Of all my favorite ways to make cool t-shirts here working at Coastal Business, I am especially partial to vinyl transfers. They’re light in hand, with great durability, and come in a wide variety of colors, textures, and even special effects to really make a t-shirt design POP at a customer. And when your mind is on your design, it’s nice to have a product like EasyWeed to take the additional guesswork out of creating your garment.
EasyWeed, the family of heat transfer vinyl by Siser, is a popular choice for apparel decorators. It’s simple to cut and apply, works well on a wide variety of fabric types, and appeals to customers due to its soft, thin properties. It’s also been around for quite awhile, so the company has earned a pretty good reputation in the industry for making a consistently performing product.

Whether you are looking for a new accent or a completely new decorating theme for your little one’s room, there are lots of great products here that can help! Being a graphic artist here at Coastal by day and a mommy in the evening, you can bet that my two children’s rooms are always changing as fast as their favorite fad or TV show is. Handmade touches like wall decals and blanket embellishments can give a personalized style to your child’s space.
Without lifting a paintbrush, PhotoTex is an affordable and easy to use self-adhesive wall material that can add flare and personality to walls and even floors. Simply design the graphic on your computer, print it out on the special PhotoTex material, and either cut by hand or with a vinyl cutter. Then peel and stick! True, he won’t be into outer space or monsters forever, but the material can be easily removed when he moves onto his next mission! This was a great touch for their nurseries especially when they transitioned to a big kid room.
When shopping around for starter kits, heat presses, transfers or more, you’ll run across a lot of companies that are willing to make a LOT of promises just to make the sale. Unfortunately, this means that when you finally receive your product and encounter any issues with it, you may be out of luck when it comes to technical support from the company you purchased it from.
Here at Coastal, we pride ourselves on offering exemplary technical support to our customers (and sometimes even other companies’ customers!) Whether it’s a simple question about the correct pressure to use when pressing a neck tie or something more difficult, like how to unclog a bulk sublimation system, we have an entire technical support team available from 8am through 6pm every weekday. You can reach us through the phone or through our live chat without delay. Continue reading “The Importance of Technical Support”
