Buyer’s Guide

Sublimation Clothing Manufacturers: The Definitive Guide for Fashion Brands

As a fashion brand, you may be wondering if sublimation clothing is the right fit for your business. You may be wondering about the quality of sublimation garments, the production process, and how it can benefit your business. Sublimation clothing is a great option for fashion brands who are looking for high-quality, on-trend garments that are produced quickly and efficiently. Some sublimation clothing manufacturers even offer design and development services, so you can get your garments made exactly to your specifications. In this guide, we'll cover everything you need to know about sublimation clothing. We'll also outline the steps you need to take to find the best sublimation clothing manufacturer for your business and some mistakes to avoid when starting your own clothing line. So without further ado, let's get started!

1. What Is Clothing Sublimation?

Clothing sublimation is a process that uses heat to transfer dye onto materials like polyester and nylon. The dye is vaporized and then absorbed by the fabric, which allows it to permanently bond with the fibers.

This creates bright and vibrant colors that are resistant to fading and also makes clothing sublimation a popular choice for printing designs onto t-shirts, hoodies, and other garments.

2. Advantages of Sublimation

When it comes to sublimation, there are several advantages that this printing process has over others. Here are a few of the biggest advantages:

No Color Limitations

With sublimation, there are no limitations on the colors that can be used. This is because the sublimation inks are transferred directly onto the fabric, which allows for a wider range of colors to be used. This is perfect for fashion brands that want to use a variety of colors in their designs.

No Setup Fees

Another advantage of sublimation is that there are no setup fees, unlike screen printing. This is because sublimation doesn’t require any screens or plates to be made, which saves on the cost of production.

Higher Quality Prints

Sublimation also results in higher quality prints, as the ink is actually infused into the fabric. This results in a design that will never fade or crack and will last for the life of the garment.

Greater Color Accuracy

Some printing options can result in colors that are not accurate to the design. With sublimation, the colors will always be accurate, as they are taken directly from the design file. There is only a minimal to no difference at all when it comes to the colors in the design and the colors of the sublimated garment.

Environmentally Friendly

The process of sublimation does not use any water or chemicals, making it more environmentally friendly than other printing methods.

3. Common Sublimation Clothing Designs

As sublimation is primarily used on polyester fabrics, there are a few common designs that manufacturers tend to produce. These include:

All-Over Sublimation Designs

As the name suggests, this design covers the entire garment in a sublimated print. This allows you to get creative with your designs and can be used to create some truly eye-catching clothing.

One of the main benefits of all-over sublimation printing is that it doesn’t require any additional stitching or panels to be added to the garment. This means that the manufacturing process is simpler and quicker, which in turn reduces the cost of the garments.

Front and Back Sublimated Designs

This is one of the most common sublimation designs often used on t-shirts. As the name suggests, the design is printed on the front and back of the garment. This design is very versatile as you can use it to print a wide variety of designs, from simple logos to complex graphics.

Sleeves Sublimated Designs

This design is similar to the front and back sublimated design but instead of printing on the front and back of the garment, the design is printed on the sleeves. This is a great way to add an extra element of design to your garments without overcomplicating the manufacturing process.

Side Panels Sublimated Designs

This design is often used on sportswear garments such as basketball jerseys and football shirts. The design is printed on the side panels of the garment, which allows you to add some extra decoration to your clothing without increasing the manufacturing time or cost.

4. Recommended Clothing Fabric for Sublimation

As a sublimation clothing manufacturer, you have a few fabric options to choose from. The most popular fabrics for sublimation are polyester, nylon, and spandex.

Polyester is the most popular choice for sublimation due to its durability and print quality. Nylon is also a popular choice for sublimation due to its stretchability, which allows for more vibrant and detailed prints. Spandex is a less popular choice for sublimation due to its less durable nature, but it can still produce great results.

The best way to choose the right fabric for your sublimation project is to experiment with different fabrics and see what works best for you. There is no one perfect fabric for sublimation, so it’s important to find the right combination of fabrics that work best for your project.

5. The Clothing Sublimation Process

The sublimation process is a great way to produce high-quality, custom-printed clothing. And as a fashion brand, it’s important to understand how the process works before you start working with sublimation manufacturers. Here’s a three-step guide to the sublimation process:

Step#1 Design

First, you’ll need to create a design that you want to print on your clothing. This can be done using any graphics software, like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. Once you have your design ready, you’ll need to convert it into a format that can be used for sublimation printing.

Step#2 Printing

Once your design is ready, it’s time to print it onto sublimation paper. This special paper is coated with a sublimation dye, which will be transferred onto the fabric during the sublimation process.

You’ll need to use a sublimation printer that is specifically designed for sublimation printing and use sublimation inks. Once your design is printed onto the sublimation paper, it’s time to move on to the next step.

Step#3 Heat Pressing

Now that your design is printed, it’s time to transfer it onto the fabric. This is done using a heat press machine. The sublimation paper is placed on the fabric, and the heat press machine is used to apply heat and pressure to the paper. This causes the sublimation dye to transfer onto the fabric.

The temperature and pressure settings will vary depending on the type of fabric you’re using. Once the sublimation process is complete, you’ll have a piece of clothing with a high-quality, custom-printed design.

As you can see, the sublimation process is straightforward. And with the help of a sublimation manufacturer, you can easily create high-quality, custom-printed clothing for your fashion brand.

There are a few things you need to take into account when pricing your sublimation clothing:

10. 5 Traps to Avoid Before Launching Your Sublimation Clothing Line

As a fashion brand, sublimation clothing is a great way to create unique and stylish garments. However, there are a few traps you need to avoid before launching your sublimation clothing line.

Before you launch your sublimation clothing line, it’s important to do your research. This includes research on the sublimation process, the sublimation clothing market, and your target audience. If you don’t do your research, you could end up making some expensive mistakes.

#2 Not Finding the Right Manufacturer

Not all wholesale sublimation clothing suppliers are created equal. You need to find a manufacturer that is experienced in sublimation and that has a good reputation. Otherwise, you could end up with subpar products.

#3 Not Knowing Your Target Audience

It’s important to know who your target audience is before you launch your sublimation clothing line. This will help you determine what kind of sublimation clothing to create. If you don’t know your target audience, you could end up creating sublimation clothing that no one wants to wear.
