Backlit Junkie Gets His Fix Using Dye Sublimation
ISA ended Saturday at 4 pm. And I just wanted everyone to know that I got my ‘fix’ for backlit dye sublimation at the show.
The light box was a TREMENDOUS hit, and even if the pics from my phone don’t do it justice, I saw so many other people taking pictures of it, that I lost count.
These were both printed on Mutoh’s ValueJet 1948WX, our high-speed printer for all things dye sub. https://www.mutoh.com/products/valuejet-1948wx/
The same printer we used on our mugs in my last blog. https://www.thinkmutoh.com/mugging-it-up
The same printer that ISA (https://www.signs.org/isasignexpo) attendees were wowed by its incredible performance and aggressively competitive show pricing.
We often give show attendees incredible pricing for making their printer choices at the show. So if you haven’t been to a show you should check out show schedule. https://www.mutoh.com/company/events/ And check the other on this page as well, our Training, Wrap Classes and Dealer events.
It is such a thrill to see your own artwork pop so much with dye sublimation backlighting.But it is just as much a thrill to see others appreciate it while educating those who don’t know what dye sublimation is on the incredible opportunities it presents itself in the market. In fact, most of our booth was dye sub backlit.
The ValueJet 1938TX signage is backlit dye sub as were all of our other booth signage.
And the seascape image next to the signage is Chromalux (https://www.chromaluxe.com/), Tobe Hall and the people at Unisub provided that piece of art for our customer enjoyment and Ryan Holtzman from Chromaluxe provided a Point of Sale style announcement of their new product – EXT metal (EXT for both EXTended life for outdoor photography, and for EXTerior signage), that looked as bit as crisp and sharp as you would expect from these guys.
And of course we were handing out Mutoh glass cleaners on Vision Microsuade S/660, again supplied by my friend Mike Sanders, whose Pacific Coast Fabrics merged with Top Value Fabrics (https://www.topvaluefabrics.com/index.php)last year.
These are great giveaways that people keep and use. Mike is one of those guys who I consider my extended family in the industry. So now let me introduce you to my other brother Mike, Mike Compton at Top Value Fabrics.
I recently sat in on one of Mike’s webinars on…………….yes…………backlit.
If you are a member of SGIA (https://www.sgia.org/), like we are, get online and check it out.
Here is Mike and I standing in front of another both made with back litbacklitlimation.
Oh yeah, the backlit fix is in……….
