Decorating sublimated jerseys, such as those for motocross, can be a challenge. The dyes in the fabric can make a simple task like adding a name and number to the jersey a nightmare. Since sublimated jerseys are created by heating up the fabric so that the inks can dye the fibers, you have to be careful when decorating these garments with a heat press so that the dyes don’t end up making it into your design (or onto your heat press).
One way to keep the dyes from migrating is to use a sub-block or metallic heat transfer material that will block the dyes from coming through. In this video, Josh Ellsworth will show you how to decorate 4 different motocross jerseys from start to finish and start making more money.
