Advantages of Dye-sublimation Over Other Methods of Textile Printing

Dye sublimation printing is a relatively superior – method of printing. It uses a breakthrough scientific method to produce higher quality images than other printing systems.
Traditional Printing Technique
Dye sublimation printing works by heating a special type of solid ink. This is different from other printing techniques, such as inkjet and laser printing, which spray liquid ink onto a page or surface, staining it. Instead, dye sublimation printing heats up the solid ink, causing it to turn into gas vapours. These vapours make their way into the target surface, where they then turn back into solid form.

Advantages of dye-sublimation over other methods of textile printing:
Images are permanent and do not peel or fade.
Dye does not build up on the fabric.
Colors can be extraordinarily brilliant due to the bonding of the dye to the transparent fibers of the synthetic fabric.
Truly continuous tones can be achieved that are equivalent to photographs, without the use special techniques such as half-screen printing.
The image can be printed all over the entire item, with no difficulty in printing all the way to the edges.

However, dye sublimation printing is a much more thorough technique. Instead of laying down the ink on the surface like a painter with a brush, it literally infuses the material, thanks to the ink’s application as a gas, instead of a liquid. The result? An image that is more naturally woven into the target material, and is less susceptible to becoming worn or deteriorated. And the dye-sublimation printed image and its dazzling colours will also be less likely to fade as time goes by than materials printed with other techniques.
