Sublimated Jerseys

What is it?

Sublimation is a magical process where faeries come down from the sky and sprinkle your ark onto a specific material and then blast it with thier magical wands to make sure it stays there! Or, to be technical and less fun; Sublimation is the process of transferring sublimation ink to a polyester-based material. The image is printed on paper then heat pressed on to the material. In a dye-sublimation process the printing dye is heated up until it turns into a gas, at which point it diffuses into the fibres and solidifies imbedding the image into the fabric.

The benefits of sublimation:

* Design options are virtually unlimited, from simple designs and colors to photographic images and unlimited colors.
* Logos, names, numbers and sponsors can all be included in the design in full color, eliminating the additional costs of screen-printing, embroidery and twill.
* Additional prints can be added to the fabric at a later time, i.e. names or numbers on a jersey

What makes ours the best?

We've tested bolts of materials and hunted for the perfect printer to bring together, we what feel, is the best sublimated jersey specifically for roller derby. Roller derby, as we all know, is a full contact sport full of Velcro. The fabric we've choosen is antibactial, wicking and hold up extremely well to Velcro. Many other sublimators go with the less expensive fabrics to save money or just simply to suit their customers needs. Our customers, you, need the best and the best is what we offer.

Here are some of the teams we've done sublimated jersey for.
