August 9th, 2013 Show Notes – High End Color Separations

August 9th Show Audio

Please find some links and notes from the 2 Regular Guys Podcast from August 9th, 2013, so you can get more details on some of the items we discussed. This show we brought in an industry expert on high end color separations. Some of you might know him as Dot Tone Dan… Dan Campbell of Dot Tone Designs. We also discussed the ISS Las Vegas Show briefly.

ISS Las Vegas Show update:
Have heard both good and bad from vendors about their results. Chris from Vapor told a colleague it was a fantastic show for him and have also heard other who said it was slow and hard to justify. Also asked a friend who was an attendee how it was. This is a long time screen printer who is also doing some sublimation and trust his opinion. He said that it was a waste of time and gas. He said the booths that were busy, were understaffed and the rest were staffed with Social Media Directors that were too busy posting on Twitter to talk to potential customers. He also said he doubted if he even bumps into one person while strolling the show.
