WHAT IS A VECTOR?

A vector file is constructed using mathematical formulas rather than individual colored blocks which can remain editable to adjust text or other graphic elements for print. The common vector file types are EPS, Al and PDF. By having your graphic in this format allows for more creative options for the designer to use such as full colour change, editing all elements and to be able to use the logo in the garment overall design then」ust a simple chest logo.

Ordering & Delivery

WHAT IS DYE SUBLIMATION?

Dye sublimation is a digital printing technology that enables the reproduction of colourful images on common everyday items, including clothing and novelties.

You create an image on your computer, print it onto special transfer paper using sublimation inks, and then apply the paper with the image onto the item to be decorated. Using a heat press, the transfer paper is pressed onto the surface at 240 degrees, which then causes the sublimation inks to “transfer” from the paper to any pol􀀂mer fibres within the substrate. After about a minute, the heat is removed and the transfer paper 1s peeled off, leaving behind a permanent full colour image on the substrate.

Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time. The high temperature – from a heat transfer press – opens the pores of the polymer and allows the gas to enter. When the temperature drops, the pores close and the gas reverts to a solid state. The print then becomes part of the polymer.

Hard items including ceramics and metals require a special coating to accept the sublimation inks. However, you do not need any coating on 100% polyester items such as mouse mats and 100% polyester fabric. We stock a wide range of sublimation printable fabrics.
