Everyone is looking for the latest and greatest when it comes to making a buck and surviving a challenging economic environment. Our industry’s headlines routinely captivate and motivate us by focusing on new, cutting-edge developments in apparel decoration technology. Direct-to-garment printers, textile lasers, white ink, poly-performance apparel, shuttle-hook bobbins, digital transfers and more all challenge us to ask, “What if?” We engage our peers, attend webinars and walk trade shows looking for that new “thing” that will catapult our businesses to higher levels of success and profitability.
There is one thing in common that all shops in this industry share, and it is the reliance on our supply chain. We all need ink, screens, emulsion, shirts and a multitude of other products to keep our shops going.
