Kaleidoscope has in house capacity for high quality, high volume embroidery work. Our state of the art, six head embroidery machine is great for large production runs. Our super vibrant thread comes in a wide variety of colors, helping us create some very impressive embroidered products. If you just need a few pieces, our single head machine is serves well for small orders. Whether it’s hats, shirts, jackets, and more, Kaleidoscope is the only name you need to know in embroidery.
Are you looking to decorate SPF sun-shirts, sports uniforms, or fishing shirts? We offer in-house sublimation – with no minimums. This technique is perfect for those one-of-a-kind gifts or promotions. Alternatively, if you’d like to adorn a T-shirt or a mug with a photo of a pet or a friend, come and see us. We also print photos and logos on Christmas ornaments , tiles, coozies, phone cases, and hundreds of other items.
The process of sublimation uses heat and pressure. It takes a graphic image from transfer paper, and fuses it to the blank item. The result is a very durable image that is able to withstand hundreds (in some cases thousands) of washes without fading.
How about laser-etched tumblers by Yeti or Polar Camel? Or bottles by Hydrapeak? Our state-of-the-art laser-etching equipment means we’re able to print logos on almost any surface – including wood, leather, and glass.
Kaleidoscope’s in house process transfers a custom design to a variety of hard surfaces. Generally, laser engraving, or laser etching is a process that uses a laser to etch an image into the surface of an object. We can etch into stainless steel or aluminum tumblers, glasses or mugs, water bottles, wood, leather, metal, glass, and some types of plastic. It’s great for a variety of custom products.
