I guess maybe sublimation-transfer on polyester.
Latex-inks are probably no good for clothes.
Are you looking to produce shirts?
As far as I know it's a special inkjet printing process with a special chemical and thermal treatment to fix the colors. It's funny, I've been cycling like crazy for years and never gotten down to this...
Thanks for the handy links guys, I guess I'll search for a local "Sublimination T-Shirt Printer".
Yes c,pfaffenbichler I want to produce a few shirts for my own business to wear myself.
The last 3 tops I have bought are all done with this process / silky material, non screen printed graphic and I am finding all Formula 1 merchandise shirts are pretty much done like this.
I like the cool silk feel too. I own these tops which are all sublimination process
Mylenium yes I'm also a cyclist and have found just about every special community ride I go in, a subliminted cycling shirt for the event is given to you as part of the ride, so I hope to eventually design my own cycling shirt one day, just got to find some good printers to hook up with that can do this for a reasonable price, I'll keep researching.
also guys, what Pantone color chart should I be using when working with textiles? Or does it vary printer to printer?
I think for those printing processes you best forget Pantone and ask the printshop if they recommend a specific CMYK-space or RGB-space.
