Sublimation

We're switching gears a bit with this post.  While we focus our business on dance and fitness, we are, at the heart of things, a printing company.  We love new ideas, new methods, and custom work.  Because we realize that not all custom work will be hundreds of pieces, we have been working on perfecting sublimation printing in our shop, in order to offer small run orders at great prices. Who better to make products for than our favorite 5 year old, who is also a dinosaur enthusiast and happens to have 2 Valentines parties this week.

So what is sublimation printing?  In technical terms, sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. (Just like dry ice.) The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time.  So, we are able to use a special sublimation printer to create the image.  When heat and pressure are applied, the ink bonds with the fibers to dye the garment for a super soft feel.

So, here's how we did it:

We can't wait for our little dude to wear these to his parties this week.  And we can't wait to hear from you about your awesome ideas and what we can make for you. Email us for pricing and more info sales@orangearrow.com

This past weekend we had the honor of creating custom dri-fit shirts for the team over at Ellipse Fitness, North.  Saturday was their 4 hour fitness marathon and fundraiser.  The lengthy workout included kickboxing, cardio, stretching, TRX, strength training and more.  And even better than all of the calories burned, is how much money and awareness was raised for local domestic abuse shelters, education, and prevention.
