Announcements

2023 Year-End Announcement:

At CT Hobby, we’re very grateful for all your encouragement, support and sharing. So it is fitting that we give back at year-end. Here are some things we want you to know:

Price increase on Kits

You have made our kits a huge success, and we will continue adding more! Prices will increased slightly in January 2024 to $11.99, due to higher shipping and material costs. These DIY kits are normally $15 or higher (sometimes MUCH higher) from other sellers. That’s for a complete kit—often several pieces. ¼ inch Birch plywood or MDF, same price, including the round on many kits. Rev Ply, Acrylic and sublimation hardboard is available for all cutouts at additional cost. You’ve heard me say for years, that we will fight price increases as long as possible, and reduce them as soon as possible. We tried lowering the price of these kits, and have found we simply cannot continue to provide the highest quality kits at those prices. Be assured that we have had multiple discussions with both suppliers and shippers over the last few months regarding pricing, and are closely monitoring supply chain changes.

Clearance Prices on All Things Siser

We simply MUST get rid of all remaining Siser stock. CT Hobby has stocked both Siser and Stahls’ CAD-CUT for some time now, it has become abundantly clear that when Customers see both, side-by-side, Stahls is consistently chosen by both our Customers and others like Fanatics, Adidas, Nike, and the NFL. Please see our Facebook posts about pricing, and join our Vinyl Club to see the prices consistently lower than what you’ve been paying during “sales”! Come get Siser clearance prices you may not find anywhere else, while CT Hobby still has it in stock!

Hotronix Floor Model deals

You already know CT Hobby has Hotronix heat presses in stock. You’ve bought the shirts from us and picked out free transfers (DTF, sublimation AND vinyl), and pressed your own shirts for FREE here at CT Hobby, using the best presses in the world, made here in the USA. Hotronix, CAD-CUT, Orafol, Siser and many other products, are covered by Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) policies, which forbid CT Hobby from advertising pricing below certain prices. However, we need to keep these products fresh, and often have in-house Hotronix deals available. That means you can get AMAZING prices on your dream upgrades! Please don’t ask us to put these deal prices in writing, as that would violate the MAP contract requirements.

Bring in your current heat press and let us check it for temperature accuracy before you press that next DTF onto polyester/spandex workout shirts!
