How it Works
NatSub Apparel only works in dye-sublimation. What does that mean? Here’s an easy way to understand it:
- Your image is printed flat on paper with a special dye.
- Your image is put through a heat transfer machine called a sublimator.
- The paper travels through the sublimator and simultaneously gets heated up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit against the fabric.
- The dye on the paper is activated by the heat and turns into a gas that immediately permeates the fibers of the fabric.
- 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!
