-Sponsorship Programs- 

Where else can you put your company in front of your targeted audience for such a low monthly cost?

If you are selling products related to the transfer printing industry, this is the place to do it! At a fraction of the cost to place an ad in the popular trade magazines, your company can be in front of your targeted market so you will get a much bigger "bang for your buck" on the DyeSub.org website!

Dyesub.org is dedicated to the education and advancement of dye sublimation and transfer printing industry. The people that visit this site are buyers, sellers and educators of products used to produce garments, mouse pads, mugs, hats, totes, dolls, tiles, name plates, awards... (and as you know the list goes on), using heat transfer methods.  

Check out our statistics on the visitors and page views of DyeSub.org.

The DyeSub.org website is currently hosted at EV1 Servers on a private server.  Uptime on this server since February 2003 has been 99.9%.

DyeSub.org is enhanced by the Dye Sublimation and Specialty Imprinting (DSSI) forum.   As of the end of July 2004 the newly moved (since mid-April) DSSI forum had over 1000 registered users.  Future plans for the forum are to make it a paid subscription based forum.  When this is in place there will be a folder or two still available for public reading complete with banner ads. 

The site is promoted in various ways such as press releases in applicable trade magazines, continuous requests for reciprocal links, participation in industry chats and search engine advertising. 

What you receive as one of our site sponsors:

  • Targeted audience specific to the transfer printing industry and focused on dye sublimation
  • Links to your web site or e-mail from your banner and product listings
  • Priority sponsor listings on the Industry Links pages
  • Free banner set up if needed
