The resistance that hardwood gives your child will help strengthen their teeth and roots. 
Hardwood has natural 
antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that kill contaminants rather than letting them sit on the surface. 
*A small amount of oil (olive oil, avocado oil, etc) or bee’s wax can be rubbed onto wooden beads or teethers if wood looks dried out. 
YES! We inspect our teethers prior to shipping to our customers. 
For the safety of your child, teethers/teething rings should always be used under parental supervision. 
Do not allow your baby or child to sleep with a teething ring.   Inspect regularly and discontinue use if signs of damage or wear are noticed.

If it is a quality digital image, I can work with it!
For the best results:
  • Bright images work best (shadows will appear black)
  • Crisp and clear images have stunning results
  • Large file sizes (1MB or more) are needed for enlarged images to keep image quality

YES! Use an App (such as Photomyne) to create a high quality digital image of the print or hand drawn photo for me to use.

Some of the product dimensions require cropping but digital proofs are sent for your approval before the product is made.  You have final say in the design.

Yes!  We will both vinyl cuts and application. 
If you have a special design or project in mind, please contact us!

HTV is Heat Transfer Vinyl.  It is a vinyl that adheres to the top of fabric or a hard surface when heat and pressure is applied.

HTV can be applied to fabrics and solid surfaces. 
We are able to work with both light and dark fabrics / surfaces.

Yes.  Solid white or simple two or three color designs are possible. 
I cannot print a complex image with white in HTV….yet 🙂

HTV sits on top of the surface so it will fade, crack or peel over time and will extended use.

HTV images are dishwasher safe.  However they will crack, fade and peel over time.

Vinyl cut outs ARE NOT dishwasher safe.  The vinyl will peel off from the heat.

Note: Aluminum product manufacturers recommend hand washing items such as water bottles and travel mugs.

Wash in cool or cold water and tumble dry on low.  This will prevent images from fading. 
Warm or hot water will fade the ink. 
Sublimation is a process that involves printing a design onto a sheet of specialty paper (sublimation paper) and pressing it onto a polyester/ polyester coated product with a heat press.
Sublimation printed products are long-lasting and feature distinct colors and high-resolution quality. 
The best designed graphic apparel, home décor, and advertising displays use the dye sublimation process to achieve vibrant, everlasting graphics.

Sublimation images can be put on many different products with a poly-coating , such as: 
     – coffee mugs / travel mugs / wine tumblers / water bottles
     –  stone slates / photo panels / puzzles / piggy banks
     –  blankets / clothing / masks / towel / bags 
Other popular products are keychains / mouse pads / pop sockets / coaster / jewellery Contact us if you have a specific item in mind!  

No.  Sublimation images won’t crack or wear after several uses and the visuals will last as long as needed.

Sublimation does not print in white.   White tones come from the material being printed on. 
Sublimation images can be printed on to special heat transfer vinyl and then applied to darker fabric.
No.  Sublimation will fade if applied directly onto poly cotton blends and will wash out of cotton.  
However,
a special heat transfer material that allows vibrant sublimation images to be applied to cotton & poly-cotton blends.  
Ceramic sublimation products are dishwasher safe. 
The images will not fade, crack or peel.  
Aluminum product manufacturers recommend hand washing items such as water bottles and travel mugs.
Wash in cool or cold water and tumble dry on low.  This will prevent images from fading. 
Warm or hot water will fade the ink. 
The difference is the sublimation ink.  When the ink is heated, it turns from a solid to a gas that embeds itself into the polyester fabric/coating. When it cools, it goes back to a solid and becomes a permanent part of the fabric/coating.
This means that your transferred design adds no additional layer on top, so there’s no difference in feeling between the printed image and the rest of the fabric/product surface. 
This also means that the transfer is incredibly durable, and under normal conditions, the images produced will last as long as the product itself.
