Onesies - why not cotton?

Thanks for asking!

In order for me to put an image onto a cotton shirt/onesie/surface, I need to use HTV or vinyl. HTV Is absolutely fantastic for making images and there are SO many things you can do with it! However, at some point, and especially if washed in hot water/on a sanitation cycle, the HTV will start to lift off the surface. And as a mom, I can’t tell you how many times I had to wash my daughter’s onesies on the sanitation cycle. Or how many times a onesie slipped into a hot-wash load of laundry while I was just trying to stay awake. Being a mom is tough!

Sublimation printing, on the other hand, will never crack or peel, even if you rip the material to shreds. The “catch” of sublimation is that you need polyester fabric  and it has to be white or light colored to see the ink. Baby onesies are often white so you can see if the baby has something strange going on, and polyester fabrics are SO much better than they used to be! Seriously, if you feel the polyester onesies I’d be you will be impressed. They also are great for sun protection, moisture wicking, and easy to layer! In all, I find that using sublimation for babies is the right choice for me and my business.
