Dye Sublimation Printing Services


To explain the process from a very basic point of view, the cut & sew sublimation process involves printing designs on sublimation paper and then transferring them to fabric using heat and pressure. There's more to it though and there are even other sublimation methods that are not the same as cut and sew.

Cut and Sew Sublimation Advantages

  • The limitations of sublimation printing on blank apparel — e.g., blurring, creasing, and smudging — are completely avoided with custom cut and sew sublimation printing.
  • One of the advantages of cut and sew dye-sublimation is your choice in which parts of the garment you want decorated with sublimation and which parts you want solid.
  • Instead of solid fabric, remember you can always opt to decorate with an embroidered area, screen printing or another style of garment decoration. This is part of the beauty of cut and sew apparel manufacturing — the only limitation to what you can do is your budget!

Cut and Sew Sublimation Process

  • The first step to cut and sew sublimation is to select a stock pattern styles — or you can create a custom pattern & materials to your specifications.
  • Special sublimation transfer paper is printed using a large format printer and special dyes.
  • The design is transferred from this special paper to the garment via heat press: the garment is laid flat, then covered with the printed paper and transferred for 45 seconds.
  • The garment pieces are sewn together by careful hands in our sewing department.
