Epic Professional Printing and Promotional Materials in Visalia will handle all your dye sublimation needs from start to finish. We offer two main types of dye sublimation printing. We can sublimate your t-shirts, leggings, yoga pants, hoodies, sweaters, tank tops and more as pre-sewn finished garments. The second method is to do sublimation printing on cut panels that can later be sewn together.
‘Dye-sub’ is a printing technique that allows for full color, all-over apparel prints. Your artwork is printed onto a sheet of high-release paper and transferred onto your apparel using heat and pressure. Heat converts the solid dye particles into a gas (sublimation) and bonds them to the polyester fibers. 100% polyester garments are required for optimal vibrancy. 50% polyester/50% cotton blends are good for achieving a vintage/worn effect. This process requires white or very light colored garments, since any colored background drastically alters the imprint colors. Since sublimation will become part of the shirt, any color already on the garment will overwhelm the transferred image.
