While, for some people, it has been the holiday season for quite some time already, the official countdown to Christmas starts on the Friday after Thanksgiving. If you’ve been making your gift lists and checking them twice, you may have already purchased the supplies you need. If not, here are a few tips for planning your sublimation supply orders from EnMart. These tips will help ensure that your supplies arrive on time and you can have your gifts completed, wrapped and under the tree long before Christmas morning.
Tip # 1: All sublimation supplies currently come from Michigan – Although we do have four locations across the United States, all sublimation papers, inks, printers and blanks are currently shipped from Michigan. Please factor shipping time from Michigan to your location into estimated delivery time when you place your order.
Tip 2: Most orders turn same day if placed early enough – At EnMart we pride ourselves on same day shipment of almost all orders. The only exceptions are orders for which items need to be created i.e. blank patches, or orders which come in too late to make our shipment pick-up. To ensure your order ships the same day you place it, make sure it is placed early enough in the day to be pulled, packaged and picked-up.
Tip 3: Sublimation blanks can be bought by the piece – If you just need one piece of one of our sublimation blanks for a gift, you can buy just one. The only requirement is that your order meets the $25 minimum purchase requirement. As long as your order is $25 or more, you can buy one of any of the sublimation blanks we offer.
Tip 4: Combo packages make great gifts – If you know someone who might want to get started with sublimation, one of EnMart’s sublimation combo packages makes a great gift. We’ll even box everything up and ship it to the intended recipient’s address. Please do keep in mind that combo packages supply everything needed to print a sublimation transfer. If you want to sublimate an item, you’ll need an item suitable for sublimation and a heat press as well.
Tip 5: Ink prices will rise in 2012, so stock up on ink now – Ink prices are scheduled to rise in 2012, so now is the time to stock up on sublimation ink. As always, EnMart offers free Ground shipping on all sublimation ink, so now is the time to replenish your supply at 2011 prices and get free shipping.
