What is sublimation and why is it best for custom-designed sports apparel?

The sublimation process

Custom designed Men's Cycling Jersey – designed and developed for comfort and a perfect fit

Dye sublimation is a process of printing to fabric (and other substances) that provides the best quality, most durable printing option.  In sublimation, the inks are fused into the fabric as opposed to sitting on top of the baric such as in inkjet or screen printing. The process not only gives fabrics a softer touch after the priting, but it is also very durable. The colour remains strong in outdoor lighting and after extensive washing so it’s the ideal process for sportswear and school clothing.

Sublimation produces a high-quality product

No short cuts are taken here. We source only the highest performance fabrics and raw materials to ensure Captivations’ clients perform at their absolute optimum. Only the best lycras, polyesters and other suitable fabrics are used to ensure the highest quality garments.
