      Do you mean how to do the designs in the slip used to color the face of the tile when it is fired? Or print them.

      Printing can be done as a dye-sub process or as a UV flatbed process.

      HOWEVER
      There are certain wearability and food safety issues you need to know about.
      -Dye sub or printed tiles should not be used outdoors. There have been too many reports of almost immediate fading and no cases of tiles lasting much more than 5 years without significant fading.
      -They can't be used for flooring or high traffic areas like hallway walls.
      -Cleansers that can scratch the surface are bad for printed tiles.
      -Exposure to heat and grease aren't good for them either.
      -Some inks may contain chemicals you don't want to have in contact with food.

      Dye sub is more common. UV flatbed is more of a short term usage.

              Looks like the only option to watch it now is to rent (3.99) or buy (14.99) on iTunes. Netflix changes their selection so often I can't keep up. Nothing worse than starting a movie and going on to finish...

              Quite honestly I don't think anyone would really take offense to a shirt like that.
              But I still don't think anyone would buy it because I'm pretty convinced ''Us vs Them'' is pretty well ingrained...

              While I know little about policies on using the flag in design, I think what you're proposing would reflect the dramatic polarization that is currently occurring in this presidential race. Speaking to...
