M&R to Host SGIA Road Trip

May 19, 2017

M&R Cos., Roselle, Ill., recently announced it will host Specialty Graphic Imaging Association’s (SGIA) Road Trip: Apparel Decorating for Insiders event at its headquarters.

To be held June 9-10, event sponsors include EasiWay Systems Inc., Fruit of the Loom and Rutland Plastic Technologies Inc. Charlie Taublieb, founder and owner of Taublieb Consulting, will lead two days of comprehensive training in prepress and printing techniques. The workshop also will include a tour of M&R’s manufacturing facilities and a visit to Culture Studio’s 50,000-square foot garment-decorating facility.

“The Road Trip format adds opportunity to convenience because it gives attendees access to top-notch facilities,” says Johnny Shell, vice president of technical services, SGIA. “M&R and Culture Studio are industry-leading operations. We’re very grateful to both of them for opening their doors to us for this workshop event.”

The road trip is aimed at company owners, prepress teams, screen-making specialists and production managers, but virtually everyone involved in digital and screen printing will find it beneficial. Training will include demonstrations and hands-on experience.

According to SGIA, the workshop will include advanced screen-making techniques using the latest high-tech equipment; press setup and registration; critical factors for printing and curing today’s inks, including plastisol, water-based, HSAs and special effects; and advanced printing techniques.

Apparel Decorating for Insiders costs $299, with a 25% discount for SGIA members. The event will be held from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. each day. Dinner will be provided the first day and lunch will be provided both days.
