Athletic Wear and Sublimation Printing

Posted on May 20, 2018

By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): More and more people have been adopting an active lifestyle. And why not? An active lifestyle can help improve muscle and bone health, improve sleep, and help control weight. If you walk down the street or into any coffee shop, you are likely to see people who look like they are headed to yoga, spin class, or some other type of athletic activity. In fact, athletic wear has become so popular that people often wear it even if they are NOT going to the gym. Athletic wear has quickly become a fixture in mainstream fashion and apparel. As a marketer, you will want to capitalize on this trend with sublimated athletic wear.

What is sublimation? Sublimation is a printing technique that allows for vibrant, full color, all-over print tees, and garments.  The artwork is printed on a sheet of high-release paper and transferred onto the garment using heat and pressure. The dye is absorbed by the fabric for a softer feel, unlike screen printing. Sublimation is a great printing process for athletic wear. It allows you to print full-color graphics on lightweight material that won’t fade easily. Check out a few examples of our sublimated athletic wear.
