Only the polyester yarns in a garment will hold the ink, which leads a lot of people often think sublimation only can only be done on items that are 100% polyester. However, we’ve seen customers get great results on our poly-blends! When you do a sublimation print on a shirt that is not 100% poly, you’ll get a print that looks vintage or distressed—which is very popular right now. Keep in mind that sublimation inks are transparent, which means that it’s best to print on white or light colored substrates so your image is transferred properly.
