The company’s new update is meant to provide further support for fashion designers struggling to connect with the appropriate sublimation printers, and other necessary resources, to create their clothing lines. Fashion Index aims to take the guesswork out of this process by featuring detailed business profiles for hundreds of sublimation printers, as well as digital fabric printers, dye houses, factories, and wash facilities, among others.

Emerging fashion designers may find sublimation printing to be a resourceful choice for class and durability, especially when creating their debut clothing line. In sublimation printing the ink essentially becomes part of the fabric, so the design will last as long as the garment does. In order to achieve vibrant colors the fabric needs to be 100% polyester. This technique can help to showcase designs with class, style, and durability. Sublimation printing tends to be more costly than other printing techniques, however, so finding a printer who meets a designer’s production volume, budgetary, and quality needs is crucial to avoid overspending.

On Fashion Index, designers can create a no-cost user account to get access to hundreds of sublimation printer profiles that include a business overview, a list of areas of expertise, partnership history, and apparel category experience. Once a designer identifies a sublimation printer that meets their criteria, they can reach out to the company directly through Fashion Index.
