Anticipate and Preempt Change to Improve your Business Image and Bottom Line.

The only thing we can expect is change! So…before it’s upon you, check out your options to improve your screen or graphics printing company’s bottom line by expanding with ways to capture every bit of potential business that presents itself. Especially for customers who just want one shirt or other smaller type orders, it’s essential to serve them…they’re essential to build/maintain your customer base. Really, you need to check out the latest heat transfer technology that is shaking up our industry.

Even for the ‘purists’ who snub heat transfer printing feeling that it isn’t real printing, please understand that the newest transfer papers and equipment are technologically impressive and will continue to allow you to create and please your customers at the same time.

Do you have an HP injet printer? If yes, purchase some SingleJet™ heat transfer paper. The result will be brilliant, vivid color bursts of design that appear when printed on white and light color fabrics. You can also use this paper to print a photo; flat color design text, block graphics and spot colors. It can be used with a heat press or basic home-type iron.

These are the newest trio of superior producing papers: SingleJet™ heat transfer paper for inkjet printers,SingleStep™ weedless, heat transfer paper for laser printers and SinglePrint for multi-surface printing @ http://www.rhinotechinc.com. Spend a lot or spend a little at $10.99 for a 10 pack of 8.5″ x 11″ SingleJet™ paper or $1,245 for a laser printer, heat press & a 100 pack of 8.5”x11” SingleStep™ Weedless Laser Paper.

Be the force that will change your destiny.   Image

This is SingleJet™!

 

An addendum: SingleStep™ is rapidly becoming the most requested heat transfer laser paper due to its natural self-weeding capability that transfers the toner, not the background film; for the fact that a final design appears as if it were screen-printed onto the fabric. And it uses a one sheet process to print on white and light colored t-shirts, hats and other products.

 

To decorate DARK fabrics, SingleStep™ can be used with Textile Metallic Foil to add texture;the color and design pop. This step offers immediate, value-added highlights.

 

SingleStep ™ can be used on most color laser copiers or color laser printers (both the older low temperature color laser copiers/printers that use fuser oil and the newer high temperature color laser copiers/printers that do not use fuser oil). It will not work on ink jet printers.

 

RhinoTech will demonstrate SingleStep ™ at ISS/Long Beach, Jan. 18-20, 2013 on Booth 255. Jonathan Monoco of Catspit Productions will be available to share his experiences with this product and other RhinoTech products/equipment.

Learn How To Screen Print Tee Shirts At Home

Here’s a video about a new product made by RhinoTech. I really wish I had a digital thermostat on my heat press because I think it would have helped me out a little in working with this paper but overall I liked the results very much. It’s nice to be able to do a self weeding process in one step rather than having to do the adhesive sheet at a different temperature and the pressing at a higher temperature like most 2 part self weeding heat transfer papers. Now what I want to do hopefully over the weekend is wash some test shirts I did and do a comparison write up for the blog. I think that would be nice to see. Maybe I can do a picture of before and after.

The new video is called, “1 Step Self Weeding Color Laser Heat Transfer Paper.” This…

SingleStep™self-weeding using a single-sheet process to transfer a solid image without the background.

This is so simple to use and offers a way to add value to your current screen printing business. As mentioned in the video, be sure to have an accurate temperature control on the heat press and a proper printer. It makes a world of difference in the end result and you will have happy customers .

Epic. Legendary. Larger-than-life.

Wearing his favorite military jacket purchased in London.

His Star Spangled Banner still rocks our 4th.  And his image endures with screen printed designs by Slingshot T-Shirts.

Have a happy, safe celebration.

 

Sustainable Screen Printing – Motion Toward Functional Harmony.

This small, screen printing shop strives to offer sustainable, fairly-traded t-shirts and other products that are screen printed. Check out their website at www.sustainablescreenprinting.com. It’s a great source with lots of practical information besides showcasing their products and business.

This is their Modus Operandi that is: We print t-shirts! (among other things).

We seek to work with businesses, organizations, musicians, artists, crafts-people and anyone who would like to see their vision become an amazing screen-printed reality. We are here to promote beautiful situations and empowering surroundings for whole living.

Sus•tain: v. 1. To keep in existence; maintain. 2. To supply with necessities or nourishment. 3 To keep from falling or sinking. 4. To support the spirits or resolution of; encourage. 5. To endure or withstand: sustain hardships. [< Latin. sustinere, hold up.]–sus-tain´a•ble adj. -American Heritage Dictionary

Sustainability– “…meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet there own needs.” -1987 Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development

What does it mean to use sustainable practice in screen printing?

Small is Beautiful~ 1st we are a small shop. Being small allows for great efficiency in the use of resources and materials, such as water, electricity, ink, and  other tools of the trade, while still being able to handle large volume orders.

There are several other practices we use to bring our products closer to an ideal of sustainability.

•We use water-based inks, which have a much lower environmental impact than the pvc-based industry standard.

•We print on garments made of 100% certified organic cotton.

•We print on garments that are sweat-free, either American-made or in foreign facilities using fair-trade standards.

This does not mean our products and our process is perfect. We are always researching and tuning our process to provide a product that creates the least possible impact on our home, the Earth.

Hope you enjoyed this information as we all strive to consciously be sensitive to Mother Earth.

 

 

 

More Tips in the Social Media Realm

Thanks to BrandLove for the incredible 9 tips toward Building Your Personal Brand on LinkedIn. I worked the tips on my personal page to highlight my business and business page on LinkedIn. Here are the results:

Tip # 1 regarding Completeness of Profile: I agree that you should complete each section on the profile, but because I really want to highlight my business and not my personal profile, some sections (sadly) are not as complete as I’d like them to be.  Following Tip # 4 (rearranging profile), however, I moved the incomplete sections to the bottom of the page to emphasize a focus on my company and key words. Eventually, all sections will be finished.

Tip # 2: Regarding a Vanity URL. I created one. It was easy by just following the steps, as described. And I agree, it will be so much easier and less time consuming to find me and my business on LinkedIn.

Tip # 3: Regarding the creation of “sexier, more appealing links, again, I followed the directions and named my sites instead of just using the plain old Blog moniker. I used all three website links; though I’m not sure they’re sexier, at least they now have a more explicit description. These changes should definitely “help optimize my profile and drive Google PageRank to our other web properties.”

Tip # 4: Rearranging my Profile was easy. Again, I just followed the steps and moved the areas that I felt weren’t as complete to the bottom of the profile. Now my profile is highlighted with all complete sections at the beginning. And my business information, including the blogs I’ve posted, will also show up more clearly.

Tip # 5: Regarding Search Engine Optimization of Your Profile, I took this to heart and went to town. Each section now focuses on key words used in my business and industry.  I want our business to be easily extracted from all other companies in my industry and by increasing the number of key words we have the potential to be found by increased numbers of people.  I’m excited about the new format.

 Tip # 6: I changed my headline to emphasize key words closest to my business and industry.  In this way, LinkedIn is more likely to pick up my profile/business for those searching for screen or graphics printing or similar words. Optimize, optimize, optimize!

Tip # 7: Regarding Joining other Groups, I followed this tip prior to reading the tip by initially joining groups as soon as I developed a LinkedIn profile. I continue to learn how to navigate the four groups I’ve connected and have to say that I have connected with some exceedingly helpful group members. I intentionally kept the original number small until I learned the basics of belonging to groups. The only downside (that is also an upside, I suppose) is that I was  overloaded initially with requests to follow/like members on  FB and Twitter. It’s calmed down a bit, but seeing all those requests initially upped my anxiety level too much. Now it’s under control.

Tip # 8: I love this tip about adding Applications! Again, I followed the directions and immediately became linked.  Some great links are listed and I encourage you to try this step. I’m going to add more.

Tip # 9:  I’m taking the liberty of just sharing the tip in its entirely because it’s great the way it was written. Here’s how to Build Your Network. Once your profile is in good shape, work on building your network. Here are some things to keep in mind: when asking to connect with someone, use “we’ve done business together” rather than “friend.” Be sure to personalize any requests to connect with how you know the person or where you met or who you have in common.  If you do decide to try to connect with someone who may not know you well, be absolutely sure that you defend your network invite in the personal note section, such as saying you just purchased their book or saw them speak at a major conference. If you invite people to your network and they mark your invitation as someone they do not know, you will be banned (temporarily) from inviting new people to your network unless you know their email address.

 Thanks for following. I hope this industry-related news will help you be even more successful.
