Dye Sublimation and Specialty Imprinting Association was formed in 2000 by
imprinters who have a common interest in the specialty imprinting market in
order to exchange information about inks, papers, substrates, presses, etc..
We have a very diverse group of people including hobbiest, trophy shops,
embroidery shops, screen printers, engravers and suppliers with a wide variety
of backgrounds ready to help you along. We hope you join our family by
clicking on "Discussion Forum" above but in the mean time, have a look at some
pictures of some of the characters you will probably meet along the way...

The following is a post
from the DSSI forum on Jan 2, 2002:
Congratulations to all for helping in making
this such a successful forum! The Dye Sublimation and Specialty Imprinting
forum is one of 40 forums that has been selected from the
thousands of forums here at Delphi for syndication. Delphi staff
wrote, "Your forum has been chosen because of its content, its focus
on helping or informing people, its overall tone, it's size and your
high-quality management. "
DSSI content will soon appear in a different
format through a site called eHow. All of us will continue to
use Delphiforums and we can continue to direct new members via
Delphiforums but we will start receiving additional members through the
To most of you this will mean very little, but the
few things for you to note are:
- If answering a navigation question, you must first
find out if they are viewing through Delphiforums or through eHow.
The eHow format is very different then the Delphiforums format.
- When posting a link to a message, I believe you
will need to post 2 links, one for the Delphiforum members and one for the
eHow members. When I know this for sure, I will post the format to
use for linking.
