neoprene for dye sublimation

A small revolution is happening in the dye sub desktop community: neoprene.

Formerly used exclusively for deep sea diver wetsuits, neoprene had a “comeback” a few years ago when Patagonia┬« started selling eyeglass retainers and other sportsy beach items made from the spongy material, but the fact that the material will readily accept dye sublimation makes it ideal for the dye sub operator.

Cond├ę Systems, Inc. (http://www.conde.com) is the first dye sub supplier to take full advantage of this new material. They are offering laptop cases in three sizes, coin purses, golf club covers, eyeglass cases and you can even get the material by the yard. Every day they come out with new items. The latest are cellphone cases in two sizes.

Imprinting neoprene is as easy as printing tee shirts. Some of the items have zippers and they need to be protected from the heat press, but most of the items are very quickly printed. The material itself is easy to sew, so you can imprint it before or after assembling your own project. A light pressure keeps it from becoming too flattened but it may be that you would like it to be a thin item, in which case you would use heavier pressure to make the material as flat as possible.

Note that the neoprene will also accept heat transfer application, but the feel of the transfer would be noticeable and the image would likely crack or peel as the stretchy neoprene undergoes usage. The dye sublimation process is ideal for neoprene printing as the dyes sink into the material and the images resist damage from normal use.

Look for many new exciting products and clothing to be introduced made of neoprene. The fashion industry will discover this versatile material and accessory items will be created that make use of this durable material. Not just for swimming any more..
