How does the artwork need to be supplied?
Typically, dye-sublimation printers use a CMYK colour process, which can lead to issues as a lot of artwork is usually supplied using an RGB scheme. Converting RGB to CMYK can cause issues with the colour finish of the display; while we do provide a free preflight check for all of the artwork that’s supplied using our Artwork Upload page, if you’re unsure about your colour conversions, our expert Graphic Design Team is on hand to help with any finishing queries, or indeed a full artwork design.
Why is the colour finish different from other forms of printing?
Whenever you are printing on fabric, there is always the possibility that saturation, or colour shifts, can occur as the dye is absorbed into the fabric fibers. The colour of the base fabric can also influence the final print display. As a result, sublimation prints are typically created to be brighter, finished with richer colours than other kinds of print, as any variations in colour show up less in a more vibrant print.
The key to achieving a detailed, photo-perfect finish is to have a colour profile for your dye-sublimation. Having a color profile that is used as a standard for a process baseline gives you peace of mind when it comes to the finish of your display. We have tried and tested our dye-sublimation process on our in-house fabrics to create our ideal set of colour profiling processes - meaning we can guarantee you a perfect finish every time.
