What do you need to know. sometimes the worst case scenario is you don't know what you need to know? But then again neither does anyone else, are you starting to print? are you an artist? are you just a girl walking down the street... sometimes if you post specifics you get specifics, otherwise you just get jerks like me

I do dye sublimation printing but on different mediums, like skateboard decks, rugs etc. I thought this would be a good place to gather info on whats going on in this industry and just get random information. Its interesting to read the posts.

Re: dye sub skate board decks

Sweet! We don't use rice paper, but same principal.
Was yours printed digitally or offset? You really can get more punch for your dollar with 4 color process, that you just can't do with screen printing. Thanks for the info!

We screenprinted it.. but if 4C process is your bag you ought to look into having someone like Dowling Graphics In clearwater florida make transfers for you, not economical for short runs but if you get up in the 100+ area you will be suprised how reasonable it can be...
