Misprint Monday: Streaky

A clogged jet on an imaging device causes a streak across the entire graphic and nobody notices until the boss man comes walking through the shop (a fresh set of eyes always seems to catch the mistakes).  How does this happen?  It’s unbelievable and it’s embarrassing, but it’s reality and it happens to the best…

Domingo Gigante–Nunca se sabe de donde vendrá la inspiración!

A mediados y finales de los 90, la alta densidad y las impresiones dimensionales era lo que se llevaba. Ahora tenemos otra manera de imprimir y de trabajar y nos manejamos como pez en el agua. Antes, estaba constantemente por todas partes buscando inspiración para texturas y patrones que trabajar en una impresión dimensional. Parte…

You never know where inspiration will come from! Back in the mid to late 90’s, high density and dimensional printing was all the rage. We now had another print dimension to work with and I took to it like a duck to water.

We do a lot of re-label work, I mean a lot and much of our re-label work is direct screen-print.  Opportunity cost is one of my favorite terms commonly used by economists. It means giving up one alternative in favor of another, like using your production press to print interior labels. With that in mind,…

Misprint Monday: Charred Remains

The smell and the sight of smoke billowing from the out-feed of a dryer is a scary thing.  One brave employee reaches in with a broomstick to fish out a stuck (and now blazing) tee, another follows with a fire extinguisher to save the day.  This scenario has played out a few times over the…

Domingo Gigante–Un cubo de emulsión que es un poco como una tetera?

Un cubo de emulsión que es un poco como una tetera? Hey, a veces me gustan las pequeñas innovaciones mejor que las grandes. Se puede verter la emulsión mejor – más suavemente, con menos lío, y usted también puede hacerlo con una sola mano. Tener el cubo cerca de la torre de laca cuchara y…

Sponge Bob and His Friends

I’m always keeping my eyes open for cool or impressive techniques for shirts. I scan the attendees and the walls of the booths. There were three in the Rutland ink booth that caught my eye. The Sponge Bob print has a creative use of “blister base” used to portray Bob in all his spongey glory.…
