SHEFFIELD, GB – Sawgrass will be presenting new, ground-breaking solutions for contemporary and long-lasting sublimation imprinting at FESPA Global Print Expo 2019, May 14 to 17, Messe Munich, Germany (B5-H19).

Introducing Key Partnerships For Sublimating Onto Cotton And Dark-Coloured Polyesters

Sublimating on cotton has long been the desire of product decorators worldwide. As the sublimation process only works with polymers, fabric decoration has been limited to synthetic fibres, and sublimating on cotton, the most popular and natural fabric in the world, has remained out of reach.

At FESPA 2019, Sawgrass will showcase how partnerships with Chemica, Forever, Poli-Tape and Siser are breaking barriers and giving product decorators new solutions and more options for making money with sublimation.

Sawgrass’ work with Forever has fundamentally changed the paradigm of sublimating cotton. Forever’s Subli-Light transfer media enable users to generate prints that can be sublimated onto cotton fabrics. Sawgrass collaborated with Forever to develop specific profile and print settings in Virtuoso Print Manager to ensure consistently vibrant and accurate colour for each product.

A partnership with Siser® will also debut a new global solution at FESPA that’s going to cause quite a stir. Siser’s EasySubli™ matte heat transfer material and Sawgrass’ specially formulated Siser EasySubli ink set, the throws wide open the door to a world full of colour and cotton. This unique combination unlocks the potential of sublimating on coloured polyesters, cotton, rayon and more.

When paired together EasySubli and EasySubli ink, along with the Sawgrass SG400 desktop sublimation printer, produce the brightest, most vibrant colours and best results. Additionally, Siser EasySubli Inks can achieve traditional sublimation jobs, so there’s no need to switch out inks between projects. The EasySubli transfer media and ink set are perfect for customised garments such as sportswear, fan wear and concert t-shirts, though the application list is limitless.
