Printed Elastics & Decorative Ribbons
Printed Ribbons & Elastics can be printed directly or by a process known as ‘Dye Sublimation’. Printing directly is a simple process that uses Pigmented inks and can print on most fabrics.
Dye Sublimation is a process that involves printing the image onto paper using water or solvent based dyes. The image is transferred onto the ribbon or elastic in a separate process by Heat & Pressure. Sublimation printing is only suitable for Polyester based fabrics.
Applications include Printed Waste Bands, Promotional products, Lanyards, Elastic Braces, Apparel Trim.
