PLANNING CALENDARS

Choose from one of the recommended event dates below, and download your week-to-week planner of event preparations.

You may have noticed that there are no recommended December dates this year. This is because, based on other school owners’ past experiences, we’re recommending holiday sales be held in November. Sales in December are competing with family visits, trips, and, most critically, the fact that by December most holiday shopping has already been done. Your sale can compete with Black Friday in November, but not with all the gift purchases your students and their parents have already made by the time December rolls around.

Sublimation printing is one of the newest customization services offered by Century, and it’s a popular method to use for gift items. Here are some examples of what sublimation printing can be used to make:

  • A t-shirt with a personal photo (e.g. a team photo, a picture from a belt ceremony) on it
  • An ornament decorated with an individual’s name and an image
  • A license plate with a dojo’s or individual’s name or the school logo

And there are so many more! Sublimation printing lets you add photo-quality images, with no extra cost for additional colors! Best of all, there is no minimum order for sublimation print custom items!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Sublimation printing is a digital printing method. It’s different than standard screen printing customization. When an item is screen printed, a custom image is painted onto the surface of the product. Below the layer of ink, the fabric is unchanged. However, in sublimation printing, the ink is heat-infused into the material to dye it.
