A&E JANUARY 2019 • 41 Sublimation a quick but dramatic change, move the sublimated pieces you sell to a new spot. If you have a single, large piece, switch it out for a few smaller pieces. If you have things arranged in a themed style such as a farm theme, rearrange them without the focus being on a theme. Things might not look perfectly placed to you, but sometimes that is all it takes to catch a customer's eye. STARTING SUBLIMATION Maybe you are still thinking about get- ting started with sublimation, but you are concerned about where you would market your items. Besides the more popular places online like Etsy and Facebook, why not start with home parties — invite family and friends to showcase your products cre- ated with sublimation and take your first orders. There are so many options, so get decorating! Mugs sublimated in a GeoKnight DK3 mug press at 400 F for 5 minutes; coasters pressed at 400 F for 50 seconds. A&E READY TO RETIRE?
