Quality Dye-Sub Ink

Dye Sublimation, or Dye-Sub, is a popular method of printing images and designs onto a wide range of substrates. It has gained it's popularity due to its ability to produce detailed, crisp digital prints onto surfaces which stand the test of time. Dye-Sub inks offer the benefit of being printable onto not only fabrics and textiles, but plastics, rubber, ceramics and many others.

How does Dye Sublimation work?

Using a wide-format inkjet printer, dye-sub inks are printed on a special transfer paper. From there, the ink is heat transferred from the paper onto a fabric by using a heat press. The ink changes from a solid to a gas (hence the term “sublimation”) and enters the polyester fibres. The transfer paper and the fabric being printed on are typically fed into a heated roller, which is where the sublimation process takes place.
