Are You Finished Yet? Part 2
When I began this article on finishing, I made the assumption that finishing was something that always occurred at the end of the printing process. After all, it is called 'finishing.'

Using a Price List Tool
Many businesses rely on a pricing list for their customer bids. This is especially true for new business owners who are learning not only what it takes to be a good printer, but also what it takes to be a good business owner.

Color Management Basics, Part 2
In Part 2, we will discuss some of the tools that you must have if your goal is to achieve consistent and repeatable color.

Industrial Inkjet Printing on Glass: Part 1, Flat Glass
In theory, any business with a wide-format flatbed printer with UV-curable inks can print directly on glass. But in reality, it's not that simple.

The Evolving Soft Signage Market: Part 1
The global printing industry has changed dramatically over the past decade. Where vinyl, plastic and paper were once the primary substrates of choice for signage, textiles have begun to take center stage.

Invasion of the Moratoriums
Sign moratoriums are ordinances that temporarily restrict usage of a particular area. This allows a municipality to study potential effects and establish new or revised regulations.

Are LEDs Generic? Aren't They All The Same? Simply Put, NO!
Most buyers do not consider or even understand what really makes a creditable long lasting LED package, let alone the manufacturing differences. Let's discuss these differences in a somewhat generic way.

Successful & Stunning Vehicle Wraps: What You Need to Know, Part 2
In Part II of this article, we cover the correct ways of printing and laminating, installation, and delivery of the final product.

Optimizing Art Files For Garment Production
Regardless of the type of garment decorating you do, it is always important to set up and optimize your files properly prior to production, to make sure to get the best possible end product.

Best of Both Worlds: Specialty Graphics Shops Complement Screen with Digital - and Vice Versa
Wide-format printers are increasingly 'hybrid' shops, operating a mélange of analog and digital equipment.

Banner Finishing Roundtable 2016
The final stage in a banner's construction is the finishing process, which really determines how and where it will be displayed. That's where many finishing solution choices come into play.

Americans with Disabilities Act: A Quick Review
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits any employer with 15 or more employees from discriminating against a qualified individual with a disability. Let's learn the basics together.

Tools, Cleaning Supplies & Equipment for Vinyl Installers
An excerpt from the 2014 PDAA Vinyl Installation Proficiency Guide, that will aid anyone in their installation career.

2D Digital Printing to 3D Additive Manufacturing: Add a New Dimension?
In addition to print providers, manufacturers and distributors that have been associated with 2D digital inkjet printing have been expanding their interests to include 3D digital print.

Traditional Die Cutting Versus Digital Die Cutting
With increasing demand comes the growing need for better and faster technology in all sectors of the trade. This includes die cutting, a constantly evolving finishing technique that relies heavily on its relevance in the field.

Media Facades: High-Tech Digital Building Wraps
Now with LED video screens comes the outdoor advertising impulse to create the ultimate building wrap, a media facade, which is an LED video screen that completely covers the front of a building and presents a kaleidoscope of imagery that dances across the building.

Dynamic Digital Signage: Unlocking the Profit Secrets
Whether you are a small sign shop with a single roll printer, or a large sign shop making electrical signs, the profit secrets regarding dynamic digital signage (DDS) are the same. There is no doubt in my mind that DDS displays are, in fact, signs, and if we (as an industry) don't stake our rightful claim, we will miss this exciting opportunity.

Air Supplies
There are probably as many different techniques in the use and operation of a neon plant as there are glassblowers, and the only thing that is important is what works best for you.

Optimizing Art Files For Garment Production
Regardless of the type of garment decorating you do, it is always important to set up and optimize your files properly prior to production, to make sure to get the best possible end product.

National WW I Museum: Signs That Narrate Its Remembrance
The National World War I Museum was created as a monument to both honor the history of that war and also as a monument to the Americans and Europeans who fought and died in WW I.
