What is dye-sublimation.

Die-sublimation is a printing technique that transfers ink onto a polyester fabric.  Fist the design is printed on a special type of paper. After this is done, the paper is pressed on top of a sheet of raw fabric.  Through the application of heat and pressure the ink on the paper is turned into a vapor and transferred to the fabric.  Unlike other techniques like silk screening and vinyl pressing which leave the desired graphic on top of the fabric, sublimation actually embeds the die into the fabric. This process results in a permanent application of your design that will not ware off. By printing on to fabric this way an almost photographic image can be achieved.
