Stitch Rowing are specialists in dye sublimation rowing clothing
Dye-sublimation printing is a digital printing technology using full colour artwork that works with polyester and polymer-coated substrates. Also referred to as digital sublimation, the process is commonly used for decorating apparel.
The process uses the science of sublimation, in which heat and pressure are applied to a solid, turning it into a gas through an endothermic reaction without passing through the liquid phase.
So what does this mean?
Well basically ... If we can get your design on to a computer screen theres a very good chance that we will be able to turn it into a piece of rowing clothing for you.
