Frequently Ask Questions
Dye Sublimation printing is a printing process based on a chemical reaction. Special dyes are printed by our large digital printers onto paper. These dyes have the property of becoming gaseous at 200C. The paper and fabric are pressed together in a large calendar, or heat press. The image is transferred to the fabric during this heating process. The heat not only transfers the ink but it also imbeds, or sublimates, the ink into the fabric and sets it so it won’t run or fade. Dye Sublimation can be done on polyester or nylon fabrics, offers a very good bleed through with zero added weight.

Yes. We provide templates for all of our standard products. They can be downloaded HERE or by clicking the Resources tab at the top of any page.
The short answer is Yes. The long answer; We print using C.M.Y.K. for dye sublimation and C.M.Y.K.Lc.Lm.W. for UV printing. These allow for a wide variety of possible colours. Pantone matching is something we are very familiar with and can tweak the CMYK values to match your Pantone colours. If you have very specific requirements we recommend ordering a physical proof sample. We take your colour as supplied, print it along with a few variations for you to choose from. There is a small fee for this.
We do not offer installation services.
Production on most standard items is 5-7 business days. Rush services are available at a premium. Call for availability.

We have many different methods of finishing a banner. The most common method is hem and grommet. Banners can also be finished with seam tape, Banner Ups(R), Velcro, webbing or d-rings. We can also supply your banner unfinished.
Banners are made primarily of vinyl. There are different weights and thicknesses depending on the application.
If you order a banner up to 60” we print with UV cured inks. If your banner is wider than 60” we print with latex inks.
Banners are often hanged or attached to a wall or fence so hardware isn’t normally needed.
