  • Can you print on any object I bring to you?
    Sorry, we can't print on your cotton t-shirt or ceramic mug. Our items are specially treated to be imprinted with a long-lasting dye that provides the best value for keepsakes. We can bling almost anything, though!
  • Why do you charge what you do?
    Every business has overhead costs, and our employees deserve to make a living wage.
  • Are you open on the weekends?
    Currently, we are closed on the weekends to allow our staff time with their families.
  • Are you hiring?
    Not at the moment.
  • What is 'sublimation?'
    Technically, 'sublimation' is the word scientists use to describe the process by which a material transitions directly from solid state to gaseous state without becoming liquid in between. In our Earth's natural environment, sublimation happens very rarely because the atmospheric pressures and temperatures which allow us to be comfortable are not extreme enough to allow sublimation. One example of such a happenstance is when ice in Antarctica is very cold but is adjacent to darker stone which absorbs bright sunlight and reflects radiant heat at the ice. The combination of the relatively low air pressure, extreme cold, and the energy of the heated rock excites water molecules to spring directly away from the ice as evaporation without melting first. You can also see this effect when you watch dry ice, or carbon dioxide ice, sublimate directly from a solid to a gas. Ink sublimation on polyester works the same way. A professional prints liquid ink onto special sublimation paper. The ink dries (becomes solid). The professional secures the surface of the object to be imprinted and the paper together at a specific level of pressure to ensure perfect contact, and heats the paper and the object to dangerous temperatures for a predetermined amount of time. The ink sublimates; the heat turns it directly from a dried solid ink to a gaseous ink at a high temperature. The polyester molecules provide a perfect bonding point for the ink molecules, and almost all of the ink transfers to the object, becoming a beautiful gift for your loved one :-)
