Ceramic Marking & Tools

Waterslide Decals

Waterslide decals are printed on 12.5"x18" sheets with an image area of 11"x17". We print primarily for OEMs but do service decorators, and small organizations. We do not charge per decal. Our minimum print quantity is ten sheets with price breaks at 25, 50, 100 and 500 sheets. The more motifs per sheet the less your cost per motif. Normal production time is between three to four weeks. Repeat orders shipped in two or less weeks.

Helpful Tools for Applying Waterslide Decals

T-Slide Rule To consistently position a decal in the same location on repeated objects use a flexible stainless steel T-slide rule (6"x15/32"x1/64", $2.39). Set the T-slide to measure the distance from the rim or edge of an object to the decal
Decal Squeegee To remove water and air from beneath the decal use a sixty or seventy durometer decal squeegee (2.5"x2"x.188", $4.95). Custom width available.
Decal Forceps If you are working with small decals, decal forceps are helpful when removing decals out of the water, and when placing them on a substrate. They come in either a flat thin straight blade (4.25" long, $4.19) or a flat thin bent blade (4.5" long, $4.95).
Forceps Sometimes when removing a decal from the water (if it's separated from the paper) or on placing it on a substrate, it will fold over. Forceps with a fine curved file-cut point (4.75" long, $4.59) are helpful in unfolding the decal. All three forceps are Nickel-plated, and have flat corrugated handles.

Ceramic Mementos

What better way to say "Thank You" than with complimentary gifts? Everytime your gifts are used, your organizational name and message is seen. You will be delighted with the results this produces.

A memento at organizational functions helps to increase attendance, goodwill, and is a souvenir of the event. If the gifts are coffee mugs, every morning the recipients will have a constant reminder of your organization. Employees appreciate the recognition (for safety, productivity, etc.) that a gift provides.

In addition to your message, you can personalize your gifts with the recipients' name. And when you do, your gift will become more than complimentary gift. Your gift will be something the recipients' will treasure.
