  • Setting up clothing templates for sublimated printing


    I'm a graphic designer with a couple years experience with some large format printing and I've recently started working for a clothing company. Some of our higher end items are dye-sublimated workout clothes. Designing and setting up the templates is an extremely time consuming process for my company, as we're still very small. A big portion of my job involves coming up with the design mockups, laying them out in actual print files for each size (small, medium, large, etc), and then laying out the print file that contains enough of each size for each order.

    My boss spoke with a representative from another company that does this very small time, and they mentioned having software that takes the design, creates a 3D mockup of it, and will lay out the files for each size. I realize this is a very involved question, but I was wondering if anyone might be able to point me in the direction of software that could achieve something like this?

    Thank you very much for any help you can provide!

      Is it accurate to say that you need culminate financially savvy limited time Garment Printing pieces of clothing? At that point Dye Subliminal is the ideal choice for you. In this strategy, the color is warmed until it changes into a gas. It then diffuses into the strands of the material themselves, and cements, implanting the print picture into the texture.

          There was a link associated with your last comment that wasn't necessary. The forum software does not allow us to remove a link without replacing it with another, so we use Zombo.

        Seems to me you'll have a much better chance of getting the name of the software from them^ than you will here.
        I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.

            The stock industry used to be an ideal place for us introverts, but that's in turmoil these days. I made a decent side-income, never had to interact with anyone, and money was automatically transferred...

            Comment on DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DPI & PPI???
            I think Hank just made an error on this one. He seemingly understood what he was talking about and would go into all kinds of detail. Here's are a couple of examples:

            Comment on DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DPI & PPI???
            Some print machines have variable DPI. Most of the wide format machines have a draft mode (crap) somewhere around 300dpi, a Production mode (which is still garbage IMO) usually under 600dpi, a Fine Quality...

            The site is blocked where I work. I suspect the software behind the blocking identifies it as being deviant. Admittedly, some of the stuff I've seen there sort of fits that description anyway.
