FAQ: Why Sublimation?

Sublimation is popular for Ice Hockey because of the durable nature of the dye and the process involved. Traditional methods for apparel have included screen printing, direct to garments, heat press printing, and vinyl cutting. However, these methods all have major problems.

Screen printing has color limitations and the coats of the ink are heavier on the fabric. Although it’s a popular method, it doesn’t allow for detailed design or low volume. It also cracks with time and may peel.

Direct to Garments (DTG) has many of the same issues as screen printing. The ink is printed directly onto the fabric. DTG allows for more colors than screen printing. However, the ink typically fades and can show greater pixelation of the image.

Heat Press Printing provides greater complexity than the previously mentioned methods. However, the dye used is typically transparent and so this method doesn’t work on dark fabrics. It is also limited to printing across the entire garment.

Vinyl Cutting involves cutting the design out of a soft fabric and then sewing it onto the garment. Although attractive in design, it is seldom used for any type of sports apparel because of the multiple layers of clothing and the limited font types and letters that can be used with it.

Sublimation Is Best for Ice Hockey Uniforms

Sublimation is the preferred method of dye application for sports apparel. There are many reasons for this. First, the dye is applied through a high-tech heat & pressure process that literally fuses the ink with the fibers of the fabric.

The ink becomes part of the fabric!

As a result, sublimation apparel does not crack. It does not peel. It does not create heavier or thicker garments. The ink and the design wear exactly the same as the garment because it is part of the garment down to the microscopic level.

Sublimation offers unlimited colors, vivid details, and high-quality design. The entire garment can be printed, which means that the possibilities are endless.

Plus, because of the way it’s made, sublimation can be easily applied to a single garment. There aren’t additional fees for colors or minimum batch requirements.

  • Wear and tear is based on the garment, not the ink
  • Ink does not crack, peel, fade or rip
  • Unlimited colors
  • No minimum batch size (Single orders are available!)
  • Endless design possibilities
  • Great for contact sports
  • Ideal for aggressive, hard-hitting use

Killer Facts about Ice Hockey

Hey, Ice Hockey fans, did you know these fun facts about Ice Hockey?

  • In the early days of Ice Hockey, a frozen patty of cow poop was used as a puck. (Tough Guys!)
  • Slapshots often travel faster than a car! The record speed for a slapshot clocked at 118 miles an hour by Bobby Hull.
  • The StanleyCup has survived abandonment at the side of the road, being thrown into a swimming pool, thrown into a bonfire, and was lost on an airline flight. However, it’s been recovered and restored to be a symbol of excellence today.
  • Roy Woters was the shortest Ice Hockey player at 5 feet, 3 inches tall. He played 484 games from 1925 – 1937
  • The tallest player ever is Zdeno Chara at 6 feet, 9 inches tall. He currently plays for the Boston Bruins
  • In one Ice Hockey game, a player can lose 5-10 pounds! Most of the lost weight is water, which is why it’s so important for players to stay hydrated.
  • The greatest Ice Hockey prank occurred in 1974 when the Buffalo Sabres General Manager “drafted” a player who didn’t’ exist from a team that didn’t exist. GM Punch Imlach released a media statement that they had drafted Taro Tsujimoto from the Tokyo Kitanas. He did this to mock the slow drafting process of Hockey. No one realized the “fake” player until training camp started.
  • Throught the history of the Stanley Cup, 12 women have been included on the cup. All women have been owners or team executives.
  • Only twice has the Stanley Cup ever skipped a year: Once in 1917 for the flu epidemic and again in 2005 during the NHL lockout

  • In the event that both NHL goalies are injured, any goalie can be chosen to suit up. That includes fans!
  • In the USSR, bears were trained to play Ice Hockey for entertainment.
  • In 1930, a goalie, Abie Goldberry, accidentally caught fire when a puck hit some matches he had in his pocket. He was badly burned before his teammates put out the fire.
  • Only one time in NHL history has a game been canceled. It happened in March 1995 when rain caused the flooding of a river near the San Jose Sharks’ arena. This made the play too dangerous.
  • Every member of the Stanley Cup winning team gets a personal day with the cup. It has become a tradition for many of the players to eat out of the cup. Some of the foods that have been eaten out of the cup include cereal, meatballs, chicken wings, poutine, and ice cream.
