Update

Alright, I've managed to get both mousepads done and I'm in the process of finishing the white shirts. Next it'll be the blacks. Sorry for the delay everyone. Luckily I was able to just put another plug on the end of the heat press. Apparently it wasn't the unit itself that was the issue. Hopefully, I'll be able to get to the blacks directly and be able to get it all out to everyone. Thanks for understanding during my delay.

I' like a black mouse pad with the TN flag one, cool background.

I can do white, I can't do black. Black is used for sublimation printing, not for pressing.

Would you like a white one?

Darn, I was hoping it was like a T-shirt, just pressing the pattern on a black mouse pad.

It is like a T-Shirt, but the fabric that is used is different on a white mousepad versus a black one.

I know, I was kinda disappointed about that as well, but apparently that is an industry standard as I have checked other wholesalers then just the one that I deal with and they are all the same.

I just don't have the equipment for sublimation.

This is what the white one looks like:



You also have to realize that the white areas of the pattern are only white due to the white background. When you print those out, there is no ink for the white color. So I'm actually having to add just a smidge of off white in order for it to print for the dark ones. I have to wait a bit though before I can get it on the dark shirts, that's why I was trying to get all my whites out of the way.

Tell ya what, I'll hold out until I can get a windshield sunscreen, I think it would look great on one of those fold outs for my 73.
