Our printing processes explained. Mystified by all the jargon?We sort the transfers from the transflex and clear away the smoke-screen around screen printing.
Dye-sublimation is a process that uses heat to transfer dye onto materials such as ceramics, plastics and synthetic fabrics like polyester. When heat is applied the dye becomes a gas and is then allowed to permeate the surface of the product, before returning to a solid form. The dye is now infused with the product's surface and is therefor less vulnerable to fading and distortion over time.
Heat Transfer Paper
There are many form of heat transfer paper out here, but most are commonly used to apply graphics to textile and clothing. In most cases, anywhere that the image requires white, the garment's existing colour shows through. The mirror of the image is printed on the paper, and when it is printed face-down on the garment, the result is the original.
