Ranging from a few, once-off orders to recurring mass production orders this company takes pride in delivering an exceptional and leading service to generate the high-quality goods that will satisfy their clients and make sure that they get repeat business.
In today’s episode you will learn how to do sublimation printing with the FastCOLOUR large format printer together with the Heatware roller heat press machine from Advanced Machinery to print bright and bold designs on fabric.

Dye-sublimation printing is the best digital printing technology used to print on man-made fabric.
The procedure makes use of heat and pressure to turn a substance from a solid-state to a gas state without advancing to the liquid phase. What comes first is the printing of the design on a thermal transfer vinyl paper.
Next the vinyl paper is fed through a high-pressure roller heat-press that is responsible for successfully converting the ink on the paper into a gaseous state. The polymer molecules of the man-made fabric dissolve when they are exposed to heat.
The ink that changed into gaseous state is shifted onto the fabric which then loosens as soon as it is fused with the ink.
