilliant quality and vivid colors. This sort of quality printing holds up against even the most critical standards.
The Benefits of Sublimation Printing:
The special thing about this method is its environmental friendly traits which have made it popular. We live in a world which is now greatly shifting towards the ideology of preserving the earth and its resources. And in a world like this, the method that produces no harmful waste is valued. Sublimation printing does not require water for the dyeing process and virtually produces no waste at all. Only a small amount of dye is consumed during printing. Also, the dyes used are not toxic, they are safe for the workers and for the environment. So it is safe to say there is no other method in the textile industry that is as safe as sublimation printing. This gives a huge jump to this printing method against traditional printing methods.
You may be wondering what’s the process for sublimation printing. It involves imprinting a specified image on various items, such as paper or fabric. Leaving out the complexities of the reaction, the process turns the solid dye into a gaseous state and solidifies it again on the material. This produces a long-lasting imprint that can withstand harsh conditions. This is done via a machine that creates a chemical reaction through the transfer of heat. The only downside of this is that it is restricted to fusing designs on synthetic fabrics only, such as polyester. This means printing on fabrics like cotton is out of the question.
