Equipamiento que nos encanta- Sistemas Epson

Algunas piezas de equipamiento han progresado mucho y ahora lo tienen todo- calidad, precio y fiabilidad. Nos gusta mucho nuestra Epson 4900 y la tinta que conseguimos de SPSI. Nos encanta el rasgado de Wasatch y nuestro chip para resetear (quizá aquí esté exagerando un poco). Básicamente ya no pienso en la película. Sé que…

Printing $100 Garments

As a contract decorator taking responsibility of your customer’s product can be nerve-racking, especially when the numbers are big or the per piece price is high.  And of course high-end products always have a high-end difficulty factor.  We recently ran a print on some very pricey jackets by Lululemon.  Aside from taking our time to…

Web Wednesday – Crookedbrook.com

In my travels on the web, I ran into crookedbrook.com  I love the work that they do and I absolutely flipped for this great line on their site: “If your only concern is “how much per thousand stitches?” let’s not waste each others time. Search engine results pages are full of companies that offer “Discount Custom…

Web Wednesday – Kung Fu Nation

Bill Mooney and Barbara Herring started Tannis Root and Kung Fu Nation in 1987. They serve the music business and are very good at it.  They are good people and it is always a wonderful thing to see nice folks succeeding. In fact, I think they succeed because they are good folks. Their customers really like them…

Misprint Monday – A Real Reversal

My buddy, Ms. Bonnie Kilgore once said, “Show me somebody that don’t make no mistakes, and I’ll show you somebody that ain’t doin’ nothin’.” Mistakes are going to happen despite our best efforts to avoid them. We had a four person brain freeze last week. There in plain sight is how the shirts were supposed…

Lockout, Tag-Out, or Tap-Out

We were recently audited by our workers comp carrier.  The inspector seemed to be most concerned about whether or not we have a “lockout-tag-out” center and written policy.  We do.  During similar inspections performed by OSHA and other outside parties this always seems to be the area of highest concern.  Why?  Granted, automated presses are…

Pad Printing

We have a guest post today from good printer and our good buddy Brett Bowden, El Capitan of Printed Threads in Dallas, Texas. [divider type=”black|thin|thick|short|dotted|dashed” spacing=”10″] There are many ways to print interior tags on shirts.  Tom’s post a while back showed the small screen printing presses that have hit the market in the past…

Dov Charney leaves American Apparel

Dov Charney was terminated by American Apparel last week. I see quite a few articles calling him a “sleezebag” and lots of folks really seem to enjoy seeing him fall. There are quite a few inaccuracies in the reporting, and most people don’t know the man. One article says he was partly fired for using…

Web Wedneday – Recycling Ink Blues, Recycling Blue Inks

We took some ink just sitting on the shelf (295C) and made it into an ink we needed to print today (539C) We test drove the Rutland recycling system within their DMX software and it worked out great. This is no cure for getting rid of all the ink we all have sitting around, but…

FREE SHIRTS!!!!!!!!!

I have a radio show on a local community station near me, WMBR. In honor of Willie Nelson playing in town today we gave away a free Farm Aid shirt. Now I just started this show “If 6 was 9” a couple of weeks ago and haven’t really built a following yet, but when I offered…
