How does your Pick-A-Print program work?

Essentially, this program allows you to pick from over thousands of prints and put that print on a base cloth of your choosing.

Here's the step-by-step process:
1) Choose a print!
- Library 1 and Library 2 show regular stocked prints (NOTE: ask sales rep to check inventory on all items)
- Digital Prints In Stock shows our stocked digital prints.
- Digital Print Library shows ALL digital print options that we offer, though these are not stocked.
2) Choose a base cloth! We have 12 stocked base cloth options. Pick the ones that best fit your needs.
- For stocked items, the minimum order is 50 yards
- For non stocked items, please allow 6-7 weeks for production and shipping.
*FYI: If you'd like a print that is either not stocked or custom, then the minimum is 220 yards of paper. This minimum can be split among any of the base fabrics at 50 yards each, or it can be split between 2 prints at 110 yards each.
A base cloth card featuring our stocked base cloths is available upon request.

What’s the difference between Heat Sublimation Printing and Wet Printing?

WET PRINTING

During the wet printing process, dye is applied directly to the fabric. This is typically done with an acid dye on a nylon-base fabric. Usually this method can achieve brighter colors because of the nylon in the base cloth. The dye penetrates all the way through the fabric during the wet print process, making it easy to identify a wet print by looking at the back of the fabric. You will be able to see the dye/wet print through the back of the fabric.
HEAT SUBLIMATION PRINTING
During heat transfer, or sublimation printing, a design is transferred from paper to fabric using both heat and pressure for a specific amount of time, called dwell time. With sublimation printing, the solid dye is actually turned into a gas form when it is heated. This is often done on fabrics containing polyester in the blend because polyester can withstand higher temperatures during the sublimation or heat transfer process. You will also be pleased to find out the images on a sublimation print are unlikely to fade, even on your favorite active wear stretch fabrics!
