Printing options at Alien Tech

The paper is cut out, to fit the mug and taped with transfer tape to hold the paper on the mug, placed on the mug press for a few minutes, and is ready.

This type of printing requires heat, that is why sometimes they will call it heat transfer.

Printing allows a more complicated design and still get the best result compared to embroidery.

These are the print options that Alien Tech uses sublimation, heat transfer vinyl, and embroidery.

Other printing

What is Screenprint

Screen printing or silk screening uses screen (stencils) to take your design onto the material. Just like HTV printing, you need different HTV to create your artwork that has different colors. Screen printing each color needed, in the design, requires its stencil.

Frequently asked questions about screen print?

Can you bring your t-shirts or clothing? Yes

What is better Vinyl Printing or screen printing?
Both printings are amazing, but some art design is better with vinyl some with screen printing. Vinyl will last for a few years before fading, and Screen printing lasts longer but sometimes crack depending on the print that was used.


Which is best between Heat transfer vinyl and screen printing when you have a small order or small quantity?

Heat transfer vinyl printing is better because it takes less time. Screen printing takes more time to set up that is why is perfect for bulk printing.

What is Direct to garment

The design is printed directly to the t-shirt or clothing through an inkjet printer.

Frequently asked a question about direct to garment print?

Is a direct to garment printing good quality? Yes

Printing depends on your budget and what you want to achieve. When printing on dark t-shit fabric, screen printing will produce a more vibrant look, and for light t-shirt fabric, heat transfer vinyl is best.

Embroidery works best on both.

Woman Know Your Worth

Woman Know Your Worth

Is being a woman a sin or curse
Is my existence a crime
Because it sure feels like it
I know I am no angel
If that’s what you thought you have found in me but

Are my mistakes worse just because I am a woman

Remember when we meet
You said all the right words
You looked at me and told me how beautiful I am
You said I should give you a chance
All you want is to love and protect me

I did, I gave you a chance

I put my dreams on hold to start a family with you,
Excited to tell I am carrying a life inside me
Up until today, I don’t know what upset you that day,
But, before I could share the news with you,
You were punching me like a punching bag,
Kicking me like a ball
You beat me to a pulp I lost the baby,
Still, I stayed because I loved you or rather,
I was in love with the dream of what we could be
When everyone around me said I should go
I stayed, I stayed because
You were the love of my life!

Know Your Worth

I gave you so many chances because I thought you loved me,

I thought if I stayed just a little bit longer,

Things would get better,

Bit by bit piece by piece I lost my self

I blamed myself because I provoked you,

Your abuse was so normal

Before I knew it,

I loved you more than I loved myself,

I lost my self-confidence,

My worth

My eye side

My ability to use my legs

My dreams

Regrets and I became best friends.

 Did I deserve to be abused?


Were my mistakes worse just because I am a woman?

Lost Right
Lost Front
Lost Left

Why is a woman always blamed when things go wrong?

When you abused me, my in-laws said I proved you

When I could not keep a child full-term 

They called me a  barren

Not knowing the many times you beat me to a pulp I lost our babies

Struggling to have kids

God blessed us with kids

And, again they were too dark or too light to be yours my in-laws said

What exactly did a woman do?

My husband passed away and

I did not even get a chance to  grieve  for him

I was busy fighting with my in-laws because

Again, I was blamed that I killed you

When will it end

Are my mistakes worse just because I am a woman

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH Stop Women and Children abuse

I have overcome every situation I thought would break me

But it didn’t

I am a woman

Strong, beautiful, sexy, caring and forgiving

I am taking charge of my life

I know my worth

Today, I paint my own canvas

I am taking charge of my own ship

I was a passenger for too long

Not anymore

I am the captain of my ship

I am a woman

I know my worth

I deserve more

I demand more



The strength is within us

We are our own savior 

Woman Know Your Worth





Gift Ideas

My six perfect gift ideas

Does not matter the age, gender or experience when it comes to choosing a gift we all need help.


I honestly don’t know why but gift ideas are not as easy as people think.

When you choose a gift, you must first check the person you are getting the gift for are they your parents, partner, friends, co-worker etc.

After answering what relationship, you have with the person you are getting a gift for now you can start to write down a perfect gift idea for them?


Mugs (mason jar, mugs, beer mugs, kids mug, plastic glass/mugs) gift


Now this one is my favourite gift idea all you have to ask yourself is the person I am buying the gift for is he or she a hot or cold beverage drinker.

Cold beverage drinker gift ideas mason jar mug, beer mug, wines glasses can also be plastic, hip flask for when you need something to drink at hand.

Hot beverages whether it is hot or cold some people just love their hot beverages so why not just get them a mug. Personalized ceramic mug with spoon, enamel, traveling mug, and last but not least a magic color-changing mug.

 I don’t know about you but I love my tea.

  The is something about a personalized mug that honestly I can’t explain not only do you feel special because it is specially made just for you but who does not like seeing themselves?

T-Shirt Printing


T-Shirts are a nice gift because it accommodates your different families and friends. Personalized T-Shirt is one of the best gift ideas and when you are asking yourself why t-shirt?

With a t-shirt, you can write to your message on the t-shirt, birthdays wish, own design, put their logo, their names and your photo on the t-shirt.

Now like a ring to show you are taken the same with a t-shirt customize your message hands off his taken.

I have not seen a woman who does not like to match with their partner once in an awhile so if you have not got your partner a personalized t-shirt I think is now due.

When choosing a photo t-shirt make sure the t-shirt is 100% white polyester for best results it is best recommended for sublimation which is perfect for photos.

Keyrings and Metal Key rack to hold your keys

Seriously keyrings and key racks as a gift idea? Yes, I am very serious.


Every day people get this question have you seen my keys? The answer is always where did you put them, where was the last place you saw them.


Looking for keys is a thing of a past now getting your personalized key rack the keys finally have a place.

Keyrings are small but a nice personal gift that reminds your love once you care for them and helping them find a home for their keys am telling you will be a life saver.

The personalized keyring opener is made with stainless steel, for your convenience and durability so when you need to open that bottle.

 A personalized keyring is customized with your photos, design, and a message for a unique keyring that shows off your style and love your family.

Personalized keyrings you’re loved once photos in your pocket.

 keyring opener is quite a handy tool to have for your cold beverages.

Personalized key racks
Personalized Coasters


Weather you have a glass, plastic or wood table stains on the table are the one thing no one want in their house.

The is nothing more irritating as your beautiful table getting stained so avoid stains get her coasters.

It is not that you don’t like visitors but their hot and cold beverages leave marks on your beautiful wood or glass table.

Remember a perfect gift is a gift that can be used not a gift that will wait for special guest we don’t know when they will come.


If you have ever used a laptop or computer before then you know what am talking about, you know how irritating and frustrating it is to use your mouse without a mousepad?

To be honest using a mouse without a mousepad is like you are a headless chicken the mouse has a brain of its own you want it to go right it will go left.

 Get your co-worker or a friend a gift they can use daily and they will appreciate it.



When we talk storage we are talking storage Kids box/chair now this is not just a storage box but the child can seat on it.

Getting your child this storage box you can’t come home with it empty buy one or two new toys so he/she understands what the storage box is for after playing with toys you put them away.

Getting the child at least one educational toy helps them learn.

Other ideas are pillbox, personalized makeup metal compact square, and business cardholder.

Now, I am not a big fan of gifts that are not used, gift ideas above are affordable and used often or sometimes.

Instead of spending thousands of rands, buying my mother pots, tea pots set or blankets she has never used them and every time you ask the answer is we will use it when guests come.

The secret is out the best gift is a gift that is specially made just for you a personalized gift you can never go wrong.

Place your order and let us make you a personalized gift specially made just for you!
