Sublimation CertifiedSM - The Laughing Giraffe ® baby & toddler apparel garments & accessories are specifically engineered for the sublimation process. When a garment is marked as Sublimation CertifiedSM, it means the content of the fabric will work with a wide range of the sublimation colors, producing superior image quality.
All Over Print on a blank garment - All over sublimated print designs are commonly seen in fashion t-shirts and dresses, but often these garments have production marks or "press folds" at the hem points and under the arms where the design didn't completely transfer.
Templates customized to the size of the blank garment being sublimated are very helpful for the printing process. Garments are laid flat under a heat press that is able to cover the surface area of the fabric/garment. The process is completed as the press sublimates the ink onto the garment.
All Over Print on the fabric roll / uncut fabric – There are no production marks or "press folds" at the hem points and under the arms as the fabric. Minimums are larger as rolls of fabric need to be printed prior to cutting and sewing.
Vivid vs Vintage print qualities – printing on 100% Polyester will ensure vivid & bright prints while printing on 65% Polyester 35% Cotton fabrics will result in a vintage look. The vintage look occurs as the 35% cotton is not effected by the sublimation inks.
A full color digital print technology that works with polyester substrates and polymer coated substrates. The sublimation dyes are carried via liquid ink or gel ink through a piezo-electric print head and deposited on a high-release inkjet paper to then be transferred onto the substrate. The print technology requires a combination of time, temperature and pressure to “transfer” the sublimation dyes into the polyester molecules on the substrate from the high-release inkjet paper. The conventional equipment for sublimation transfer is a heat press. The result of this process is a virtually permanent full color, high resolution print that will not crack, fade or peel from the substrate under normal conditions. Most sublimation dyes start to sublimate at 350 degrees Fahrenheit but 380-400 degrees is recommended for most substrates. Digital sublimation printing works on light colored, polyester or poly coated substrates. Athletic textiles, sports performance apparel, ceramic products and poly coated fiber reinforced plastic are some of the main product categories. Digital sublimation printing is also used in the creation of trade show displays, snowboards, skis and skateboards. Digital sublimation printing is commonly referred to as "dye sub" printing, or simply "sublimation.
Blank Apparel - Blank apparel, commonly referred to as “blanks,” are undecorated garments for the embellishment industry. Blanks are perfect for private label merchandise, and can be used for digital sublimation printing, direct to garment printing, and screen-printing.
