Baphomet is a made up deity used, by the Inquisition, to falsely accuse the Knights Templar of heresy. The name Baphomet first appears in trial transcripts for the Inquisition of the Knights Templar starting in 1307. Some think it may be a mispronunciation of the name Mohammed, the result of a middle ages version of the telephone game.
Baphomet first came into popular English usage in the 19th century during the debate and speculation on the reasons for the suppression of the Templars. It was then subsequently incorporated into disparate occult and mystical traditions. Baphomet is often confused with Satan/Lucifer even though the name does not appear in any books of the Christian Holy Bible or any other Christian texts before the Inquisition of the Templars.
Since 1856, the name Baphomet has been associated with a "Sabbatic Goat" image drawn by Eliphas Levi which contains binary elements representing the "sum total of the universe" (e.g. male and female, good and evil, on and off, etc.). Levi's intention was to symbolize his concept of "the equilibrium of the opposites", similar to the Chinese concept of Yin and Yang, resulting in a tradition that should create a perfect social order.

All-Over Print (AOP) is a printing method that uses dye-sublimation to print a design onto polyester. During the dye sublimation process the dye is absorbed into the fabric. Since, it is not printed on the surface, like most t-shirts, it provides for a fantastic soft-to-the-touch feel and superior breathability.
AOP is a more time consuming method than screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, so the prices are higher and the production times are longer, but the results are most definitely worth it.
Advantages of AOP:
The design won't peel off, unlike typical screen printing.
The design is part of the fabric of the item, so it will last as long as the item does.
The intensity of color is often unmatched.
Giclée (pronounced zhee-CLAY or often gee-CLAY) is a printing process that creates a museum quality, archival print. Special acid-free, paper is printed with fade resistant ink using a state-of-the-art, large format inkjet printer.
Gallery wrap is a style of displaying a canvas that doesn't show any visible staples or nails holding the fabric to the wooden stretcher bars. This style of canvas is intended to be hung unframed.
Mirrored edges (mirror wrap) is used to show the whole image on the main surface, rather than printing the edges of the image on the sides (image wrap) of the canvas frame. It is usually used when there is necessary detail on the edges of the image. Image wrap is used when the focal point of the image is in the center.
