FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

New Fabric Feels Like Cotton, Wicks like a Champ!
Charleston, South Carolina January 3rd, 2006
Today, Source Substrates announces its new lady’s line for 2006, adding six new
style-colors. This is part of the company’s continued long term commitment to
developing high quality apparel for the digital decorator.
“A year of listening to customers and bringing them into the product development
process is paying off,” says Jackson Burnett, President of Source Substrates.
“For a long time women have been underserved and in critical need of apparel
options. The feedback from customers and distribution partners has been very
positive.” The products will be available in March.
The three new styles include the Vapor Sports Tank, Vapor Baby Doll, and the
Vapor Lady’s Ringer. These styles use a specially designed fabric that will set
a new bar for quality in sublimation apparel.
“We saw the need to increase fabric opacity with these shirts and create the
allusion of cotton like similar to the basic-t.” says Christopher Bernat, Chief
Revenue Officer of SourceSubstrates. “Vapor Apparel is now delivering to women a
fabric that offers performance features, high-opacity, a bit of stretch and a
fabulous cotton feel. It’s a high quality shirt with a great price. Smart
sublimators are going to be very excited.”
The revolutionary fabric is specifically engineered for sublimation. The 6.5
ounce fabric is specially designed to increase the thickness of the shirt while
reducing the likelihood of scorching from the sublimation process.
The new shirts will be available in a number of sublimation friendly colors.
Specific colors and other information will be available when the shirts are
launched at ISS Long Beach, California in January of 2006.
