Dye Sublimation Printing For Fashion Garment Industry
Digital printing is replacing traditional methods in different branches of the graphics industry. There are multiple reasons for this shift but the main drivers are the cost-efficiency, possibility to personalize prints and the flexibility of these machines. Sublimation printing is a technique that uses heat sensitive inks. These inks turn into gas under the influence of heat and combine with a 100% polyester medium. Since the ink becomes part of the structure of the material, the images on the fabric don’t fade or crack, even after multiple washing.
What aspects customers should pay attention to?1. Printing environmentIf moisture presents in either the substrate or the transfer paper it can have an adverse effect on the sublimation process. Common problems include color shifting (where colors lose accuracy), bleeding of the image, and uneven transfer of solid filled areas of a design.The first step in minimizing the effects of humidity is to always store your transfer paper in a dry place.
If dealing with poly-performance apparel you can pre-press the shirt for about five seconds if you suspect there may be moisture in the fabric. For other substrates, you can “warm” them on the heat press without closing it.However, an environment that is too dry isn't any good either as it can cause print head nozzle loss issues. For best results, check the recommended ranges of humidity for your equipment, then purchase a hygrometer to measure your environment. If adjustments are needed, you can purchase either a humidifier or de-humidifer.
2. Good quality raw materials for sublimation printing If you want to good printing result, please use good quality raw materials, i mean good sublimation paper and sublimation ink.
