What is Dye Sublimation?
Dye-sublimation printers allow you to print photo-lab-quality pictures on performance apparel. Dye sublimation printing is a technique that uses heat sensitive inks, these inks turn into gas under the influence of heat and combine with a 100% polyester medium. Since longevity is something we all want from our performance apparel, it’s also important to know that because dyes sublimate into the fabric instead of just being applied onto its surface, dye sublimation lasts longer than conventional performance apparel, it doesn’t fade or crack.
Aside from custom sublimated Athlima Apparel, we offer many other brands that are carried in stock. We can decorate in stock apparel using any of the following methods; sublimation, digital print, vinyl transfer, screen print, sew on twill and embroidery.
What is Embroidery?
Embroidery, art of decorating material, primarily textile fabric, by means of a needle and thread. It is ideal for hats, bags, track suit decorating, sports apparel logos and sew on twill numbers and name bars.
What is Screen Printing?
Screen Printing, which is also known as Silk Screening, is a method of printing graphics on a t-shirt using thick inks that lay on top of the shirt rather than soaking into the shirt. We use the same process to decorate sports apparel, bags, jackets and more. It is very durable and most cost effective for large quantity orders.
What is Digital Print/Heat Transfer?
Vinyl Heat transfer/Digital Print, or HTV for short, is a specialty vinyl polymer that can be used on certain fabrics and materials to create designs and promotional products. It comes in a roll or sheet form with an adhesive backing so it can be cut, weeded, and placed on a substrate for heat application. Can be used on garment decorating such as logos bags, jersey numbers and name bars.

Logos and art should be in vector format which allows us to increase and decrease any art or logo without loss of detail.
Logos and art that are .jpeg, .tiff, bmp etc will result in additional charges as they need to be altered and in some cases redrawn.
Color matching – dye color may vary order to order. Color variation of 5% – 10% is acceptable. Color may have minimal change due to material/supplies change, ink manufacture and even change in weather. For best color results it is ideal to order your apparel together.
