I'd never used sublimation dye before, and I was super impressed with how this blanket turned out! We had all kinds of gradients, bright colors, and deep blacks as well as small text and fine details on this blanket, and the quality of this process blew me away. Two minor things though... there is a black trim along the edge of the blanket. If you peel it back just a hair, you do see the original white of the blanket behind it since they can't dye that part of the surface (very minor and not a sticking point for us). Also, the backing is a really nice oxford cotton, which has its pros and cons. Pro: it will hold up way better and be machine washable as compared to a plastic backing that will crack over time. Con: it's not water proof, maybe somewhat water repellent. It may not be the ideal blanket to put down on wet grass, but again, not a sticking point for us! Love this blanket and ordered a whole bunch of them to give out at a tradeshow!
