How it Works

NatSub Apparel only works in dye-sublimation. What does that mean? Here’s an easy way to understand it:

  1. Your image is printed flat on paper with a special dye.
  2. Your image is put through a heat transfer machine called a sublimator.
  3. The paper travels through the sublimator and simultaneously gets heated up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit against the fabric.
  4. The dye on the paper is activated by the heat and turns into a gas that immediately permeates the fibers of the fabric.
  5. Your image becomes a part of the fabric, much like a pattern would be on a bolt of fabric!

We lay out the fabric on a table, cut out the pieces of the shirt, and take it to the sewing line where they put it all together to make your custom shirt!
