Dye Sublimation has dramatically increased in popularity in the last 5 years. Most of the new lines of t-shirts that are hitting the market from small start-up companies are being printed using the Dye Sublimation process. Wholesale Sublimation printing is a key component for these start-ups. Dye Sublimation involves using specialized opaque inks and heat to fuse high quality images or designs into fabric and other polyester substrates. Dye Sublimation will only work on 100% polyester fabrics or substrates, or a fabric or substrate with a high concentration of polyester. Cousins of polyester like Rayon, Nylon, Satin and Spandex also work well for Sublimation Printing.
When searching for Wholesale Sublimation partners, small start-up companies need to be careful of selecting the right partner.
When searching for the best Wholesale Sublimation partner to help launch your new line of t-shirts consider these things:
1. Will they create prototypes for you i.e. one of a kind to wear test and show off
2. Do they have low minimum orders 25 per run?
3. Can they provide fast turn around time within 2 weeks.
4. Will your Wholesale Sublimation partner collaborate with you?
5. Does your Wholesale Sublimation partner have patience and time to talk to you?
If you are launching a brand new t-shirt line, sublimation is a great option. Screen printing works well and looks great, but for small run launch, sublimation is going to enable you to get an amazing print product and keep your launch costs low.
