October 25th Show Audio

Please find some links and notes from the 2 Regular Guys Podcast from the October 25th episode. On this episode the guys reviewed the 2013 SGIA Expo and recap what they saw. 

Terry: Just saw an image of the promo material for ISS Long Beach seminars, and we are on it. Pretty Cool!

SGIA Expo Recap

  • Trouble with destination locations
  • What’s New this Year at SGIA?
    • LED exposure units are around the show
    • M&R’s combination direct-to-screen machine, and combination LED exposure unit was very impressive
    • Neenah laser light garment transfer paper
      • Booths put together by engineers and inventors
    • Paper Ranch transfer paper with screen print underbase
    • CorelDraw nice discount on the program at the show, as with lots of booths.
    • The new Epson direct-to-garment printer

Terry’s disclaimer: The company Terry works for, Equipment Zone, is one of the new Epson DTG re-sellers.

  • An interesting name on the list of new Epson re-seller is Stahls. First entry into D2 and they would seem to be the 300lb gorilla in this. What does that tell you about where our market is heading?


Announce our first annual 2 Regular Guys industry awards. We don’t have a cool name like a Tony or Oscar award yet so we are open for suggestions. I would guess there will be a chicken wing on the award somewhere and maybe a beer…

We compiled 7 awards that we would like to give out and we will be posting these on our site with an opportunity for the listeners to make nomination in these seven category’s as well as suggest one or 2 awards. By the end of November we will compile the nominations and the awards will be votes on by you the listeners throughout the month of November.

Then on our big year-end show on December 27th we will be announcing the winners and hopefully having as many of them as we can on the show. That show will be a special 1 hour show so I’m looking forward to that.

  1. Best new product in the industry
  2. Best sales rep from any company
  3. Best customer service from any company
  4. Most helpful forum poster on any industry forum
  5. Best trade show seminar
  6. Best industry trade show (sponsor company and location)
  7. Best guest on the 2 Regular Guys Podcast

Be sure to give us your nomination HERE.
