My EVH custom LiteAF 46L Curve.
I had to send him the image file in the proper dimensions. I found the pattern online and used image editing software to enlarge it without loss of quality. For the 46L, it was 40”x26” and 300 dpi.Mar 9, 2021 at 4:59 pm #3703468Rex SandersBPL Member
Not that many years ago, dye-sublimation prints on paper were notorious for fading rapidly in sunlight. And dyes vs pigments are still a hot topic for archival print nerds.
Hope the dyes and processes have improved for LiteAF and related DCF printing companies – because the results are stunning.
Maggie – most of my backpacking wardrobe is sky blue, so you’re not alone in tending toward monochromaticity. Luckily, a few days of dirt and sweat tends to fix that :-)
