Sublimation doesn’t work with most natural materials, such as cotton. Natural fabrics have no pores to open and accept the vaporized gaseous colorants. The colorants are engineered to fuse permanently with polyester or similar synthetic fabrics. Additionally, dark fabrics cannot be used in the sublimation process so most sublimated uniforms start out as a blank white polyester material.
Sublimated team football uniforms have the following advantages over other types of uniforms:
Because the vaporized colorant penetrates the matrix of the polyester fabric, the dye actually becomes a permanent part of the fabric. Sublimated football uniforms won’t fade, crack, peel, or deteriorate under normal conditions. Sublimated uniforms can last for many years with proper care.
Sublimated football uniforms are breathable. There are no embroidered logos or screen-printed numbers or graphic elements to block air exchange with the skin. The polyester fabrics used for sublimation are engineered to breathe and wick moisture away from the skin for excellent moisture management properties.
Sublimated football team uniforms are an excellent value compared to screen printed or sewn twill uniforms. Adding more colors, a more intricate design, or personalization doesn’t impact the price.
When you need to reorder in smaller quantities, that’s not a problem. The sublimation process is a direct digital process that does not require additional set-up charges that drive up the cost of re-ordering traditional team football uniforms.
With sublimated team football uniforms there are practically no limits on the designs and colors that can be incorporated into your team’s football uniforms.
