About Smack Sublimated
What do record players, VCRs, fax machines, and screen printing or heat pressing on stock jerseys have in common? THEY HAVE BEEN REPLACED BY TECHNOLOGY.
Dye Sublimation is a “game changer” in the Team Apparel business. It’s a once in a lifetime event that has permanently disrupted the “old school, business as usual” uniform business.
Dye Sublimation - This process uses the science of sublimation, in which heat and pressure are applied to a solid, turning it into a gas through an endothermic reaction without passing through the liquid phase.In sublimation printing, unique sublimation dyes are transferred to sheets of “transfer” paper”. The heat press then “transfers” the sublimation dyes at the molecular level into the substrate. The end result of the sublimation process is a nearly permanent, high resolution, full color print. Because the dyes are infused into the substrate at the molecular level, rather than applied at a topical level (such as with screen printing and direct to garment printing), the prints will not crack, fade or peel from the substrate under normal conditions.
Smack Sublimated is a “Worldwide Game Changer”. Our goal is to disrupt the “business as usual” big name brands (Nike, Under Armour, etc) by providing apparel that is equal in quality, superior in style, delivered faster, and saves our customers a lot of money !!
Our company was founded by Team Apparel experts with decades of experience in this market. While our home base is in Los Angeles, our sublimation facilities are in China and USA.
