Will it take them much longer to do than you? I taught a couple of our staff how to do it. It can take them a few tries, but I feel anyone can do it as long as they have a good teacher and are willing to learn. When you teach your crew, do not just tell them what to do. Explain to them why they are doing it. If they do not do it the way shown, explain what can go wrong. It is important to explain everything to them to be safe and maintain the look of the design. Is it cost effective to reproduce? Normally this would be one of the first things I talk about with any process, but since it was brand-new, and we had never done it before, I knew We had to put our tearaway backing on our hoop in our hooping station and take the sublimated fabric facing up and tape it down to the tearaway backing in all four cor- ners so it wouldn't move. Then we slid the hoodie over the top of the sublimated ma- terial. (Images courtesy PJ Loomis)
