Important sublimation printing facts
What to expect and how to make most of it
Pay attention to
Our dye sublimation printing for T-shirt and Tanks tops is not a cut & sew process, meaning we cannot guarantee accurate placement for graphics on our sublimation t-shirt and tank top.
Due to the variation in sleeve shapes, we cannot guarantee exact placement on sleeves; for example, we cannot do jersey style striping on the sleeves.
We cannot guarantee placement directly underneath the collar of a shirt; for instance, creating a graphic that has pearls wrapping around the collar is not doable because of the variation in placement.
If our guides are not used to create the files, we are not liable for bad placement, blurry images, or white areas (if the graphic is not large enough format).
White streaks will appear on all t-shirts around the seams, especially around the shoulders, under the armpits, and around the collar of the shirt. Therefore, we advise using a lighter color shade in your sublimation print files to minimize the streak visibility.
Graphics that wrap from front to back are not do-able. For instance, we wouldn’t be able to accurately print your shirt if you wanted a dragon graphic that wraps around the torso to line up front-to-back.
Make the most of sublimation:
- light colors,
- use guide for accurate placement,
Due to our sublimation process, graphics may shift up to 2 inches when printed. Also, white streaks/creasing cannot be avoided with our sublimation process. These marks are most common under the arms of the garments and near stitching (sides, collars, shoulders, etc).
