Digital Diehards

  • The new website is nice. Big and bold banners to support the articles are very attractive. The minimalist search page is cool. I like how it opens up and hides the rest of the content… I also listened to a recent podcast with the owner from Big Printing. It was great. [Editor’s Note: You can watch the Let’s Talk About It webinar in the video section of screenprintingmag.com.] — Gavin StGeorges, Proud Tshirts, Miami, Florida
  • Love it all! Keep going. Get more content out in between magazines. Do more live Q & A’s, live interviews, something off the cuff without editing involved. — Jeremy Picker, Amb3r Creative, Denver, Colorado
Stuck in the Middle
  • I love the digital edition, but my heart still loves the magazine. — Robert Francis, ScreenPrintPlus, Naperville, Illinois
  • I miss the paper magazine, but I love the interaction and ability to pack more into stories. — Andy MacDougall, MacDougall Screen Printing, Royston, British Columbia
Print 4Ever
  • It appears you’re driven by digital printing with very little knowledge of the real environment of profitability, long-term customer commitment, and product quality. — Steve Knight, Dynagraphics Screen Printing, Holly Springs, North Carolina
  • I am old fashion and like to read a magazine. — John Wilhelmsen, Distinct Impression, Tucson, Arizona
  • Screen Printing magazine has always been the industry standard. When I was first starting out in the mid-80s, your magazine, Impressions, and a deluge of other publications were out there. Now the air has cleared and only a couple are left, and you are still a leader. I’m still an old-school magazine guy. — Bill Bischoff, Bischoff Design/Atomic Tees, Modesto, California
More Thoughts from the Shop Floor
  • Clubhouse has been fantastic. Great motivation, good book reviews, good business insight, and I have booked eight Zoom meetings to convert to fulfillment stores. We have converted 100 percent of our leads from Clubhouse. — Alison Banholzer, Wear Your Spirit Warehouse, Huntingtown, Maryland
  • I am very interested in trying out the new District DM130DTG blanks for DTG printing. I’ve been told they work well right out of the box, which, if true, is a game changer. — Chris Schultz, IT Sportswear & Promotions, Augusta, Georgia
  • I believe we’re poised to have a booming year if and when the economy opens up. Already shops are getting busier, and we could see a dramatic sales explosion soon. Our challenge is that it may be sudden. Are you prepared to have 10 times the orders in-house three weeks from now? We won’t know when this will happen, so start preparing by looking for efficiency, infrastructure, process improvement, and cross-training improvements. Get ready! Overall, I’m excited for our industry. Sales are coming back, people are talking about new processes, equipment, and methodologies. Where is print-on-demand going? What about hybrid printing? Not to mention the pandemic has allowed shops to change the way they sell by taking money upfront, so many are in a better financial position than they were a year ago. There is excitement in the air. You can feel it. — Marshall Atkinson, Atkinson Consulting, Mesa, Arizona
  • I’m feeling optimistic. There seems to be a lot of pent-up energy for events. Companies see an opportunity and are spending money on marketing efforts. It’s gonna be a good year. — Rick Poore, Shirts101, Lincoln, New England
  • Does anyone ever feel like more mistakes happen when things are (stupid COVID) slow? Or if not mistakes, slower response and problem solving? I feel like I have COVID mush brain…. Where did my A game go? LOL! Also, I’m seeing many mistakes from companies we subcontract from (embroidery especially). Yikes! — Tracey Johnston-Aldworth, Traces Screen Printing,
    Waterloo, Ontario
