What is Dye-Sublimation?

Dye-sublimation is a printing technology which dyes polyester fabric by releasing heat-activated gases which bond with the fibers, resulting in a brilliant finish with photographic quality which is also weather resistant and washer safe.

How is it accomplished?

The actual process involves printing a digital file on special paper, using our large format Roland printers, and then heat-pressing the images to fabric using a large format rotary heat press.

What is the result?

The end result is remarkable!  Brilliant full-process color at 720 to 1400 dpi, from simple to highly complex designs, printed on several standard polyester fabrics or other specialty fabrics.

Features of this Method

  • Full Process Color or Spot Color
  • Unlimited Number of Colors
  • Dye-Sublimation Ink for Color Brilliance
  • Rotary and Flat-Bed Heat Transfer Machines for Quality Dyeing
  • Beautiful Photographic Quality
  • Several Quality Banner Polyester Cloths Available
  • Indoor Use or Outdoor Use, Standard Ink or XL Outdoor Ink
  • Single-Side, Single-Reverse, Double-Construction

Design IDEA!

Dye-Sublimation Polyester printed flags and banners are priced by square feet, percentage of coverage, whether single-side, single-reverse, or double-side.

 A dye-sub print is a digital print using special dye-sublimation inks for outstanding color.

Dye-sub prints may also be used in combination with sewn and appliquιd nylon flags and banners.

For banners larger than standard sizes, we can print multi-panel configurations, in perfect register, seamed together.

Please Note

We print on white polyester fabric
dye sublimation ink, therefore adding color to a white fabric.

In terms of pricing, in most cases, this means that it is less expensive to print 50% coverage than 100% coverage.  When we evaluate your digital art, we will take this into consideration.

We suggest that you consult our section on Preparing Artwork & Files to see our requirements for submission of digital files.
