Dye sublimation:

Dye sublimation or dye sub, is a specialised printing process which locks colour into polyester fabrics. Whereas ‘direct solvent printing’, commonly known as inkjet, only coats the textile, dye sub actually dyes the fibres. This results in far greater stability, durability and vibrancy of colour.
The cheaper inkjet method may look good initially but it will begin to fade in daylight and can be susceptible to cracking, dye sub will do neither of these things.

Dye sub lends itself to photographic reproduction with high colour saturation and sharpness. It is water and solvent proof, has no odour and is even machine washable.

The canvas prints for sale from this website are stretched on high quality pine from sustainable sources.
