The first time I made a visit to the sublimation department, I admit…I felt a bit in over my head. The slicing of metal, the hot pressing of ink and metal plus the constant, witty banter that went back and forth was a lot faster paced than my daily typing away at a keyboard at our downtown office. But soon I realized how much fun everyone in this department had and slowly but surely, I learned to play along. One of these sublimation guys was Tyler. With a ponytail almost longer than mine and jokes for days, this department has no shortage on sass. Here it all from Tyler himself below!
