Dye Sublimation

Dye Sublimation

Dye sublimation (aka dye sub) is sort of like tattooing but instead of using needles, it uses printed paper & heat to position the ink & print the fabric, dot by dot.

Unlike other forms of branding which generally attach the artwork to the surface of the item, dye sublimation actually dyes the artwork into the product itself.

The Golden Rules of Dye Sublimation:
1. The item must be white (or very light) in colour.
2. Garment fabric must be 100% polyester.
3. Dye sublimation can be used to print ceramic items such as mugs. It is also used to print mouse mats and stubby holders.

Custom Made Garments - the Promised Land of Dye Sublimation.

When you think dye sub, think custom printed fabric. Then think of what you can make out of that fabric. Then think of what a really imaginative person could make out of that fabric... hence the allure of dye sublimation.

As a company, our primary goal is to help clients communicate their brand through uniforms & merchandise. Dye sublimation is a tool that allows us to create something really unique & specific.

Create Uniforms & Merchandise that attracts

...in 3 simple steps.

Let's be clear, what you want is to attract customers/clients/members/etc. What you don't want is to attract irrelevant people (who will waste your time & resources).

Remember, just as you are always looking for your ideal customer/client/member/etc, they are also looking for their ideal brand.

This is why it's important to refine your visual look (uniforms & merchandise). You want to let people know what sort of brand you are at a glance - attention is fleeting.

To do this well, you need to know what your brand is all about & the type of customer you want to attract…

It's best to have a clear idea of your brand to refer to as you step through the ordering process. This will make it quicker & easier to determine the right products & branding for you.

There's no need to get into brand personality types or spirit animals (but, if that is your thing, go for it!).

When keeping it simple, all you really need to know is:

  • What is your brand?
  • Who is your ideal customer?
  • What is your ideal transaction with this customer?

This next step is all about the practicalities.

You should figure out all the details to ensure you get what’s best for your brand in the required timeframe & at the right budget. These include:

  • Time & Money
  • Product function requirements
  • Administrative factors
  • Staff requirements
  • Product selection

You're awesome! Which is why people should know you exist. Your branding (name, logo, colours, etc) helps with this.

It's not enough to just be recognised. You need to be remembered in their time of need. (Step 1)

You can achieve this through integrating your brand onto a variety of products (Step 2)

We'll expertly guide you on the best branding methods to help you do this. (because we do them all ourselves here onsite).
