Sublimation Printing in Vietnam

Meet Paul, the owner of Un-Available sewing factory in Vietnam. He knows sublimation printing in Vietnam. I interviewed him in this video; we talked about starting a factory in Vietnam.

Paul does not do sublimation printing in house but he works with the best dye sublimation printing in Vietnam. I also know all the dye sublimation printers in Vietnam. Contact Paul or contact me for introductions.

Paul's factory makes contemporary fashion both knit and woven styles. Paul knows sublimation printing in Vietnam.

My name is Chris. I have been working in the Vietnam Garment Industry since 2008. My expertise is advising fashion start-ups and sourcing sublimation factories. I built this website to promote Paul and Vietnam. Read more about Paul below.

Best Sublimation Printer in Vietnam

Pol is the founder of Animatex sublimation printing in Vietnam. I moved to Vietnam in 2011 from Barcelona Spain to study under his father who is an expert in fabric dyeing. During 8 years working in Vietnamese sewing factories managing garment and fabric production he saw an opportunity to supply the local market with premium dye sublimation printing for both all over print and piece print. Pol did a lot of sublimation printing jobs for Paul at Un-Available.

Pol invested in one of the best Mimaki digital printers and learned how to maximize the efficiency of every step in his production. He perfected the ICC profiles in his European RIP software to maximize the use of Mimaki's high quality inks. Pol trained his calendaring staff to apply just the right pressure and temperature so that the prints popped out and very little ink was left behind on the paper.

Unfortunately Pol had to move back to Spain. Contact Pol in Spain to find out more about his sublimation printing in Vietnam experiences.

Read -> Learn -> Then contact the factory.

I wrote these books during my first few years (@ 2008) working in the Vietnam garment industry. I write about basic knowledge and insider tips that I learned - to share with you.

If you are just starting out and need a jump start then I recommend you read my books before contacting factories.

For example, it is critical to know basic things like what is the difference between woven and knit fabric; what is different about viscose, rayon, tencel, modal and hemp; and what is the Acceptable Quality Level system?

I became interested in Sublimation in Vietnam when I was asked to find a good sublimation factory in 2011. Visitec hired me to scout out large format sublimation factories for their sublimated workwear. I did not find any good sublimation printers in Vietnam whose price and quality was acceptable. Over the last five years I have visited almost every sublimation supplier and have found two I recommend: Komax and Viet Duc. Bottom line is that sublimation in Vietnam on a large scale is just coming of age.

Paul is definitely on the forefront of sublimation printing in Vietnam. Paul used to have his own digital printer in his factory doing large format DTG. Paul sold his machine and now outsources everything.

What type of garment are you interested in? Sublimation for sports garments like bike racing jerseys? Or fashionable ladies wear like the pictures below?

What is large format sublimation printing?

Sublimation printing is a printing method for transferring images onto a polyester fabric. Sublimation refers to a process where a substance moves from a solid to a gas state without ever being in a liquid state. The ink is printed onto a transfer paper or fabric and then goes through a heating unit running the inks through a heat-press making the colors "POP". The polyester fibers open up at high temperatures allowing the gas (formerly the ink) to sublimate into them, the fibers actually become the color. The printed fabric can be washed or ironed without color fading.

Large format refers to the width of the fabric. There are many sizes of printers that have widths ranging from 0.8 meter to 4 meters. Many printing companies in Vietnam have the smaller printers but there is only one large format sublimation printer in Vietnam that can offer 1.8 m width.
