The sublimation technique is used to print directly on textile fibers and offers the great advantage of being very resistant to washing, keeping the colors bright and vivid.
The principle behind sublimation:
Images / patterns are printed on a paper basis (offset) which will be subsequently used to transfer those onto a textile basis.
The paper and the textile base are superimposed one upon the other and pressed by a hot cylinder (at about 210 ° C) for a certain period of time.
The applied pressure and the heat radiated by the cylinder transfer the printed ink onto the paper to the textile fibers and the end result is a solid and vibrant print on a previously simple piece of fabric or mesh.
