How Dye Sublimation Printing Works
First, it helps to understand how dye sub printing works.
In printing processes like laser and inkjet printing, liquid ink is applied to the surface of the material being printed. But dye sublimation printing uses a unique process where specially formulated ink is heated so that it converts to a gas and penetrates the surface of the substrate being printed on, such as fabric. Then it turns back to solid form as it cools.
So rather than being on the surface of substrate, the dye sub ink has become part of the material. And that provides several benefits for you.
