The Dye-Sublimation Method

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 the 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.

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 appliquéd nylon flags and banners.

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

Please note that we print on white polyester fabric with colorfast 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.
