Sublimation vs. Screen Printing
Sublimation is a fabric printing process in which dyes are injected into the fabric before the garment is assembled (i.e. cut & sewn). This is in contrast to traditional screen printing in which ink is laid on top of the garment. Since the ink actually becomes part of the fibers within the fabric, designs don’t sit on top of the garment as with screen printing.
This means that the design stretches along with the garment, won’t crack or fade over time, and the garment is able to maintain its full moisture wicking properties. The sublimation process allows for incredibly detailed designs that can utilize every inch of the garment—from seam to seam on the front and back, including the hems, sleeves, and collar.
Unlike traditional screen printing, you’re not limited to a certain screen size and you can use any color, font, text size, gradient, and effect you can dream of. Sublimation also allows for customization of your player names / numbers and the use of any font, size, or placement you like.
The best file types for us to work with are EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) and AI (Adobe Illustrator) files in a high resolution (300dpi) vector format. PDF's are acceptable in most cases as well. High resolution image files such as JPGs or TIFs may also be acceptable depending on the quality of the design. Low resolution image files are generally not usable.
To send us your artwork just shoot us an email with the files attached along with any instructions, ideas, names of fonts used, etc. Email us at Info@SpinGaming.gg.
When you send us your design, be sure to include as much detail as possible, including font names and sizes, locations of names/numbers, colors, etc.
If you want a particular color, please specify the Pantone (PMS) number (keeping in mind that computer screens often render colors differently).
Or, if you prefer, let us create a design for you. Spin has talented artists at your disposal to help you create a unique, one of kind item. We can create a design for you from scratch or work with you to fine tune your own creation.
