Reports from Stahls’ and Stahls’ Transfer Express team members on the recent Impressions Expo in Long Beach are rolling in. To summarize, the show was a great success. Why? Because we were able to see so many of our loyal customers in person again, and meet many new people.
It’s always wonderful to see friendly faces at a trade show, even if they are covered up with a mask. It doesn’t matter. Attendees to the show had to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test (there was an on-site Covid testing station). But despite all the restrictions, social distancing and mask-wearing, it was good to know the show did indeed go on. Thank you to everyone at Impressions who made it happen. It took a lot of courage and hope. We’re glad you held the event and we’re thrilled we were able to participate.
Heat Printing on Fire
One thing that seemed to stand out to all our team members is this: Heat printing is recognized by everyone as a true apparel decoration technology. Screen printers need it, embroiderers need it, team dealers, coaches, schools, small businesses need it. Everyone understands the value of being able to print on demand. Heat printing is the only decoration technology which allows you to print any quantity, any number of colors, on any fabric, on any location. And still make a profit.
People want to be able to have complete control over the quality of their custom garments. Heat printing is the solution.
Of course we’ve known and believed in this for many decades now (Stahls’ celebrates its 90th anniversary this year!). But it’s always rewarding to have others understand and acknowledge all the hard work and dedication we put into bringing the best heat printing solutions to you. This includes Hotronix heat presses, CAD-CUT heat transfer vinyl, custom transfers, pre-cut numbers and letters, patches, emblems and much more.
Stars of the Show
In addition to our team members, who were greeted by many as if they have celebrity status, there were a few other stars in the booth. The first question people ask when they stop in the Stahls’ or Stahls’ Transfer Express booth (it was a fantastic shared booth this year), is, “what’s new?” This year the answer was quite clearly our UltraColor MAX DTF transfers.
What is UltraColor MAX?
UltraColor™ MAX Direct to Film Heat Transfers allow apparel decorators to say yes to any job. This new heat printing technology produces a lightweight, stretchable and soft feel. Better yet, there are no color limitations when it comes to artwork. These transfers are perfect for highly detailed designs, including floating text. In seconds, you can heat apply left chest logos onto polos and half-zips, as well as the back of the shirt, sleeve or leg. UltraColor™ MAX goes where other types of logo printing doesn’t dare.
Plus, you also get the production factors your business needs. UltraColor™ MAX heat applies in a single step at a low application temperature, and peels hot — allowing you to decorate at the speed of NOW. No other printing technology allows this flexibility and ease of on-demand customization.
