Stand out from the crowd with our sublimated Sportswear

Our custom designer range of clothing takes advantage of a new technology called ‘sublimation’. This allows us to match your club colours to take out the hassle of sourcing your teamwear from stock standard colours. Furthermore, there are no additional costs for embroidery, printing, etc – all artwork, including the pattern, is directly applied to the fabric giving a professional and seamless finish.

 

About Sublimation

Traditional screen printing covers fabric with ink, making it nearly impossible for air or moisture to pass through. The sublimation process dyes the fabric with colour, which helps maintain the fabrics wicking characteristics (the ability to breathe and let moisture through), ideal for sport or trade industry; because the process dyes each thread of the fabric, there is no peeling, flaking or noticeable colour change. When the sublimating cycle (including heating and pressure) is completed, the image has been transferred to the garment and has actually become a part of the fabric. You can run your finger across the surface of sublimation and feel nothing. For high quality printing on breathable fabric, sublimation cannot be beat.

In short – You get the highest quality garment, in rich, long lasting colour. TURA Sports offers a full sublimation service on many different types and weights of polyester to assist in providing the perfect garment for your requirements. There are no manufacture minimums which means that individual sports such as golf, tennis, cycling and running can also benefit from this technology with turnaround times as little as 1-4 weeks.

 

The benefits of sublimation

  • Design is virtually unlimited. From simple shapes and colours to blends, shadows and photographic images.
  • Numbering can also be achieved, which eliminates the need to have hot, sweaty plastic numbers on the back.
  • Logos, names, numbers and sponsors can be included in the design in full colour.
  • Depending on your artwork, prices can be cheaper than traditional paneled garments, where you have the additional costs of embroidery, numbers, lettering and screen-printing.
