Dye-Migration is dye from a sublimated fabric bleeding through and dyeing a heat transferred design. Since Polyester is the only fabric that is gets its color from the sublimation process, it’s the only fabric that you’ll see migrate. Dye-Migration should not be confused with opacity. In the world of garment decoration, opacity refers to a heat transfer blocking out the color of the dark garment where as migration is the dye of the fabric coming through and becoming a part of the transfer.
So HOW DO YOU SOLVE DYE-MIGRATION? Simply by using the right product. Standard heat transfers may not block migration. If you run in to an angry polyester that doesn’t like being transferred on to, you can use the Poli-Tape Flex BLOCKOUT for single color vinyl cut transfer.
Please see the above photo for what migration looks like and how much a difference using the correct media makes. The fabric this material is applied to is one of the popular performance wear garments.
