What is Sublimation and Why is it So Popular
I’m sure you’ve noticed the unique sublimated styles that are displayed at every meet. Whether it’s a crazy design, ombre color gradient, or a gymnastics warm up with their team name printed on the back, sublimation is everywhere!
We all know that sublimated technology opens up a new layer of creative designs that the traditional cut and sew styles can’t come close to: but, do you ever wonder what exactly sublimation is?
What is Sublimation
Next, by using top of the line equipment, that design is printed on paper in a state of the art temperature and humidity controlled room. After that, a piece of fabric that is cut into the shape of the garment is lined up on top of the printed out design and fed through a large heat transfer system. This machine heats the ink off the paper and onto the fabric. All that’s left is to sew the garment together to bring your design ideas to life!
Sublimated designs by GK have been years in the making. We have searched worldwide for the best inks available. The Italian inks that we selected are known as the professionals’ choice for their bright colors, unsurpassed ink release, very best in wash-fastness and printability. As a result, your print will have intense colors, clear lines and less fading.
Even with the best designers, highest quality inks, and top of the line technology; nothing would matter without the best fabrics. After a rigorious testing period, we have found the highest quality fabrics available. Because of this, your products will last longer with less than a 5% color loss after 50 washings, so your garment will continue to look great for years to come.
