Sublimation

About Sublimation

Sublimation is the most impressive and detailed way to customize your performance apparel, allowing for endless design possibilities. Designs can incorporate any colour or font that you can think of. Designs can go across seams, under arms, along waistbands – all while maintaining the wicking properties of your jersey as you go to work on the playing field.

How It Works

Sublimation is a process whereby ink is actually burned into the fibres of the garment, as opposed to the way ink is caked on top of the material in conventional silk screening. Your design is first printed on paper sheets, then applied to the garment using a heat press.

The technical benefits of sublimation are as impressive as the design capabilities. Once a design has been sublimated it will become part of the material. This means that the design will stretch with the fabric, it will allow sweat to wick through the design, and the image surface will not crack or fade over time or with repeated washing.

Artwork

Please make sure to create your artwork in CMYK colour mode, and avoid transparencies and gradients wherever possible. We cannot guarantee that the colours in these effects, or in large photographic images will turn out exactly as they appear on your screen.
