What is sublimation printing?
Everything you wanted to know about sublimation printing
At Eitan’s Print Shop you can do advanced sublimation printing on white shirts, using A4 paper size. This is a very strong print that lasts for very long periods of time. The advantage is that the print is not noticeable on the fabric and therefore feels like you’re wearing a perfectly smooth shirt.
With a sublimation printer in our store you can print a wide variety of prints in a variety of colors, examples, texts and pictures. For example, you can print funny and cool shirts, shirts for different educational institutions, military units, wedding shirts, travel and special occasions, and so on. As mentioned, the common denominator for all these prints is the method of sublimation that is immediately described in detail. This method has two main advantages:
- Print’s lifespan – It is important to note that all prints we make on shirts, hats or any other product or fabric are of the highest quality and long-lasting. At the same time, even the highest quality print may fade over time due to the natural wear and tear of the colors, sun exposure, laundry, temperature changes, and the like. The solution for this is to provide a sublimation print with which the life of the print becomes longer compared to other printing methods, so you can enjoy without worrying about a printed shirt that stays with you for a long time.
- Smooth print that you don’t even feel – Most people have no problem wearing printed shirts, even if they feel the print, for example, on a school t-shirt for the annual trip, for the army, for a birthday and so on. On the other hand, there are people who do not like the feeling of friction over time, and for them a true uncompromising quality is a print that is not felt at all. A sublimation printer provides the ultimate solution for them, as they do not feel the print without compromising its beauty, color and quality.
First, it is important to emphasize that printing using the sublimation technique has been used for many years for a variety of purposes. In recent decades there have been significant developments in the printing industry in general, and particularly in the field of sublimation printers, this technique can be carried out with advanced yet simple printers that can be used in select stores. The printing process begins by choosing the print image and content, whether it comes from our rich repository of ideas, or your own computer file that you have forwarded to us. We then enter the contents of the file into a dedicated inkjet printer which already has special colors for sublimation printing, with which we print the sample on special paper. We attach the paper to the white shirts (as mentioned in paper size A3), and then the colors connect to the shirt fabric.
This means that in the process the colors actually become part of the shirt, embedded within the fabric, rather than colors found on the fabric as is the case with silk or regular digital prints. Therefore, the color-fade and wear process is much slower. Also, one can’t feel the print on the shirt at all, as it is simply inside the fabric itself. All of this is done at a very high print quality, and can be used with various captions and graphic elements up to detailed photography.
Besides sublimation printing, there are a number of methods by which to print on shirts and each has its own unique characteristics. The two most common methods today are silk-screen printing and standard digital printing. In silk-screen printing, a common and old-fashioned printing method, the glove is used for a large number of printed shirts that contain the same content, which saves costs when printing in bulk so the entire order would be at a particularly lucrative price. At the same time, it should be noted that the silk screen printing method has a limit to one color in printing and those who want to add more colors will have to add in cost accordingly.
