Dye Sublimation Apparel


Dye sublimation is a unique printing method that allows you to print any design utilizing digital printing. Your graphics or images are transferred from transfer paper to your apparel fabric with a roll to roll thermal transfer machine at temperatures hitting 400° F. While the fabric is heated under this high temperature and pressure, the dyes turn into gases which permeate and solidify into the fabric saturating 95% of fibers.

The end result is that the dyes are actually absorbed into the fabric, not just printed on the top of it, so you get a depth and richness to your images that aren’t possible through other printing methods. This produces high resolution graphics at crisp photo quality from sleeve to sleeve, neck to hem. Our fabrics are durable, comfortable and will not fade or shrink.


All of our apparel is sewn together, piece-by-piece. This means NO transfer lines or white gaps in your clothing where the seams meet.

So you are free to create truly customized designs perfect for corporate apparel, destination apparel, POP WEAR (walking billboards), promotional events, Fundraisers and so on—only your imagination will limit your design.

Fabric options include:

  • 3.6oz Poly Interlock
  • 3.7oz Poly Swiss Pique
  • 4.0 Flatback Mesh
  • 5.25oz Poly/Spandex
