Custom Photo Blankets
These 50x60-inch silky-soft polyester blankets are even warmer than they look. A great gift for holidays and special occasions, these fully dye sublimated blankets are built to impress. They are made from extremely soft and plush velveteen fleece with a nice and warm thickness. We print your image as a full bleed (edge to edge printing) onto the front, leaving the reverse side white. The edges of the blanket are stitched for strength and the thread is sublimated in the same colors as the blanket.
Perfect for keeping warm on cool nights watching movies and feeling cozy, at sports games and events, or just hanging out with family - no matter what you are doing, your favorite photos will keep you warm and proud!
The blankets are washable and very durable. The photos are sublimated into the fabric and is not a surface print, meaning it wil not fade, crack or peel. Machine wash separately in cold water. When drying, use delicate cycle and tumble dry on low. Do not bleach. Do not iron, press with heat or dry clean. Shipped folded and poly-bagged inside a box.
Our custom fabric printing is done using a special two step dye-sublimation process that saturates the material with ink rather than printing directly onto the fabric. Dye sublimation inks consist of a dispersant dye suspended in a liquid solvent (like water) and activated by a large press that uses heat and pressure to enact the sublimation process.
The images are initially printed on a specially coated carrier paper, and then transferred onto the blanket in the heat press, which operates at approximately 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The simultaneous heat and pressure vaporizes the ink, and that vapor, or gas, is instantly absorbed by the blanket material’s polymers. After exiting the heat press, your blanket’s fibers are infused with a permanent high resolution, full-color graphic.
The finished blanket size is 50 x 60 inches, and it can be printed in either direction, vertical or horizontal. However, this product requires one inch of bleed on all four sides to print correctly and avoid any white showing across the edges. Ideally, your file should be constructed as outlined and shown below:
- Final File size: 52 x 62 inches
- Background Bleed Area: Extends all the way to the edge, at full 52 x 62 inch size
- Texts and Logos: Any text, logos, or objects that should not be cut off, needs to be placed within the safe zone of 4 inches off of any edge (do not extend over 48 x 58 inch size)
