Moisture wicking apparel has never been more popular. And nobody offers more custom performance sportswear than LogoSportswear. Our new collection of custom wicking t-shirts,wicking polos, and wicking jerseys are engineered from the finest polyester fabrics and will keep you comfortable and dry—even when the heat is on.
Combining custom wicking apparel with dye sublimation printing offers the ultimate in performance sportswear. This combo is now available at our new custom sublimated apparel shop. Visitors can design, proof and order light colored, sublimated apparel without minimums or setups.
Traditional screen printing or cad printing of wicking apparel covers fabric with ink or film and can trap air or moisture. Dye sublimation printing, on the other hand, maintains the polyester fabric’s ‘wicking’ characteristics so you get sublimated apparel and sublimated jerseys, in rich, long lasting, and brilliant full color.
Sublimation printing is chemistry at its best. When heated, sublimation dye turns into a gas and then penetrates the fibers of the fabric. When the heat is removed the polyester molecules will close and permanently trap the sublimation dyes. Your graphic or image will be indelibly transferred to the garment. And when the fabric cools, the fibers close and permanently retain the brilliant color of the sublimation dye.
One important note is that dye sublimation does have a limitation as it only works with light colored shirts and can’t be used for designs that require white printing.
