Silkscreen Printing is a method that involves printing ink through stencils that are supported by a porous fabric mesh stretched across a frame called a screen. Silkscreen Printing requires quite a bit of pre-work, with the artwork requiring separation for each ink color to be used, threading of the garments onto palettes, and ultimately a person or machine pulling ink across the screen to lay the ink colors on to the garment. Silkscreen printing is not suitable for small quantity orders because of the setup and labor involved.
Full Dye Sublimation allows you to print in vibrant pigments onto wide format polyester fabrics that are then pressed with a wide format heat press, turning the inks into a gas that permeates the fabric and then solidifies into its fibers. The fabric is permanently dyed so it can be washed without damaging the quality of the image. The garment components are then cut & sewed together to create your 1 of a kind jersey. Because the fabrics are dyed with your image prior to cutting, you can achieve an all over seam to seam design.
Spot Dye Sublimation is utilized when you have an existing white polyester garment that you would like to infuse with a vibrant design that does not require a seam to seam design. You can still achieve vibrant, sharp designs without the cost and time required for full dye products.
