For most of us, heat printing is not new. However, as we have mentioned several times and in many articles, blog and social media postings, the demand for heat printing is EXPLODING with new opportunities for many business owners. This was evidenced at the recent ASI Show in Orlando, Florida, where our experienced heat printing crew led by Carleen Gray put together a three-hour workshop that turned into a five-hour workshop because the folks just couldn’t get enough information! It was standing room only and everyone walked away with something they made. We were happy to oblige and kept the presses running and the information flowing as people were able to get their hands on the heat presses and see for themselves how easy it is to decorate on demand. Here’s what Pat from Ink-Link had to say about the experience: “Went to other Education classes for 2 days and Stahls’ Imprint Track was the BEST class.” Donna from Sharpe Marketing also passed on this quote to our presenters, “I had to come by and tell you how great your class was. I learned so much. It was the best thing ever.”
Here’s the description:
In this in-depth, hands-on half-day workshop, distributors and decorators will learn how easy it is to add heat-printing decoration to their existing operation to generate more business. Besides learning what’s involved in offering samples and services to clients as well as startup equipment, materials and costs, you’ll learn how to print everything from promotional products to shirts to caps to bags to team uniforms. Plus, you’ll try cutting your own vinyl graphics with a cutter and using glitter, carbon fiber and other special effects materials. By the time you leave this action-packed workshop, you’ll also know how to:
•Print four-color graphics in four seconds
•Print caps and bags with full-color digital graphics
•Understand all decorating options, fabrics they adhere to and durability
•Use all of the latest heat presses to see which type is the right choice for your business.
So if you are headed to the next ASI Show or just wanted to learn more about any of the decorating methods we’ve mentioned here, we can help you get started.
