Gifts & T-Shirts
Personalized gifts are popular gift items that lend themselves to engraving, and engraving is an important function in our business. Click Gifts & T-Shirts above for examples, then click Catalogs for endless possibilities for personalized gifts. Better yet, come into the store, walk past the "Awards Showroom," and make your choice, first-hand. After that, ask Betsy to engrave it to your liking, free of extra charge when the gift is purchased from the store.
Another specialization (other than engraving) featured in the store that is rather unique and delightful are gifts using the technique of sublimationa process which results in a nearly permanent, high resolution, full color print. For example, Betsy's sublimation printer may be used for photographic prints, ID cards, sublimated t-shirts, directional signage, license plates and many other uses on materials such as aluminum, brass, steel, plastic, card, paper, or fabric.
Sublimation is a computer printer process that uses heat to transfer dye onto materials such as a plastic, card, paper, aluminum or fabric. Many sublimation printers are used for photographic prints, ID cards, and so on. The end result of the sublimation process is a nearly permanent, high resolution, full color print. The prints will not crack, fade or peel from the item under normal conditions.
Cloth material of poly/synthetic nature is permanently dyed in the sublimation process so it can be washed without damaging the quality of the image. Photo blankets, scarves, school lunch bags, stadium seats---all can be personalized and uniquely your own.
A small list of items that can be sublimated include: aluminum, brass and steel identification tags, serialized data plates, instrument panels, push button/relay plates, directional signage, tow hitch plates, license plates, ADA / Braille signage, full color name tags (with logos), room numbering, corporate gifts / awards, trophy plates / plaques.
