Please find some links and notes from the 2 Regular Guys Podcast. On today’s episode, we talk to Deborah Corn of Print Media Center about the convergences of our two worlds, garment decorating and ink on paper printing and the coming together of those two worlds at PrintingUnited in October in Dallas. Deborah is the Intergalactic Ambassador to The Printerverse and back in February, we interviewed several amazing guests at the ThreadX event in San Diego. We called those episodes, 2 Regular Guys and a Girl who Prints. Today we are going to hear a few snippets from those interviews and discuss our thoughts on what this means for the future of all of us together. Convergence is GOOD!
