SourceSubstrates Launches Vapor Apparel for Sublimation,
Screen Printing & Embroidery.
Value Added Distributors Announced.

Charleston, South Carolina, December 1, 2004

SourceSubstrates LLC announces availability of the Vapor Apparel line of customizable performance apparel for dye sublimation, screen printing, and embroidery. This new line of performance apparel is engineered to PERMANENTLY wick moisture from the body. The shirts are available in short sleeve, long sleeve and muscle shirt styles from an elite group of value added distributors. Adult sizes as well as children's are available.

"The colors after transfer look great. We think the quality of product and the reliability that SourceSubstrates brings as a supplier will add real value for our customers, "says Tom Johnson, President of Johnson Plastics. Johnson Plastics is one of several value added distributors who are carrying the apparel line.

"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.

"We think our customers will be very excited about something more than the standard sublimation shirt," says Mark Collister, President of Joto Paper, an authorized Vapor Apparel distributor. "It is great for winter sports and works with multiple decorating technologies."

SourceSubstrates has signed distributorship agreements with several value added distributors of sublimation and screen printing systems including: ACP Technologies, Imprints USA, Joto Paper, The Paper Ranch, Printa Systems, Johnson Plastics, SEPS Graphics and TR Distributors.

SourceSubstrates specializes in the value-added sourcing of blank apparel and other soft substrates for the sublimation, screen-printing, and embroidery industries. The company markets the Vapor Apparel brand exclusively through its distribution partners. SourceSubstrates has over 75 collective years of experience in the sublimation, screen-printing, and textile industries. The company's unique network of manufacturing and logistics partners offers a competitive advantage to our customers. SourceSubstrates is headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina.
