Hi! What's new?
I'm happy to have something new to show you! I finally had time to successfully photograph my new fabric hoop art prints.
As many of you know I have a part-time job working at a company that specializes in making dye-sublimated fabric graphics for trade show displays. I had the production department print some of my most popular designs onto a soft knit fabric. I then stretched the prints into wooden embroidery hoops, creating an inexpensive but attractive way to create ready to hang prints. I must admit I'm happy with the results!
During dye-sublimation, heat is used to infuse the ink into the fabric, which makes the finished product vivid, sharp and very resistant to fading. It's an incredibly durable and versatile process. At work, we make all sorts of things out of the fabric we print including enormous trade show displays, and hanging signs, table cloths, flags, floor rugs, etc. Anything you can make with fabric - we do!
"What you love" is the first fabric print I've listed on Etsy, but expect many more in the near future! Wahoo!
And.....To get you in the holiday shopping mood, I'm offering 20% off any purchase in my shoppe for the next month. Use code EARLY20 at checkout. But hurry - This offer expires November 20th!
Ta-Ta for now!
