Material for sublimation printing can range from fabrics and textiles to hard surfaces. A versatile printing process, sublimation printing is fast and affordable, producing high-quality prints without significant cost or setup time. An industry leader for over 25 years, Ultraflex maintains an inventory of the best fabric for sublimation printing.
Blockout fabrics are designed to block out light, making the fabric opaque to viewers. This produces a high-quality, visible image regardless of the surroundings of the fabric. The VorTex Eclipse D270 is one of the best products for blockout applications, as it maintains 95% opacity. It’s flexible and attractive and can be easily framed. But because it is opaque, it’s not suitable for backlit applications.
Some amount of stretch is often useful for displays, as it prevents the product from ripping or tearing. However, stretchy products can also be challenging to print because the material may deform during the printing process. VorTex Super Stretch D231 is a dye sublimation fabric that is opaque, stretchy, and designed for experienced printers. It’s an excellent choice for banners, seminar signage, and convention displays.
Backlit fabrics are specifically designed to diffuse light, providing even lighting on the exterior surface and a striking, high-resolution image. For dye sublimation, the VorTex Backlit LX D300 is the obvious choice, as it’s been designed specifically for light diffusion. Made from high quality, 100% polyester, the VorTex Backlit is a fire resistant product ideal for indoor use. And while it’s one of the best fabric for sublimation printing, it is also compatible with UV and Latex printing processes.
