36 Call It Education
Take a look around at any given moment, and
you're bound to see some form of print. From the
shirt on your back to the cellphone in your pocket
to the sports arena where your favorite team
plays, print is on display everywhere. So why don't
people know about it? Andy MacDougall dives into
why those outside our industry aren't making the
connection, and what we can do about it.
Watch for Ongoing Improvements in DTG Inks
While some diehard screen printers may still be wary of direct-togarment printing technology, many are embracing DTG as a way to
complement their analog operations. And as more and more shops turn
to DTG for short runs, full-color prints, and customized products, OEMs
have made strides refining DTG machines and ink. Explore recent
improvements in DTG inks and learn what may be on the horizon.
