Dye Sublimation Printing is Eco-friendly

Dye Sublimation Printing is Eco-friendly

August 16, 2020

Dye Sublimation printing has lots of obvious advantages, we can create all-over designs and the ink remains bright and vivid on the substrate. But, what is often overlooked is the environmental impact of sublimation printing.

Firstly, compared to silk screening, which uses large amounts of water, dye-sublimation printing uses none. Because the process turns the solid directly to a gas, there is absolutely no need for water.

Secondly, the inks that sublimation uses are completely safe. They don’t pose health risks to the people who handle them, nor any harm to the environment. Printers usually opt for using sublimation ink of 4 colors-CYMK, so the result is that only a minimal amount of dye inks are actually used.

Thirdly, the same sublimation print can be used multiple times to print on more than just one garment. This is a process which is called exhaust printing. Although subsequent prints will have their intensity reduced, they will still work for a number of pieces and this will create its own unique effect.

In addition, dye sublimation paper can be used as materials for other crafts. They work well as stationery or gift wrappers. So, there is very little waste and sublimation transfer paper and tissue paper are always recycled.

In general, compared to other printing methods that use solvents and additional chemicals, dye sublimation printing is much more eco-friendly.  If you have any questions, please contact us, and our team will provide you the best service. Thank you for visiting.
