Dye Sub Printing for a Sustainable Future

The future is Dye Sublimated Printing

The Green Touch

Embracing Water-Based Dyes for a Greener Future

At the heart of our dye sublimation printing process at Displays 2 Go lies the use of eco-friendly, water-based dyes. Unlike their solvent-based counterparts, these dyes do not release harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere, significantly reducing our environmental impact. This shift to water-based dyes represents an important step towards a cleaner and healthier world. Currently, we at Displays 2 Go utilise the dye sublimation print process for 80% of our products that leave our premises, and we are continuously striving to increase this percentage. By adopting this sustainable printing method, we underscore our commitment to environmental stewardship, ensuring that each print is as kind to the planet as it is high in quality. Choose Displays 2 Go for your needs and join us in making a positive difference for our environment.

minimising waste

No Waste, No Worries

One of the standout features of dye sublimation printing is its zero-waste approach. Traditional printing processes often involve significant amounts of water, which can result in harmful runoff that can find its way into our waterways. Dye sublimation, however, eliminates this concern entirely by using no water at any stage of the printing process. This means not a single drop of waste ends up in our precious water sources. By adopting dye sublimation printing, we ensure sustainability is at the core of our printing operations, protecting the environment while delivering high-quality prints. At Displays 2 Go, this commitment to eco-friendly practices underscores our dedication to a cleaner, healthier planet for everyone.

Tech Simplicity

Mass Production Made Easy

From a technical standpoint, dye sublimation printing offers straightforward setup and workflow administration. This simplicity translates into the convenience and advantage of mass production. Whether you're printing a handful of items or a bulk order the process remains consistently efficient, contributing to reduced resource consumption and operational costs. At Displays 2 Go, we harness this efficiency to ensure timely delivery without compromising on quality or sustainability. By streamlining the printing process, we minimise waste and optimise resource allocation, making our production not only faster but also more environmentally responsible.

A Scientific Marvel

Sublimation Process Unveiled

Let's delve into the science behind this innovative technique a bit more. The sublimation process, which is the backbone of our dye sublimation printing at Displays 2 Go, is a marvel of modern technology. During this process, heat and pressure are applied to convert solid dye particles directly into a gaseous state, bypassing the liquid phase entirely. This transformation ensures the dyes penetrate the substrate thoroughly, resulting in vibrant, durable prints that stand the test of time. Besides delivering exceptional print quality, this process carries significant environmental benefits. By avoiding the liquid phase, we eliminate the need for water, thus contributing to water conservation and reducing the risk of water pollution. Furthermore, the elimination of solvents and harmful chemicals from the process means fewer emissions and a smaller carbon footprint. At Displays 2 Go, we are committed to leveraging this advanced, eco-friendly technology to produce stunning visual displays while protecting our planet for future generations.

Locked and Loaded

Pores, Dye, and Fabric Bonding

During sublimation, the application of high temperature opens up the pores of the fabric. This is where the true magic of print transformation happens. The dye molecules move into the open pores and bond tightly with the fabric particles. As the fabric starts to cool down, the pores close gradually, ensuring the dye particles are securely and permanently embedded within the fibres. This natural locking mechanism ensures the prints maintain their vibrant colours, won't fade, move, or wash away, thereby greatly enhancing the longevity and durability of the final product. At Displays 2 Go, we take full advantage of this innovative process to deliver high-quality, long-lasting prints that meet the highest standards of excellence while contributing to environmental sustainability.

long lasting

Recycled PET based Polyester for extra strength

Displays 2 Go utilizes polyester, most often produced from recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate), to achieve exceptional results in fabric dye sub printing. Recycled PET offers numerous benefits, such as strength, durability, and excellent colour retention, making it ideal for high-quality prints. Being more durable means, it needs to be reprinted and reproduced less frequently. It also squahes down well so costs less to package up and move around from event to event.

By transforming recycled PET into polyester, we create a fabric that enhances print sharpness and vibrancy and aligns with our commitment to sustainability. This eco-friendly approach helps reduce environmental impact while ensuring our prints are visually stunning and long-lasting.
