Dye-sub prints with
water-based inks at CCS:

  1. The textile fibers are unlocked by heat to absorb the colors.
  2. The colors become an integral part of the fabric during fixation.
  3. Fibers are dyed.

Imprint
(e.g. UV print):

  1. The textile is soaked with pigments.
  2. The pigments' solvents evaporate and leave behind a color coating on the fabric.
