Sublimation printing on sports tees

The famous luxury brand Dior contact us to order some technical t-shirts for the last semi-marathon of Paris. The example we bring you today give us a fine excuse to talk about sublimation printing on sports tees.

Printed technical t-shirts are the best choice for any kind of sports events, just like marathons, tournaments or races. And if you decide to print them by sublimation, your tees will remain 100% breathable. How can be that possible?

Easy: sublimation printing is the process of transferring ink to a fabric using heat. The design is first printed on special paper, which is placed on the t-shirt. Then heat is applied, allowing the ink to become part of the tee, so the design will never fade.


There’s a few advantages if you want to create sublimated tees:

  • No screen set-up fees.
  • Unlimited colours.
  • Ideal for photographic images.
  • Print will not fade or peel.
  • Indistinguishable to the touch.

We can only use sublimation on 100% polyester white tees, like Montecarlo t-shirt, which is indeed our best-seller sport tee:


As you can see from the pictures below, these personalised sports t-shirts are full of spectacular colours!


However, if you have a limited budget to customise technical tees you can always choose screen-printing or CAD-cut vinyl, in case you want to put different names or numbers on your t-shirts.

If you have any doubts about the printing technique or what sports tees to choose, get in touch with our helping sales staff who will be glad to help you!
