Mississauga, ON – Last Monday, FIEL announced the addition of dye-sublimation to their available decoration methods, among others such as screen printing, heat transfer printing, and embroidery.
“Our decoration processes are expanding faster than ever before,” said Asif Bandeali, Executive Vice President. “Since last year, we started in the direction of decorating and it is hard to believe we have already come so far.”
The process of dye-sublimation is when inks become gaseous and permeate the fabric under high temperature. Artwork is printed on coated heat-resistant transfer paper as a reverse image of the final design. Under high temperature and pressure such as using a heat press, the dye is transferred from the paper and settles into the fibres of the fabric.
