reliability that SourceSubstrates brings as a supplier will add real value for
our customers, "says Tom Johnson, President of Johnson Plastics. Johnson

"We hope the end customer will appreciate the difference in performance and
quality," says Jackson Burnett, President of SourceSubstrates. "We have
partnered with Intera, the leader in patented sweat-wickable performance yarn.
The process prevents the moisture wicking from fading like most performance
shirts on the market. That keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter
wash after wash after wash."
Vapor Apparel is currently available in Brighter White. Women's cuts and
additional colors will be available for shipments in February 2005. Colors will
include Mercury Silver, Zesty Yellow, Blue Sky Blue, and Breezy Pink.

with multiple decorating technologies."
