A Quick Note from Scott Fresener

The leaves are falling and the T-Shirt business starts to level off and in some cases drops like a rock. It is time to work on holiday business and get what you can in the way of employee and customer gift shirts, holiday retail sales if you do retail, and gear up for hoodies, sweats and long sleeve shirts. Dust them off. Mike Fresener and I were at the SGIA Expo in Vegas in September and did a lot of live interviews. Follow the links below. And, maybe we can get on with our lives after the election. Whew….    Scott

SGIA Show Wrapup It was a great show with new "game changer" equipment.
We were at the SGIA Expo in Las Vegas in September and thought it was a great show. Yes, it was 80% wide format – BUT – the SGIA Expo still has a nice garment printing section including the large Garment Zone where Lon Winters/Graphic Elephants holds court and there are lots of exhibitors in a non-sales environment. What a place to learn. And, once again Lon pulled out all the stops to print a show stopping Elvis print!

And, the SGIA Expo is really a hardware show where everyone brings out their new stuff. There was a LOT of DTG at the show and the real show stopper/game changer was MHM from Austria showing the Digital iQ printer that combines the best of screen printing and digital. They were showing a "beta" of their new printer and it was a jaw dropper!

We did a great interview with them as one of our show videos and it really shows the machine and gives details. Watch it on our YouTube Channel HERE. There machine is so new that there is nothing on the MHM website about it. They were showing it for the first time and don't plan to take orders until late Spring at the FESPA show in Hamburg, Germany. BUT…… this is the future for high volume T-Shirt printing.

Facebook LIVE Videos from SGIA Watch eleven videos from the SGIA floor.
This year we decided to not worry about shooting show videos and then editing them. We used the latest Facebook LIVE and simply shot them LIVE from the show floor. It was SO easy and quick. We did Fourteen videos and most of them are GREAT! They are short and sweet and you can learn a lot from watching them – and see what you missed.

We even shot a T-Shirt Report from the Garment Decorators Zone with our good friend Richard Greaves. 

Check out all the videos at the T-Biz Network Facebook page. Make sure to Share them, Like them, and comment on them. We plan to do a lot more Facebook LIVE videos and events.

ISS Long Beach – This is THE show to attend!
You have heard us say this over and over. The Long Beach ISS Show is THE event of the industry. And this year it is going to be HUGE! In order to accomodate all the exhibtors the show has taken over the Long Beach Convention Center AND the Arena and even lobby areas for booths. That says a LOT about the size. It is our opinion that this show is the WORLD'S biggest and best T-Shirt Printing trade show.

Plus, they have a great seminar program including excellent pre-show workshops on a wide variety of topics. Of course THE best and newest pre-show workshop is being presented by – yours truely – Scott Fresener! The title is Everything You Wanted to Know About Color Separations. Details HERE. It is being held Thursday, January 19th from 10:00 to 5:00. It is "hands-on" – bring a laptop and follow along (as best you can).
