  • Tell us about how you got involved with decorated apparel?
  • What decoration processes do you offer at Shockwaves?
  • You’ve been doing some interesting things with sublimation, and you don’t seem to be locked into 100% polyester garments. (Discuss your work on blends, etc.)
  • Along the lines of sublimation, share with our listeners how you’re sublimating on sequins.
  • Tell us about some of the multi-media combinations you’ve been building in your shop.
  • In your seminar you told about a customer who wanted to foil on a ribbed ladies top, and I perked up wondering how you accomplished that task. Talk a little about how you made that happen.
