-DSSI Association Information- 

DSSI Sponsor



Dye Sublimation and Specialty Imprinting Association  was formed in 2000 by imprinters who have a common interest in the specialty imprinting market in order to exchange information about inks, papers, substrates, presses, etc..  We have a very diverse group of people including hobbiest, trophy shops, embroidery shops, screen printers, engravers and suppliers with a wide variety of backgrounds ready to help you along.  We hope you join our family by clicking on "Discussion Forum" above but in the mean time, have a look at some pictures of some of the characters you will probably meet along the way...

Delphi: Dye Sublimation and Specialty Imprinting forum link

The following is a post from the DSSI forum on Jan 2, 2002:

Congratulations to all for helping in making this such a successful forum! The Dye Sublimation and Specialty Imprinting forum is one of 40 forums that has been selected from the thousands of forums here at Delphi for syndication.  Delphi staff wrote, "Your forum has been chosen because of its content, its focus on helping or informing people, its overall tone, it's size and your high-quality management. " 

DSSI content will soon appear in a different format through a site called eHow.  All of us will continue to use Delphiforums and we can continue to direct new members via Delphiforums but we will start receiving additional members through the eHow site.

To most of you this will mean very little, but the few things for you to note are: 

- If answering a navigation question, you must first find out if they are viewing through Delphiforums or through eHow.  The eHow format is very different then the Delphiforums format.

- When posting a link to a message, I believe you will need to post 2 links, one for the Delphiforum members and one for the eHow members.  When I know this for sure, I will post the format to use for linking.
