WB/CAMP: Water-Based Printing Summit

Last weekend, over 125 decorators converged in Northern California for a first-of-it’s-kind event: WB/CAMP

This water-based printing summit, powered by SGIA and hosted by Motion Textile, pulled together great minds from companies such as Green Galaxy, Matsui, Virus, Bella+Canvas, Douthitt, GSF, Ink Kitchen, M&R, MHM, Printavo, Ryonet, SAATI, SPSI, and SanMar, for two days of talks and printing demonstrations.  In the coming weeks we will be publishing a series of videos covering this event, but for now, pictures will tell the story…

Day-1 was packed with presentations from some of the industry’s best and brightest…

Our own Brett Bowden served as emcee

Cassie Stanczyk, of Bella+Canvas, is the first speaker of the day

Dave Makin, of SAATI, gave a technical master-class on screenmaking

How very special it was to have so many great people, in one place, sharing their knowledge and wisdom.  Events like WB/CAMP are most certainly the future of the decorated apparel industry and such events would not be possible without a generous group of sponsors and participating companies…
