Face Mask

If in 2019, you had said that face masks were going to be a fashion statement in a year, you probably would have been called crazy or would have been stared at like you had a third eye. But here we are in 2021, and times are a little different. With the current climate, if you are going out in public, most retail establishments require a face mask. The disposable blue masks are just boring and no way to represent your individuality. You want to stand out, be yourself, and of course, be fashionable. Your customers are asking for customized masks for a school organization or something for them to make people smile during these challenging times.

5 Dye Sublimation Printing Benefits in 2020

1. Full Color and High Print Quality

The key benefit of all the benefits of dye sublimation printing for the future is the ability to use any color with high-quality resolution. The ink jet printer prints the image transferred, this allows the use of every color in the color spectrum, except white. This includes any type of complex gradients, images and photos, or a combination of all. Using a white solid surface solves the problem of not being able to print white. Wherever the ink is not printed, the surface color of the material will show through. As a result you can print any image with the same high resolution of 150 to 300 DPI+ that can be printed on a home or office ink jet printer.

2. Durability of Print

As mentioned previously the unique process of sublimated printing makes the image one with its substrate or printing surface. This means no cracking, fading or deterioration of the image will occur once it is set into the product. For apparel, this means no worries of print fade after laundering. For non-apparel items you do not need to worry that certain cleaners will erode image durability. If the base material itself can withstand the cleaning agent or environment your print will maintain its original look.

3. Versatility

As this process grows in popularity more and more types of materials can be printed. From custom one- off flip flops, uniforms and socks to large outdoor signage and home decor items, dye sublimation has almost unlimited potential. Here are some items that are now widely used in this industry:

  • Rigid Substrates – Polymer treated, non-fabric items like glass, plastic, fiberglass, ceramics, and aluminum. These are products that aren’t bendable like fabrics.
  • Signage – Easily print on vinyl banners, table cloths and other trade show displays. If you see signs hanging in front of shops or buildings, there’s a good chance that sublimation printing was used.
  • Polyester Fabrics – One of the most popular items to dye sublimate. They are divided into two types: Knit: Polyester products that hang & flow in their natural environment, like apparel, flags, banners, and custom printed table covers. Woven: More durable products such as fabric backdrops and custom tents
  • Home Decor – The dye-sub process is often used by businesses that sell to interior designers. Decor items like ceramic floor tiles are a popular choice for bathrooms, kitchens, restaurants, & more.
  • Photograph Printing – Arguably the best way to produce the highest-quality photographic images on canvas, magnets, and apparel.

4. Low Minimums

Once the image is set up in a graphic design program it can easily be re-printed for high production quantities or for just one-time use. Depending on the complexity of the design it may cost you more for a graphic designer to design and set-up a print than the actual printed item.

5. Ease of Use

As this process has become more popular in recent years, production equipment, product variety and affordability have increased significantly. Printed items that once required a lot of upfront set-up costs can now be achieved with the one time purchase of sublimation equipment. This means that apparel with full color coverage, even over seams, can now be achieved simply.
