Can dye sublimation work with dark garment?

Modified on: 2016-12-15 12:18:42 -0800

True sublimation works when printing with a dye sublimation printer, and pressing onto a white poly coated substrate. There are some solutions for white cotton based garments; however it does not work with dark garments. Since there is no white dye for the printers, the white balance of the image is replaced with the white of the substrate. So printing to a dark garment is not possible without putting a white base layer on first. There are some sublimation coatings, pastes, and poly coated vinyl that can be applied to garments; however we do not carry any such product at this time.
