  • From Printing United Alliance (most recently SGIA): As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our lives and businesses, PRINTING United and our great industry are not immune to such intrusion. It is with great disappointment to announce that we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s in-person expo in Atlanta.

    The unavoidable decision comes after extensive conversations, surveys, and projections that we have been navigating since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. These conversations were held with numerous entities surrounding all aspects of the show, including the team at Georgia World Congress Center, the city of Atlanta, Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security specializing in mass gatherings and local authorities. The health and safety of all our attendees and exhibitors remains paramount.

    While recreating the experience of being together under one roof is a challenge, we can certainly do the next best thing…create a comprehensive online experience like no other! By combining the strengths of our combined PRINTING United Alliance and NAPCO Media organizations, we are already working diligently to launch a unique PRINTING United experience to connect attendees with exhibitors and their latest technologies. Details will be forthcoming on this very shortly.

Terry: We’ve talked several times in the past about the downsizing of print production orders. Talk to us a little bit about that.

Aaron: How has this impacted your own business? Are you rethinking your approach to production?

Terry: Nate, has the introduction of short-run manufacturing such as DTG and Sublimation impacted the industry? In other words, has it changed the way our customer thinks?

Aaron: We always like to dust off the crystal ball here on 2 Regular Guys. Talk to us about the future of screen printed apparel in your eyes.

Terry: Let’s shift gears a little. We’ve run into each other at a lot of trade shows. What’s your anticipation of the next shows coming up, and will trade shows change in the future?

Aaron: Tell our listeners how they can find you.
