Episode 138 – Think Outside The T-Shirt

Show Notes

One thing is has become clear this year. That MOST of our new customers, and ones adding new machines to their shop, are doing a lot more than just apparel.
 
At every tradeshow, in every industry email and magazine, even in ColDesi emails you see more and more outside the norm.
 
Just recently we finished a video on making custom Whiskey glasses with DigitalHeat FX.
 
And the Embroidery Grip has been selling more and more because embroiderers are embellishing more than just polos.
 
Cutters and spangle machines are also doing a LOT more – especially for holiday items.
 
And of course – the king of NOT printing apparel is our UV printer lineup!
