Let me know what you think about it. This is the very first one right off the press(in every sense of the phrase).

I'll have to get back to you on that. I'm going to need to add a little color in the background of the design, so that way I'm sublimating the entire tag. The side that you put the design on is coated with a special coating that looks like a glossy white finish. It just looks better if you do what's called "flooding" the substrate to cover up, in this case, the tag except in areas that are white due to the design(like in this case the stars and stripes and a couple of portions of the trucks). I'm going to try to do something like a light grey or something like that and see how it looks and to try not to "conflict" with the actual design as well.

Which one would you want(TN or US flag)? When I go to run one, I'll do the one that you would want.

Well, I was going to already have one pressed to show all y'all. I think I'm going to go with an alum. gradient background, I think it's light enough that it shouldn't conflict with the darker grey around the letters for the US flag version. However, the rest of my equipment came in and I spent the better part of 3 hrs putting it together. I'll post a couple of pics after I get something to eat first.

I will also be able to do coffee mugs and steins as well. I'll try to have some type of mock up done on the mugs as soon as I can. I don't have steins yet as they are fairly pricey and I wanted to make sure if people were interested in them before I did anything on those.

That's the new toy. The mug press is the white one on the left.

I'm going to try to press a license plate this evening. Hopefully, I'll have pictures tonight or tomorrow morning for y'all to see.
