DYE SUBLIMATION PRINTING
Dye sublimation is used to print images on to fabrics and is the process of changing ink particles into gas,
which are heat transferred into the textile. The images are actually dyed into the fabric. The advantages of
dye sublimation are that textiles are very durable and can be laundered. Fabrics are generally lighter than
other printing media making them easier to transport and store. They also have a different look and feel from
paper or film based graphics.
Graphics are printed on high resolution machines outputting the finest photographic quality images – ideal for all types of exhibition, sales communication and marketing needs.
We can guide clients through the latest materials and fabric options best suited to individual projects. Our design background guarantees that the end result will be printing of the highest standard, all correctly finished for any of our displays. Accustomed to tight deadlines we can turn around most projects in 5 working days from receipt of artwork.
Artwork files can be sent to us by courier or special delivery on CDR or DVD. They can also be uploaded to our secure FTP server . Click here for FTP details.

To ensure our clients get the finest printed fabrics we only recommend materials that pass the strictest of tests.
We consider print quality and durability, ease of tailoring and finishing, whether the banner hangs straight with
no edge curl, and also whether it rolls up easily for transportation. Below are descriptions of materials ideally
