Spring busy season is in full bloom, and we’re more energized than ever after meeting so many of you at the recent Atlantic City Imprinted Sportswear Show and the NBM Show in Irving, Texas. If you were able to attend either show, thank you for stopping by and learning more about heat printing. March Madness has a different meaning for custom garment printers. We are always glad to help educate visitors about heat printing technology. Heat printing is becoming more popular than ever, thanks to continually evolving adhesives with lower temperatures, amazing stretch and the right rebound for application on any type of fabric. Heat printing allows you to create any type of effect, from neon or metallic to athletic or reflective, in any quantity on any type of fabric. Our industry trade shows are more than just an opportunity to meet suppliers and vendors face to face. A good trade show lets you try and see products you didn’t know existed, it lets you feel what a water-based transfer or a digital print feels like. (If you weren’t able to attend and still want your free samples, click here) You can see the latest design trends like textured patches and silicone heat printing. You can see how to print on performance wear. If you’ve never printed team jerseys, you can learn how to do that as well. We also gave people a peek at our new Spirit Sale platform. This summer, you’ll be able to sign up for STAHLS’ Spirit Sale™ , an ecommerce platform for small to medium businesses built specifically for heat printers, by heat printers. I’ll be explaining more about how it can help your business in the near future. For now, you can sign up to be placed on our VIP list to get more information: http://bit.ly/f-ssl Josh Ellsworth debuted the platform at the shows and also on a live Facebook presentation on April 1. (It already has been viewed over 2500 times and there are over 260 comments). We know that you have a lot of questions and we will answer all of them. We know you are all very busy getting ready for an outstanding spring season. Please remember that we are here to help you print the garments your customers have ordered…on time and on budget. We have hundreds of how-to videos available 24/7 (like the one below, which is very popular right now) and we have extended hours for ordering custom transfers. You can order up to 3PM EST for same day shipping on many items you may need.
