Great Trade Show Booth

Note the beer tap in the foreground. KIWO really has the ideal booth in our industry. They have their DTS unit so you can see it working, they have their  best most knowledgeable staff, and they know how to be hospitable and friendly, and of course beer helps with that. More technical posts from the…

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…

La Cocina de tinta se va a la FESPA Digital 2014 – Transferencias

A pesar de ser un show digital, la impresión digital directa no ha impedido otras formas de decoración, ni ha parado la innovación de otra manera. La transferencia es una de las técnicas que tienen más fuerza, aquí vemos nuevas formas o mejoras para las transferencias. Éstas resisten la migración del tinte o pueden ser…

The Ink Kitchen goes to FESPA Digital 2014– part seven: More Transfers

FESPA digital 2014 had all kinds of decoration innovation and another we saw was old school toner based transfers, with a bright white toner for dark garments.

The Ink Kitchen goes to FESPA Digital 2014– part six: Transfers

Although a digital show, direct digital printing has not stopped other forms of decoration, nor stopped innovation in other forms. Transfers were one form going strong, here we see new forms or improvements for transfers that resist dye migration or can stretch with the new fabrics, apply to odd shaped substrates (shoes!) or machines that enable quick…

The Ink Kitchen goes to FESPA Digital 2014– part five: Environmental Approach

Why a car in an environmental post? We rented this Audi A1 to make our factory tours while at the FESPA in Germany. Great sporty car, no problem doing 110 MPH or more on the Autobahn. However, its diesel engine also had this baby getting almost 60 miles per gallon. It also has innovative environmental features such…

Web Wednesday – Continental Clothing

This sign for the Fair Wear Foundation was outside a t-shirt shop selling pretty typical tourist shirts in Heidelberg Germany. I asked the owner about the Fair Trade shirts and whether any consumers there cared about that. She looked at me like I was crazy and said, “yes, of course.” I think that in the…

The Beauty of Craftsmanship

A booth with a display of furoshiki, tradtional Japanese wrapping cloths, caught my eye at FESPA Digital last week. It was a Japanese company called Denatex, who were promoting their new zero-emission, smoke-free sublimation transfer system. They collaborated with a traditional furoshiki maker from Kyoto to create their display items, which were beautiful. And they were handing out squares of printed…

Domingo Gigante– FESPA Digital

Imprimir sobre ropa realmente ha evolucionado mucho y el mejor lugar para verlo es en los ganadores de los premios FESPA 2014. EEUU lideraba el mundo de la impresión pero los ganadores de este año eran de Rusia y Polonia. Cuentan con detalles increíbles en 3D e impresiones lenticulares, el resto del mundo está en…

The Ink Kitchen goes to FESPA Digital 2014– part four

The FESPA digital show in Munich was not only a great exposition on what is going on in printing, but it also shows the potential for trade shows themselves to be so much more than what we typically see in the US of A. This is not exactly what we see when we go for…
