What’s the significant considerations for dye sublimation printing?



Typically dye sublimation is used more now in trade show graphics because the look of the graphics are not as harsh as the old film type of substrates. Another benefit of dye sublimation printing is having lighter graphics for shipping which are less likely to crease, which can make a graphic unusable.

What are significant considerations for sublimation printers starting a business or seeking to add dye-sublimation paper printing to their production?


Dye sublimation inks there are many more variables to take into consideration when going into dye-sub printing as an existing printer, and it’s a ton of information to learn as a new person getting into this business.


For example, dye-sub adds the variable of heat to the printing process which can add stretch to many fabrics and definitely impacts print quality. We’ll be discussing flatbed and rotary heat presses, fabric options, transfer papers, dye-sub ink technologies and more.

What additional information does this workshop address for attendees?


In addition to attendees learning about the processes, we demonstrate color management in the dye-sub arena. This includes device calibration, and navigating an RIP workflow with spectrophotometers.


What tends to be the biggest challenges when it comes to color control in wide-format dye-sublimation printing? How will this training address those?  The dye-sublimation training the biggest challenge is all the variables that need to be controlled. As this training talks about all the different components — papers, fabrics, heat presses, printers, inks, etc.  We bring in experts in all these areas to address them, and the students learn how to manage those variables.
