WHAT IS SUBLIMATION?
Dye Sublimation is a process of printing fabric that provides the best quality, and most durable printing option for complex designs.
Inks are fused into the fabric as opposed to sitting on top of the fabric such as in DTG or screen printing. The process not only gives fabrics a softer touch after the printing, but it is also very durable. The colour remains strong in outdoor lighting and after extensive washing, so it’s the ideal process for sportswear and school clothing.
Another major benefit of Dye Sublimation is the design process. There are next to no limitations when it comes to what you want printed, all you need is vector artwork, PMS colours and our visual experts can help you bring you or your customers imagination to a reality.
THE PREMSUB PROCESS
VISUALS Make contact with us to begin the visual process. We will help with all your graphic needs from start to finish. Can be as simple as sending us an image of the design your customer likes, and we will build this in the required format. We request all logos be supplied to us in Vector format, we can offer a redraw service which will be charged accordingly to you. Once the visual is completed, an email with links will be provided for you to view and approve. Any changes to the design will be made at this stage.
JOB SHEET After your customer has approved the visual/s, all we will then request quantities and sizes to transfer onto our job sheet. This is the final part of the design process before you order goes into production. We ask that job sheets are checked thoroughly that you check size chart/s, colour references, quantities, and sizes match to what we were supplied. We will use the approved proof for manufacturing purposes.
PRODUCTION As soon as job sheet/s obtain approval, this is then sent to our factory to start production. Lead times can vary so please ask prior to job sheet approval if you are trying to meet a tight deadline and we will do our best to accommodate you.
