Dye Sublimation with Disperse Dye

The soft signage, home décor, flag, furniture and fashion markets have seen remarkable growth due in no small part to the growing capabilities of today’s dye-sub printers and a widening array of available polyesters.

  • Transfer Printing
  • Direct Dye Sublimation

Direct to Textile Printing

Today’s fabric handling systems, technical and chemistry advancements continue to push the production capacity in the direct to textile marketplace. With varying chemistries specific for select fabric types, understanding the workflows and processes is critical for application success.

  • Disperse Dye
  • Acid Dye
  • Reactive Dye
  • Textile Pigment

Heat Presses

Whether curing textile pigments and pre-treatments or sublimating disperse dye, heat presses are an essential part of the fabric decorating process. Clam Shell presses are ideal for sampling and can be used for low to moderate volumes at varying sizes. For high volume scenarios, calendar transfer presses simplify the workflow and increase output.

  • Clam Shell
  • Large Format Table Press
  • Calendar Transfer Press

Textile Processing

Automatic pre-treatment machines provide consistent and repeatable solution delivery, ensuring the highest quality prints. In digital direct-to-garment ( DTG) printing, white ink requires the preliminary application of a pre-treatment solution to serve as the binder for the inks.


Steamers are an essential part of the fixation of textile dyes, as dry heat will not properly set the inks. Ink types that require steam fixation include:

  • Acid Dye
  • Reactive Dye
