On some occasions we are asked, "If I want to customize complete t-shirts or customize fabrics to create my own designs, what is the process like?" Here we will talk about this technique in large formats.
The first thing we must be clear about is the supports that we can customize, remember that sublimation allows us to customize synthetic fibers , or a combination of synthetic and natural fibers. Among them we have: Acetate, Acrocel, Arciel, Black Out, Bondeado, Chenille, Cordura, Friezed Sportswear, Dry Fit, Invisible Frieze, Polyester Gabardine, Gauze, Jersey Set, Ketten, Frisado Ketten, Lycra, Microfiber, Stretch Microfiber, Micropiqué , Modal, Neoprene, Panama, Polyamide, Ribtop, Satin, Cold Silk, Polyester Set, Siré, Spun, Taffeta, Aircraft Fabric, Terry Cloth, Tricot, Mechanical Tropical, Tulle .
Well, now it is important that you take into account that this sublimation process will allow us to work on different projects, which previously, as teams, we were limited. Here is a list of some:
For the application of sublimation in large format , what we must do is use a large printer, from 44" to 64", to print our designs, some models are:
- Epson F6200
- Epson F7200
- Roland Text Art RT640
And then we will proceed to print the designs on our fabrics, in this part it depends on the equipment you have, one option is calenders , which have rollers that heat where the image is passed and proceeds to print on the fabric, another option is large size sublimation plates , that is, 24"x32", which allow unarmed fabrics to be sublimated.
Why should we choose this process over others?
- Lower production cost
- Higher quality in the result
- Image quality
- Save ink due to precision
- High productions
