X-Men Giant Size Retro Sublimated T-Shirt
Made from 65% Polyester and 35% Cotton, this light, slate blue t-shirt features a faded image based on the cover to Giant Size X-Men #1! Oh, and there's Magneto, too. Not sure how he weaseled his way in there, but......well, he must have made a good argument for it. Anyway, this X-Men tee has been put through the Sublimation process, making the print of each tee slightly unique and completely freakin' awesome! All variations are part of the process and are intended to make this tshirt one of a freakin' kind! Now, what's all this noise about this here "Sublimation effect" I'm speaking of? Well...The basic dye sublimation process uses special heat-sensitive dyes to print graphics and text onto special transfer paper. The paper is then placed on a "sublimatable" item and both are placed into a heat press. When the heating/printing cycle is completed, the image on the paper has been transferred to the item and has actually reformed into or underneath the coated surface. Run your finger across the surface of a sublimation printed plate, mug, or even a t-shirt or any coated product and you will feel nothing. This is much different than This is much different than what you would expect from a "heat transfer" or iron-on, and a traditionally screen printed t-shirt. This X-Men tee is a soft, high quality t-shirt one par with Junk food tees, so make sure you snag one of these limited edition garments before......Magneto does. I mean, the guy just shows up and does what he pleases. Selfish Sandy!
These are not your typical shirts; sublimation is a viable and durable solution to the industry standard of ink jet heat transfers. The sublimation process takes a large sheet of ink soaked paper heated to ridiculous temperatures which causes the ink to literally bind to the fabric. This causes the shirt's image to become amazingly resilient to the ravages of time!
Unfortunately, the drawback to this fantastic technique are small imperfections generally around the armpit, seams, and stretched spots on the shirt. It is something that is intrinsic with this process but it makes each shirt wholly unique!

I'm 5'11'' 240 lbs This shirt is VERY snug - I ordered a XL. The only bad thing about this is that Magneto is Pink, yeah, he is. Everything else looks right on, and the blue print behind the picture is neat to look at. This shirt gets +1 Star for having Storm.
The t-shirt came on time and was exactly what it should have been. The cotton is super soft and comfy.
