Find Deb'Z D'Zigns on Facebook!

Yes, I finally took the plunge and added a Facebook page--with the newest pictures and sales being added there.

Late winter and early spring is generally a slower time for me--which makes it a great time for you to get things stitched up, especially for Easter, Confirmation, or Graduation gifts. Popular items for Easter and Confirmation are lace bookmarks (some with Bible verses stitched into the lace). Graduation brings lots of possibilities for the college-bound grad--monogrammed towels, pillowcases, laundry bags, blankets, and more.

Think ahead--is there a special gift you need this spring? Now is the perfect time to get it done, wrapped and out of the way!

Happy New Year!

Gosh, it's 2010 already--where did 2009 go?!?!?!

Time to start thinking about basketball tournaments and spring things. Need tee-shirts to show your team spirit? Hats with the team logo? Now is the time to be ordering them, before it's crunch time a week before the event begins!

Let me know how I can help you promote your business or event in 2010!

6th anniversary!

January 20 marks my 6th year in the business, and to celebrate, I will be offering 20% off embroidery costs for all orders placed on that date! When you place your order, you need to mention this blog specifically to get the discount.

Till next time . . .

Shirts galore--for the PTO, that is! Finished these up and they will be distributed to the students that earned them in the Walk-A-Thon.

The co-presidents tell me there are order forms going out if anyone wants to order one. Contact the Holgate PTO officers if you are interested!
I've been working on ideas for basketball season--so if there is something that you want to see done, or if you have a new and different idea, let me know soon, so I can get it finished before the first tip-off of the season!

DEADLINE! All orders for Christmas delivery MUST be made before December 1, 2009.
Unfortunately, I've had to make this a little earlier. Please make a note of it and get your orders in before then, so Santa doesn't disappoint!
Till next time . . .

Gearing up for Fall Sports!

With football practices in full swing, along with volleyball and cross country and soccer--now is the time to get your spirit gear and be ready for the big games!

New this fall: Tie-dye shirts with your school name/logo! Or Camo prints! Bright, vibrant colors on a dark-colored tee really pop! What about putting your team name in a reflective print--to really shine when the lights come on for the game!

Lots of possibilities! Get your orders in soon for fall sports!

Up and running!

As summer is heating up, so is my heat press! Lots of practice shirts have been made, and washed, and tested. I LOVE this machine! There are so many beautiful picture designs out there! And I placed my first order for custom transfers today--I can't wait to get them!
What is a transfer? When you have a 'screen-print' tee-shirt made, the inks are pushed through a screen and onto the shirt--then the second color is done the same way, and the third, etc. When a transfer is made, the same materials are involved, but the inks are printed onto the transfer paper. When this is applied to a shirt with a heat press, the design 'transfers' to the shirt with an extremely high heat--usually over 350 degrees. Both designs are equally durable.
Adding a heat press to Deb'Z D'Zigns has given me the ability to offer you both ends of the decorated apparel spectrum--lower cost imprinted shirts, and the high-end designer look of custom embroidery.
Stitched or pressed--it's all up to you!

BIG CHANGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!`

There have been some great additions to Deb'Z D'Zigns in the past couple of weeks--and the biggest news is that I've added heat press to the business! The sky is the limit with what is being done in heat-imprinted apparel, with glitters, foils, and full-color imprints available on the garments you specify in just a few days' time. Stock artwork is available, or I can take your artwork and turn it into a beautiful print.

What can imprints be put on? Just about anything! Jackets, shirts, pants, duffel bags--contact me to discuss ideas that will work for you.

I've even gotten some transfers in that are just perfect for adding a touch of embroidery along WITH the transfer.

So you see--the options are endless! Watch for photos to be added to my gallery soon!

Digging out

Winter in Ohio--well, this year it's been everything it is supposed to be. COLD. SNOWY. WINDY. I can't complain too much, though, because I love snow. And so does the puppy! Piper was in snow as deep as she is tall (we had 7" of new snow on top of what was already on the ground) and loving every minute of it!

I'm starting back to work on some scrapbooking--traditional, not digital--in order to finish a sports scrapbook. It's a lot of fun, and I'm coming to the end of this 3-year project. WHEW! Then it's on to some Valentine cards--I have a few ideas, but haven't tried any of them out yet. And I see that Sizzix is bringing out some embossing folders--can't wait to try them!
