been challenging due to the unusual aspect ratio of the photos—they are really wide but not very tall. To address this high- value niche, there's a new double-sided ChromaLuxe product that is 4 inches tall by 16 inches wide. As the metal is double sided, it provides many decorating options, including using the same photo on the back and front, using two different photos, or keeping the back blank. In addition, you can "stitch" photos together to form a single panoramic image. A helpful hint: sublimate both sides at the same time, as metal conducts heat quite well. After sublimation, the real fun begins. Using an Accucutter precision roller, we give the metal a gentle curve to produce a high value, self-standing work of art. I also recommend having a metal shear so that you can cut metal to the unique dimensions of various regular and panoramic photos. COLORLYTE GLASS Imagine a piece of glass that glows with color and is viewed from both sides. ColorLyte glass photo panels are a unique and frameless way to display favorite digital images and photographs on a shelf, desk, or wall. The tempered glass photo panels give depth and brilliance to transferred images while the white imprintable coating on the backside provides amazing image clarity and color reproduction that includes bright whites and deep blacks. VAPOR LADIES V-NECK LONG- SLEEVE SOLAR SHIRT This new stylish shirt for women is sublimation certified and made from moisture-wicking performance Pure-tech fabric that keeps the wearer's body dry in the winter and summer. In addition, the fabric includes UPF 50+ sun block ColorLyte glass photo panels are a unique way to display favorite digital images and photographs. Production-ready sublimation socks come pre-mounted on their pressing jigs for quick sublimation and uniform results. The TURBO wrapper allows the printed transfer and wrap to be installed on the mug in seconds. 10 • A&E MARCH 2018 Growth means change and change involves risks, stepping from the known to the unknown." -George Shinn "
