What is Sublimation?
Do you know what sublimation is? The Wave knows and is the leader in custom sublimated sports uniforms. Sublimation is also known as dye-sub or dye sublimation printing. Sublimation is a type of printing process that utilizes heat to transfer dye into fabrics. The choice of sublimated uniforms provides the best quality printing, because the inks are fused into the fabric as opposed to sitting on top of the baric as in inkjet or screen printing. These inks can be seen, but not felt on the fabric. There are several steps in the dye sublimation process. The dye sublimation process starts with the computer where the unique graphics are designed. The graphics are then fitted to each piece of the pattern including the front, the back, the sleeves and the collar and imprinted with any design of your choice. Once the design is complete, the patterns of the garment are printed on a digital computer. Next, the formulated sublimated inks are jetted onto specially coated paper. The paper and the white polyester fabric are combined then pressurized and heated together. During this stage the dye-sub ink transfers from the solid to gas skipping the liquid state, hence the term sublimation. The gas dyes the design into the fabric which becomes permanent. Then the dyed pattern pieces are cut and finally sewn together. The finished product is a beautiful full color design. There are many benefits of sublimated sports uniforms. This permanent graphic imprint will never crack, fade or peel. These high quality uniforms are durable and will last forever. Sublimated uniforms have a unique design, show incredible detail and have bold vibrant colors.
