What is a Dye Sublimation Transfer Print ?

At National Signs and Flags we use Dye Sublimation Transfer Prints  as an alternative to full colour traditional Screen Printing onto 100% White Polyester T Shirts and Singlets.

A Digital Printer is used to create full colour copies of the design onto a special ink transfer paper and then heat pressed onto the clothing.

Here are some Basketball Uniforms we made using our transfers, for a local Geelong team:

What is a Digital Garment Print on a T Shirt?

Digital Garment Printing is an alternative to screen printing, and has become popular for one off designs or small quantities of white or light coloured printed T shirts.

Our National Signs and Flags digital printing machine allows for full colour printing, with a print area of about 300 x 400mm.

Here is an example on a Ladies T Shirt created for a local Geelong T shirt designer:

How many colours are used in a screen print on a t shirt?

At National Sings and Flags in Geelong we work with you to determine the number of screen printed colours you need to make your T Shirt and clothing designs look great and stay within your budget.

Often a single colour design is all that is needed for a strong image and it is the most cost effective solution for getting your T Shirts or clothing screen printed.

An example is this Black Screen Print on a white T Shirt:

1 Colour Print

By adding some coloured highlights with a second screen printed colour, the details in the design become highlighted and the lettering becomes more prominent:

This is a 2 Colour Black and Blue Screen Print on a white T Shirt:

On Dark Garments, three colours may be necessary to achieve the same type of effect
