What is dye sublimation printing?

Dye sublimation printing, a popular printing method, involves printing designs and images onto special transfer paper using sublimation inks. After printing, the paper is then placed onto a substrate, such as fabric or a hard surface. Subsequently, heat and pressure are applied to transfer the ink from the paper to the substrate.

This method of printing offers several advantages. For instance, it produces prints with vibrant, long-lasting colors and high resolution, making it a preferred choice for many. Furthermore, the prints are highly durable and resistant to fading, cracking, and peeling.

Another notable advantage of dye sublimation printing is its ability to facilitate detailed and precise customization. Thus, it is a popular option for printing personalized and one-of-a-kind products.

Moreover, dye sublimation printing is highly versatile, allowing it to print onto a wide range of substrates, such as fabric, ceramic, metal, and plastic. For instance, it is widely used for fabric printing, including clothing and flags, as well as hard surface printing, such as mugs and phone cases. The printing method is also ideal for large format printing, such as banners and trade show graphics, and for printing customized products on demand.

What are Silicone Edge Graphics (SEG)?

Silicone edge graphics (SEG) are a type of display system that uses a special fabric with a silicone strip sewn around the edges. The silicone strip fits into a channel on the frame of the display, creating a smooth and seamless appearance. SEG displays are often used for trade show exhibits, retail displays, and other types of promotional graphics. One of the benefits of SEG is that the fabric can be easily swapped out, making it easy to update your display with new graphics as needed. SEG displays are also lightweight and portable, making them convenient to transport and set up.

Why should I consider using dye sublimated graphics in my retail space?

Compared to digital printing, dye sublimation produces graphics of superior quality. The colors are more vibrant and long-lasting than ink on pulp-based paper. Dye sub graphics also resist fading, cracking, and peeling, making them a durable option in humid or non-temperature controlled environments. In contrast, paper-based prints may permanently warp, sag, or crease.
