Dye-sublimation is probably the most technically advanced large-format textile print technology available in the market today. The technology is not considered a mainstream option as it is seen as an extremely labour demanding and capital-intensive colour reproduction process.
Dye-sublimation printing yields beautiful and permanent colours that are embedded in the substrate or fabric, rather than printed on the surface. Images on fabric won't fade or crack even after multiple washing.
Under high temperature and pressure, the dye turns into a gas and permeates the fabric and then solidifies into its fibres. The fabric is permanently dyed so it can be washed without damaging the quality of the image.
Staying true to our NZMADE stance, our parent company is the largest vertically integrated fabric production house within New Zealand.
This guarantees the availability of both the resource & equipment to handle any job no matter the size or complexity.
As the only specialist fabric centric production house in Aotearoa nobody has a better understanding of the infinite customisable options available when using fabric.
Color is perception. Our eyes see something (the sky, for example), and data sent from our eyes to our brains tells us it’s a certain colour (blue). Objects reflect light in different combinations of wavelengths. Our brains pick up on those wavelength combinations and translate them into the phenomenon we call color.
