This just in!

! New Inks !
Cosmic Crystals
This ink is pretty cool. It is a clear ink with hexagonal glitter flakes that refract light in different colors depending on the angle it is viewed. With the base being clear, this ink can be printed on top of any color and gives special effects to your design.

Glow in the Dark
This level of awesome explains itself. Like the Cosmic Crystals, glow in the dark is an overprint ink which allows any color to be printed underneath it. However, the intensity of glow depends on how light the under print is. Basically, white ink is best laid down first.

Reflective Silver
Silver in color this ink is offers high reflectivity. Though higher in price, this ink will enhance visibility at night and provide a level of safety for your customers. Perfect for after dark delivery drivers. Use this ink to give your design or logo appeal to bikers and pedestrians.

! New Services !

Whether you know or not, Rebel Cricket has offered custom one inch buttons since 2005. We are happy to announce 1.5” buttons are here. When what you need to say won’t fit in a 1” circle or 1” just doesn’t do your logo justice, try the 1.5” button. Both sizes are available with traditional pin or magnetic backing. Call for pricing.

That’s all for now, I look forward to hearing from you in 2009.

News from the Print Lair

Hopefully by now it’s starting to stick that its 2009. I thought it would be good to start sending out news from the print lair. The intent is to keep you informed of everything Rebel Cricket is doing throughout the year. From special offers to new services and products, I am very happy with how 2009 is taking shape.

The new catalogs and fabric swatches are now available. Request yours today while supplies last or log onto and browse through all that our local Portland distributor has to offer. Call us at 503-545-1450 anytime need pricing or have a question about availability.

In 2008, we expanded our supplier accounts to include distributors throughout the greater Northwest. Doing so has given us access to a greater variety of garments and accessories. We still order what we can locally and pick up the goods by bike.

With spring around the corner and summer on its way, it is the perfect time to outfit your employees, friends, fans or family with a fresh look. We’ve added new services and are working to expand our ink selection. By May of this year we plan to be fully converted to using the ortho-phthalate free plastisol inks we began implementing last year. These inks are formulated for a wide variety of fabrics and are produced in Washington. We also look to expand our water based ink collection, which are lead and solvent free. These inks print wonderfully on light colored garments and provide a softer feel to the actual print.

If you have any questions as to which ink is right for you, please ask.
