We use state of the art machinery in our dye sublimation process

When it comes to fabric printing services, we are the experts helping you bring product ranges to life!


Dye-sublimation printing is where a computer rip is used to process artwork which is then printed onto sublimation paper, then by passing this paper through a heat press along with a polyester fabric the image is transferred to the fabric. Here at Paul Bristow Associates this process is mainly used for ‘all-over’ t-shirt designs on a poly-elastane fabric, printed leggings and printed face masks. But recent projects have led us to producing bandanas, snoods, sweatshirt and hoodies.


Dye-sublimation printing has many advantages like other digital printing methods, high level of detail can be achieved, low set up cost, unlimited colours. Dye-sublimation also has its disadvantages such as the speed of printing when compared to other methods of printing such as screen printing.  But when combining the excellent wash results of dye-sublimation and recycled polyester that we use some of our all over printed UK made products are truly unique and exceptional.


This processed has allowed us to produce 1000’s of all-over printed t-shirts for companies such as the National Gallery and Tate. These t-shirts unique selling point is the fact that a design can be printing all over the garment including sleeves with no limitation, we then make the garment in our UK factory, giving a 100% made in UK product.


The minimum order quantity (MOQ) with dye-sublimation printing is 50 products. These can be split into different sizes.


When you contact us with an image, our fully trained account managers will use their industry knowledge and experience to advise you which print method to use.  Access exceptional print quality, with vibrant and high resolution images, by coming to Paul Bristow for you dye sublimation printing.
