About Transfer Printing
Sublimation transfer printing is used to print images, logos and text onto fabrics and other polyester coated substrates. The process combines software for managing the images and text with hardware to put the image onto specially treated transfer paper.
In transfer printing the image to be printed is captured by the coating on the transfer paper and then a press is used to apply heat and pressure to transfer the image onto the T-shirt, banner or other cloth item.
According to the Industrial Fabrics Association online magazine, Fabric Graphics, dye sublimation transfer printing technology is available to print directly onto the cloth substrate also. The technology is used for printing items such as banners, flags and sports uniforms. '
