Registration Opens for First-Ever Water-Based/Camp

Two-day event features water-based printing education and demonstrations in Motion Textile’s state-of-the-art facility

Fairfax, Va. — Registration is open for the inaugural WB/Camp, a first-of-its-kind summit on water-based ink printing, powered by the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association’s (SGIA) THREADX conference. Hosted by Motion Textile (Sacramento, Calif., area) September 20 - 21, 2019, the event will feature expert-led educational sessions and live demonstrations in a state-of-the-art production environment.

WB/Camp“Water-based printing is no longer optional for the modern decorator — it’s a requirement,” said Tom Davenport, Founder, Motion Textile. “It not only expands your decoration capabilities, but also your potential clientele, and WB/Camp is a chance to experience water-based printing like never before.”

“There’s a transition going on in the apparel world with pressure from larger brands like Nike and Adidas to use water-based inks over plastisol,” added Johnny Shell, Vice President, Print Technology and Training, SGIA. “We wanted to create an event that would alleviate some of the pain points and help anyone new to this technology better understand it.”

WB/Camp WB/Camp’s first day will include a lineup of industry leaders, including experts from Matsui and Virus Inks discussing different water-based ink types, fabric considerations, variables and the requirements to control them, art preparation practices, technology integration and more. Attendees will then see these concepts in action on day two in the Motion Textile production facility, where multiple manual and automatic press demonstrations will illustrate a variety of printing techniques and essential press parameters.

“It’s rare you have the chance to be in this type of production environment, learning the latest technology in water-based ink from the people who make and design this product, while actually being able to apply it,” said Davenport.

Registration for WB/Camp is $299 for SGIA members and $399 for nonmembers. The event is sponsored by Bella + Canvas, Douthitt Corporation, Ink Kitchen, Motion Textile and SGIA/THREADX.
