Looking for a t shirt or company uniform that doesn’t fade or crack and looks like new after long term washing? Sublimation Dye printing may be the right choice for you. We have been using sublimation printing for over 6 months at Every Tees Sdn Bhd and have received nothing but praise for its durability and lasting colors.
What Is Sublimation Dye Printing?
Sublimation Dye Printing is a printing method that involves transferring artwork from a high release paper onto a garment. The artwork is transferred to the garment using both heat and pressure. The heat and pressure turn the ink into a gaseous state (sublimation) where the ink becomes embeds the ink into the fibers of the garment.
Unlike heat transfer printing, the sublimation dye process embeds the ink into the fibers which offer incredible durability without the rubbery texture of a heat transfer.
Because the ink is fused into the garment fabric, the look and feel of the printed area is consistent with the material being used. The sublimation process properties also allow for the printing of vivid colors and patterns.
Unfortunately, the sublimation process can not be used on cotton based shirts and garments. Suitable materials for garments are microfiber eyelets and microfiber interlock.
Sublimation dye printing works well with many types of garments including round neck t-shirts, V-neck t shirts, polo tees, singlets, and Muslimas.
Due to the nature of production, our minimum order is only one item. Production lead time is 2 weeks

Why Is Sublimation T Shirt Printing So Durable?
Sublimation garments are extra durable because the dyes are embedded into a garments fabric. The embedded dye is fused with the fabric and becomes as strong and durable as the fabric used for the garment.
The dye sublimation process also makes the fabric feel softer as a person feels the texture of the material used and not the ink.
Sublimation on Company Shirts & Uniforms
Company shirts and uniforms will retain their colors much longer when using the sublimation dye process. Uniforms can be washed frequently without any noticeable loss to colors. Every Tees highly recommends that sublimation dyes be used for uniforms in active demanding situations as they are more durable and will look great, wash after wash. View our company uniforms
Washing Care for Sublimation T Shirt and Uniforms
Sublimation Dye T shirts and garments should be cleaned using normal everyday washing methods. It is advisable NOT to machine dry your sublimation garments that have numbers or names applied to them. Our concern is that the numbers and names may shrink due to the extreme heat in dryers.

Custom Sublimation T Shirts
Sublimation dye process allows for “all over” printing where the design can cover the entire shirt. Another benefit of sublimation printing is that your color choices are unlimited, the colors you choose will look livid and lively and not fade over time. We highly recommend that you use the sublimation process when designing fashion artwork for clothing.
Cost Benefit of Sublimation Dye Printing
Sublimation dye printing is more costly than other types of printing, but the benefits of sublimation can outweigh our other printing methods if you factor in time and durability.
Sublimation printing for uniforms would be a good idea where you want to protect your branding image as the uniforms look great for a long time. There is little need to replace these uniforms as they are very durable.
