This Friday the 2 Regular Guys will welcome Adrienne Palmer, the Editor of Screen Printing Magazine. We’ll be talking about trends in the garment decorating industry, social media marketing, podcasts, mentorship, and more. Join the conversation to learn more about what Adrienne is seeing out in the world of garment decorating as she leads Screen Printing Magazine.
Our regular listeners know this, but 2 Regular Guys are all about garment decorating, a bit of fun, and no rants or lectures or selling. We are not doing this for our employers, but rather for our industry. Since February 2013, The 2 Regular Guys have been the first and the most listened to garment decorating industry podcast on this planet! We are humbled by all of you tuning in each week. We work hard to bring you information that will make your business better, and our industry better. Take a look at our incredible weekly guest list and you’ll understand where this industry goes for news, interviews, and the heartbeat of garment decorating. Thanks for listening!

Aaron: Adrienne, we love talking podcasts let’s start there. Tell us about your new podcast.
Terry: Last week we shared a press release talking about your new Mentorship Program. What’s that all about? (How can our listeners participate?)
Aaron: Let’s spend some time talking about trends in the apparel decorating during Covid.
What are your thoughts about online selling?
Terry: The magazine title is Screen Printing, but I’ve heard you talk about DTG printing’s place in this new world.
Aaron: I know Screen Printing does surveying in the industry. What are you seeing as the apparel trends through this research?
Terry: Let’s take a slight shift to promoting your business through social media. This was growing fast before Covid. Talk to us about this type of promotion today.
Aaron: Adrienne, how can our listeners find you and Screen Printing magazine?

5 Things That Will Be Permanent after COVID-19
Things We Discovered That Worked Better
- Working from home either full time or part time will be the norm
- Online sales will continue to grow as all or part of your sales effort
- Social media marketing will continue to grow as all or part of your marketing effort
- Going forward you will likely know fewer and fewer of your customers face to face, so you’ll have to build relationships in other ways
- After paring down staff during COVID, jobbing out some of these same positions (accounting, art, marketing, etc.) will be more common
