Banners & Signs Printing

The dye-sublimation printing process is used to print on polyester or other synthetic fabrics. It is used for applications such as T-shirts, banners, table covers, id cards, flags and other fabric based material. The original printers were an electrostatic technology using toners but now are generally large format inkjet printers using specially formulated inks. The dye sublimation inks are a pigment suspended in a liquid solvent, like water. The images are initially printed on coated heat-resistant transfer paper as a reverse image of the final design, which is then transferred onto polyester fabric in a heat press operating at a temperature around 385 F. Under high temperature and pressure, the dye turns into a gas and permeates the fabric and then solidifies into its fibers. The fabric is permanently dyed so it can be washed without damaging the quality of the image.

Digital sublimation printing transfers an image onto fabric based on the characteristic of dispersed dyes that can sublimate fewer than 150 to 230. Then, based on the designed image, it prints dispersed dyes to a special transfer paper. The transfer paper with the image then faces the fabric, and with the right temperature, pressure and time, the dye is transferred onto the fabric.

We have many Knits and Woven fabrics suitable for Banners, both Outdoor and Indoor locations.

 Digital sublimation has many advantages over direct inkjet printing, including:

 1. The printing time is significantly shortened. It used to take several days to create a design image, to create a sample, and to get the finished product ready for delivery, but digital sublimation only takes one to two hours to complete the entire design process.

2. Images can easily be customized to meet an individual client's request. This is where creativity comes into play, because customers have control over the design and colors!

3. An abundance of color and images is at your fingertips; you can choose from 16,700,000 different colors! You have the option to enhance images with a professional color palette to create very striking results.

There is no need to create a mesh screen with digital sublimation printing, which saves a lot of printing time. You can simply alter the design on the computer and make color selections with the click of a mouse. This also saves money on materials and labor! Digital sublimation is considered green printing because it significantly reduces pollution; it is done by computer, so it reduces both water and noise pollution associated with the old way of printing images onto textiles.

Digital sublimation printing does not work on natural fiber fabrics. It is only suited for synthetic materials and works best with Polyester or Nylon. This process does not work on Vinyl.
