Sublimation Guide



Creating your sublimated gear is a collaborative process between Boathouse and you.
Your active participation in the process is vital for a successful outcome.

Our graphic artists will create a digital illustration of your sublimated style for your review and approval. We allow up to two reworks or revisions per order. Manufacturing will not begin until we have your written approval. Delays in approval could result in delays of your gear delivery.

If you provide art for logos or other design elements for your gear, it must be in Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or (.eps) format in order to avoid custom logo design fees. All copyright logos must be provided in this format.

Using our stock sublimation tools is the quickest, easiest and most economical way to create your gear:

  • Stock Sub Designs are found next to each style in our catalog. Additional designs may also be available. Your Boathouse Sales and Customer Service Staff can give you complete information for your particular styles.
  • Jump Start Sublimation Playground® patterns can be found on page 41 of our catalog. This is a great way to add a semi-custom look to your gear with no additional art creation charges
  • Our stock sublimation colors can also be found on page 41 of our catalog. We can usually match custom colors for an additional cost. However, some custom colors like metallics cannot be sublimated. If we cannot match your custom color, we will advise the best alternative.
  • Stock Symbols, Layouts and Colors can be found on the and webpages. If you have the time and the budget, our Design Studio can create a unique and Completely Custom design for you. See below for more details.



Boathouse specializes in custom sublimation and our design studio is ready to bring your imagination into reality. We can create custom colors, logos and sublimation designs for your team. Custom sublimation designs created by Boathouse for you, will be your proprietary design and will not be made available for use by other teams.
A Boathouse graphic artist will be assigned to your project and will work with you directly through the design process. Our fees includes one (1) revision. Please allow 10 days for any custom artwork creation. Also allow extra time for art approval and manufacturing for all Completely Custom orders. Manufacturing of your custom order cannot begin until we have your written approval.
