About Us

Welcome to Blu Orca Apparel! I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you a little about me the story behind this business. How did I pick this business name? Well my granddaughter can tell you I love the colour blue, and I love the majestic Orca Whales. It's on my bucket list to see them in real life one day. I even have a set of whales painted on my bedroom wall to my husband's dismay at the time. That was one of the first things I painted in our new home 25 yrs ago. He has learned to love them too and shows off my mural to anyone who wants to see.

From the very beginning I have been a crafting maniac. There isn't a time when I haven't crafted especially though my adult years. Over the past three years I've delved into Sublimation. What is Sublimation you ask? It's where you can use a specialized ink to transfer images to many things such as t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, bags and the like. You can have your very own memories and personal pictures transferred to these items. The ink converts to a gas and embeds right into the fabric that never peels or fades in the wash providing you use the right substrate that was made specifically for sublimation:0)

One thing has been made abundantly clear. It's near impossible to consistently find good quality hoodies, sweatshirts, t-shirts and the like that are not see through or specifically made for Sublimation in Canada. Those in the business of making items using Sublimation know things must be made of polyester material for the process to work. The trick is finding polyester that is not shiny, not see through, and press beautifully with no burning or markings left by the heat press. It has taken 9 months of sourcing and countless samples and many dollars to find the best brand and material for my customers. It's my goal to carry stock specifically for sublimation and provide businesses the ease of finding the right substrate to elevate their product and business.

Blu Orca Apparel is a proud Canadian company and we strive to provide products that meet your needs to run a successful business or just to craft for your friends and family.
