How are the custom handhelds made?

The custom handhelds are made utilizing a unique dye transfer technology known as sublimation. Once submitted through the design studio, the image is transferred to a propriety fabric that is wrapped around the handheld. The handheld is then heated to a very high temperature which causes to image to vaporize directly into the plastic handheld. This unique process provides for a durable product that can withstand many environmental factors.
