Sublimation Jersey Designs
Sublimation is a manufacturing process where the entire design of the jersey is directly infused into the white fabric. Everything from the design colors of the jersey, the striping, logos, player number, player names and sponsor name & Logo become part of the fabric.
Sublimation jerseys start out as digital designs (Printable Sublimation Designs in PSD, CDR and AI Source Files - created on graphic design applications. Next, the design is printed on sublimation paper - in life size - using large format dye sublimation printer. The printed design is then heat pressed on to the white fabric at high temperature and pressure. The heat and pressure convert the design into gas, which then bonds with the molecules on the fabric. Finally, the fabric panels are sewn together to create the finished jersey.
