Video Tutorial on how to use our guitar strap designer
How is the image applied to the guitar strap?
We utilize state-of-the-art digital printing technology to produce high-quality, full-color images on your polyester guitar strap. Our process involves a specialized dye sublimation technique, which ensures that your image is not only vibrant and long-lasting, but also resistant to wear and tear. Whether you're sweating, washing, or spilling on your strap, the print will remain in tact and as vibrant as ever.
This advanced printing method sets our guitar straps apart from others on the market, making them not only beautiful, but also highly functional. So go ahead, play your heart out, and never worry about ruining your image again!
What is dye sublimation?
Dye sublimation is a method of printing images and text onto a material using heat and pressure. This process is especially useful for printing designs onto polyester materials, such as polyester guitar straps. When printing onto polyester, the solid sublimation ink turns into a gas and penetrates the surface fibers, bonding the image onto the material. This results in a permanent and durable design that will not crack, fade, or peel.
To produce a design on a polyester guitar strap using dye sublimation, the image is first printed onto special transfer paper using specialized sublimation inks. The printed image is then placed onto the polyester strap and subjected to heat and pressure, causing the dye to sublimate and embed into the surface.
Dye sublimation allows for high-quality and long-lasting results, producing vibrant, full-color images with a large color gamut. This makes it a popular choice for printing designs onto polyester guitar straps, as well as other promotional products and sports uniforms.
It is important to note that not all materials can be printed using dye sublimation. The surface to be decorated must be made of a polyester or polycarbonate material that allows the dye to penetrate and bond with the fibers. Additionally, the transfer paper and inks used in dye sublimation must be of high quality to ensure accurate and consistent results.
Dye sublimation is a versatile and effective method of printing designs onto polyester materials, such as polyester guitar straps. With its ability to produce high-quality and long-lasting results, it is a popular choice for a wide range of applications, including promotional products and sports uniforms.

Important Considerations for Your Custom Guitar Strap Design
When creating your custom guitar strap design, it's essential to keep a few key factors in mind to ensure the best possible results. Firstly, make sure to delete the guitar strap template layer from your art file once your design is complete. This will allow us to add the necessary over-bleed for printing and die cutting. Instructions for this process can be found in the template itself.
Additionally, it is important to save all files at a resolution of 300dpi. This will ensure that your design is of the highest quality and will look sharp and vibrant on your custom guitar strap. By following these simple guidelines, you can rest assured that your custom guitar strap will come out just as you envisioned it.
