Dye Sublimation Printing and Laser Printing – Can Both Processes be Used to Print Cloth Fabric Banners?
Question: I was told by a vendor that dye sublimate printing is the same as laser printing. Is this true?
Answer: If by laser printing, they were referring to inkjet printing, the answer would be partially yes, but it’s a bit more complicated than that.
Inkjet printers, such as those manufactured by Mutoh, Roland, Mimaki, Canon, or Epson, among many others, are generally known to print such items as vinyl (PVC) banners, vinyl stickers, and even fabric that has been treated to accept ink.
