What is sublimation?
Sublimation is a special fabric printing process that uses special ink, heat, and pressure to transfer ink directly into the polyester fabric. Once the ink is transferred into the fabric it is there for good, no peeling, cracking or detail falling off of your garment. We can create unique effects such as ombre as well as highly detailed designs without driving up the cost of your garment. For the sublimation process the fabric starts out as white just like if you were printing on a piece of paper. With sublimation your color choices and combinations are endless! For leotards using sublimation, we offer seven different types of fabrics that we can print on. The photos below show each of these fabrics before, and after printing to better show the different effects of each.
