The move to combine into two main campus locations is on track and already delivering the promised benefits for existing customers.

Smart allocation of space and resources is making the new combined ColDesi companies and brands ready for rapid growth in the coming months and years.

ColDesi and Pantograms are located just a few miles from each other in Tampa, FL.  “This makes a dual campus strategy the perfect way to serve our customers better,” said Mark Stephenson, Director of Marketing.

“Each building is in the process of being repurposed, remodeled and retrofitted to provide maximum value and convenience.”  He said.

Employees have been working to move inventory, better organize, and combine existing resources to make things more efficient.

ColDesi has announced the structure of the merger as follows:

The Westshore Campus

The original home of ColDesi, Inc will house the Support Department for all products.

This arrangement allows the department to laser focus on the brands which keep their customer’s businesses running in top form.

The staff will also offer in-house demonstrations in the recently updated showroom.  It will host webinars, and handles pre-shipment testing and certification.

Avancé Commercial Embroidery Machines

The popular 1501C single head, 15 needle embroidery machines are currently ready for walk-in demonstrations along with the 1504 or 1506C multi head machines.

A new addition is the 1502 2-head embroidery machine recently released for sale in the US.

DTG Direct to Garment Printers

Also at the Westshore campus, the DTG brand “M2” and “M6” custom t-shirt printers are always on display.

The DTG brand is quickly becoming known as the best dtg printer in America according to recent articles and customer reports.

This campus is where the newest pretreat machines and heat presses can be found as well.

When customers order DTG samples, they are printed at this location in the showroom.

ColDesi uses the same technology and equipment that they provide to their customers.

Compress UV Printer

The Compress brand LED UV printers are a new addition to the Westshore Campus.  Ready for the explosive growth seen recently in UV Printers, ColDesi salespeople, and technical personnel have been trained to represent and support the printer.

Workers are putting the finishing touches on the showroom.  Click Here if you would like to schedule an exclusive demonstration of this entirely new class of flatbed UV printer.

ProSpangle Bling Machine

this ColDesi original machine is associated with Beautiful, Professional and Profitable bling transfers.

The ProSpangle produces bling heat press transfers that look like rhinestones, but are soft to the touch and as much as 7X more profitable.

CAMS Rhinestone Machine

The CAMS Machine has been used to make more rhinestone transfers and custom bling t-shirts than any other automatic machine in the Americas.

The Dale Mabry Campus

The Pantograms name remains on the building, and it’s been joined by both the ColDesi and Colman and Company names as well.

The staff at the Dale Mabry campus is growing considerably as Colman and Company supplies and personnel have already made the move eastward.

This campus houses ColDesi’s world-class training department.  No matter what product is purchased, customers will visit Dale Mabry training when they choose sunny Florida as their training location.

Also, the NJ training office will remain as it is for easy access to customers in the NorthEast.


Colman and Company

This part of the ColDesi family of companies has grown tremendously.

The company went from being the supply arm of ColDesi (providing embroidery supplies,dtg inks, rhinestones and other sundries) into an industry powerhouse in its own right.

Known for its unique products like the “Patch Kit” and the “Colman Clamp,” the Colman and Company inventors have also developed some of the best business kits in the industry for start-ups.

Colman and Company’s e-commerce store is absorbing Emb Supplies products to give customers a one stop shop for all of their apparel decorating supplies.

The Brush-n-Bake and Cut-n-Press cutters, etc.

Both these kits will be kept at the Dale Mabry campus as well as other specialty custom apparel bundles.

Also, the Hotronix heat presses and most importantly the new Triton line of heat transfer vinyl will be found there as well.

The Digital HeatFX Brand

The hottest new product in custom t-shirt transfer printing is Digital HeatFX’s white toner printer bundles.

Digital HeatFX has been one of the most successful products of the combined companies because it allows people to get started in custom t-shirts with a smaller investment.

Potential business owners can launch their own custom t-shirt business for under $10K and can run their business literally from a spare desktop.

Interested parties are encouraged to sign up for the next Digital HeatFX webinar.

Webinars, demonstrations, samples and Sales Consultants for this product will also be at the Dale Mabry Campus.


SpangleElite is an even smaller, more portable, not to mention more affordable version of the ProSpangle.

The SpangleElite produces bling designs and transfers that you just have to see and feel to believe.

The Future of ColDesi

Both the Westshore and Dale Mabry Campuses will be customer friendly with demonstrations, webinars and events held on a regular basis.

They are adding personnel to handle the increased demand and to serve existing customers better.
