For Sublimation Printing, Which Fabric Is Suitable?
Your company has decided to order branded t-shirts for your company’s team participating in the next Tough Mudder. You have been put in charge of choosing the style & design of said t-shirts from a customized t-shirts online service. You’ve put in the research and decided to go with an all over dye-sublimation printing service, as you feel this gives you more style options. Congratulations! Mission (almost) accomplished! But wait! What type of fabric do you choose…?
Without a doubt, the best shirts for sublimation printing use a fabric that is at least 50% polyester (75-100% polyester will give you optimum vibrancy). Synthetic fibers are pretty much the standard in performance apparel these days. They are particularly hard-wearing, something you will want if you are competing in any extreme sport (I am pretty sure Tough Mudder, Spartan races, etc. qualify). The last thing you want is your choice of t-shirt to fall apart in the middle of the race – with your company’s name & logo in tatters! Not the message you want to send…
