The dye sublimation printing process involves the use of a special dye ink that sublimates when it is introduced to high temperatures. This ink is first printed onto a transfer paper via a digital printer and then this printed image is transferred onto a polyester garment using heat and pressure. The ink reacts to the heat by “sublimating” in that it changes from a solid state into a gas state (thereby skipping the liquid state entirely). The dye then bonds with the polyester fabric to create a vivid, textureless, and permanent digital print.
This process not only yields vivid print colors that are washfast and durable but it also allows you to print photographic or color-complex graphics accurately.
Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action during the squeegee stroke. Basically, it is the process of using a stencil to apply ink onto another material.
