1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / TShirt Tranfers / Heat Presses on: August 17, 2005 08:29:31 AM
Hi there

This is probably a lot shot - but does anyone know of any Canadian companies that make custom tshirt transfers (i.e that you need a heat press to adhere to clothing)?  The only place I have really found is www.reflex2k.com but I would like to check out some additional companies.

Also - I need to get a heat press. Anyone have any leads on a Canadian company that sells them? Or, does anyone have any recommendations on a brand/model?

2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Canadian Online Store - Shipping and Credit Card Processor Questions on: March 22, 2005 07:52:56 AM
Hi there

Not sure how many Canadians who are on these boards have online stores...but I am hoping a few might, and may be able to help me out.  I am getting my store ready to go and am currently figuring out Shipping and Payment Processing.  Here's what I am wondering:

1. Credit Card Payment Processor:
I am almost 100% sure that I want to set up the store with credit card payment - as opposed to PayPal (though I know from reading other posts that PayPal is the cheapest and easiest...am thinking that I may just go the credit card route). I am looking into some payment processor companies...here is a listing of Canadian ones I know about:
* PSIGate
* InternetSecure
* Moneris
* Desjardins
* E-Select
* Paradata
* Verisign Payflow Pro
* Beanstream

Anyone have experience with any of the above? Or is there another company you'd recommend? Obviously i would be looking for the one that is the most reliable and has the lowest fees.

2. Shipping:
Ug. Shipping. I want to make sure this is all figured out as i want it to be as little pain as possible.
a) How do other people calculate their shipping rates? E.g. Do you get the cost for each size/weight and set the rate based on that? Do you come up with fixed rates - like under $25 is 10 bucks shipping?  Basically I need a method that doesn't burn me.
b) Does anyone have experience using Canada Post's shipping module for online stores?
c) How do you ship the actual packages? Do you take them all to Canada Post each week?  Do you use something other than Canada Post to ship?

Any info or advice would be muchly appreciated. Or if there are links for resources you can share - that would be also great.


3  CANADA / Ontario / Shrinky Dink sheets - where oh where could they be? on: March 19, 2005 06:55:15 AM
Does anyone know where I can get shrinky dink sheets in Southern Ontario area (i.e. looking for an actual store not online). I am looking for the regular sheets - though finding the Ink Jet ones as well would be a bonus.  Do office supply stores (like Staples) carry it? Or craft supply stores like Michaels? And should I be looking for packs put out brands by other companies (i.e. not offical 'shrinky dink' product).   Thanks!
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Looking for Sources for Adhesives (Glue Dots???) on: October 29, 2004 10:27:01 AM
Hey there

I am going to be mailing out button sets (i.e. pins) and will be attaching them to a nice cardboard backing (it's all in the presentation, ya know!). Smiley  I am searching for a type of adhesive that will allow the buttons to be stuck to the cardboard - must be strong enough to hold during shipping, however, must not be too strong because the buttons will need to be removed (without glue stuck all over the pin backing). 

Glue Dots (high profile/low tack) seem to be the most ideal thing for this...  So far have only found them available on US sites - anyone know of any Canadian sites that offer them in bulk (if need be will order them from the States...).  Has anyone ever used a product that is similar that they would recommend?  Must be easy and quick and non-messy to use - which is why Glue Dots are so appealing.

With lots o' thanks in advance,
