48 • A&E JUNE 2016 SUBLIMATION QUICK STOP Sublimation a much larger system and a much higher price point that you can sell it at. SUBLIDECAL Another great product that not many people think about is the Sublidecal. We have talked about this in the past, but it is basically a sublimatable decal that you can apply to items that normally are not able to be used in the process to give them that full-color appeal. In the wedding world, they can be used in a few different ways. The one that comes up most is applying the decal to a champagne bottle that commemo- rates the occasion. You can also apply them to the bottles that sometimes go on each table for the toast to the bride and groom. What about a full-color photo of the happy couple? That would also add a nice little conversation piece for the guests at your table. SUBLIFLEX Subliflex is also one we have talked about in the past but not in this capacity. It is a product that can be made into a variety of things but is mainly used in ID cards or table tents. For the wedding purpose, its use as a table tent can be an awesome add-on for someone ordering a wedding package from you. Many weddings now have seating charts that guests need to follow. Having a table tent at each table with a nice photo of the couple in the back- ground with a larger number indicating the table numbers next to that is a wel- come change to any bride or groom looking to make their wedding different from their friends. PINT GLASS When you are in a wedding party, typi- cally you will get a thank-you gift for being a part of the couple's special day. Many times it is a glass or a mug of some sort, which is engraved, or something along those lines, with your name or your job in the wedding. What about offering a glass with a nice picture of the group on it or a picture that has the bride/groom and the participant in it? That glass will have a lot more meaning to that person than something with their name on it that they may already have a few of. CONCLUSION With the wedding season here and ready to break out, the time is now to get some ideas going about different products to offer in a wedding package. The wed- ding industry brings in a lot of money and there is no reason that you cannot jump aboard and get your share. There are many products available that would be great for weddings, it's just a matter of you finding the ones you like and making the jump, head first!
