Check out this sneak peek for a look at what’s in store.

Upgrading Your Business with a Large-Format Laser

Julia Schroeder

  • “Large-format machines utilize many of the same easy-to-use software that other smaller desktop models use.” — Derek Kern, Kern Laser
  • “The most important criteria when selecting the power of your laser machine is the primary application you will process most frequently with the laser.” — David Stevens, Trotec Laser
  • “You are able to engrave something as small as a peanut to as large as a 10-foot monument or bigger.” — Mandi Smallwood, AP Lazer

Key DTG Lessons for Improved Profitability

Shelley Widhalm

  • “I would choose DTG above DTF as long as I’m not printing on synthetic fibers. The feel is much better, and the washability is much better.” — Haziel Mitchell, RICOH DTG
  • “DTG is and will continue to be the dominant player in the market. The machines will get faster and more efficient.” — Harry Oster, Equipment Zone Inc.
  • “You can’t really do anything to limit the amount of ink you use to print an image, but you can make sure you are not ruining good shirts by ‘testing’ your images before going to production.” — Don Copeland, ColDesi Inc.

Getting Creative on Logos

Matt Charboneau, Storm Mountain Signs

  • “This article is for the design warriors out there who are disciplined to turn on their creativity at 8 a.m. and off again at 5 p.m.”
  • “Take time to stop, think, listen, and follow your own inner creative, inspirational resources (it’s the mojo that separates you from the accountants). This is the voice in your head that provides you the drive, focus, passion, and desire that helps propel your creative brain into the direction the design needs to go.”
