One of the most creative, innovative and
superior means of printing today is sublimation printing. Sublimation printing
uses a cutting edge scientific method to delivery extremely crisp images when
compared to other printing methods. It
can be applied to garments, including sports shirts, jerseys and
singlets, custom t-shirts, pants, jackets, hoodies and tracksuits, school
uniforms, and much more.
It is up to our clients to get creative and
come up with a concept of their design. After then, our clients can choose how
to work with us to best bring their custom design to print life!
Option 1. Complete artwork is supplied to us in a High
Res Vector File. Once approved and signed off, we then get to work on printing
the artwork on pre-selected garments from the online Design Lab.
Option 2. For a fee, our Graphic Design team can create
a unique design based on our client’s creative concept. As per first step, once the artwork is
approved and signed off, we then get to work on printing the artwork on
pre-selected garments from the online Design Lab.
Option 3. If our clients have difficulty coming up with
a design concept on their own, we will guide them through the online design
process to select the right ‘Category’ (i.e. netball uniforms), ‘Type’ (i.e.
singlets, dresses or skorts), and ‘Garment’ (i.e. Swirl dress or Flash dress), that best suits
their design needs. Once we receive signed approval, the printing process

after signed artwork approval.
gives you the power of full customisation!
the major benefits of sublimation printing is that no plates are required. No
permanent materials need to be created in this process. Because of this, our
clients have the ultimate level of customisation, which can all be done
Sublimation printing is
very different from our other printing options. The process uses a solid ink
instead of the liquid ink used in ink-jet or laser printing. The solid ink is
heated and imprinted on the desired product. The solid ink is turned directly
from a solid into gaseous vapors, which work their way onto the item. This
means the entire image is transferred as is, instead of being reduced to tiny
dots that are then printed onto the product.
Sublimation printing is also better for the
environment. Other methods of printing involve a liquid stage. This requires a
much more significant amount of water when compared with sublimation printing,
which uses very little. Sublimation printing produces very little waste in
comparison to other methods. Because of sublimation printing’s unique method of
using solid ink, the amount of ink used is much less than that used in other
methods. Overall, the waste produced and materials used are minimal when
compared with other popular printing methods.
