He’ll cover workflow requirements and generally how to make the chaotic more organised and the complex more simple. Colin Gillman will be chatting to Colin Marsh, managing director of Resolute DTG, to get his insight into the potential in the DTG market and how sign-makers can get involved. Colin will also interview Magnus Mighall, RA Smart, and discuss how easy is it to get into producing personalised apparel with a DTG printer. Don’t miss the Technical Session: Business Opportunities in Customisable Products, with Phil McMullin and Tom Owers, Epson UK. Phil and Tom will talk about the growth in the market for personalised, high-quality garments and customised gifts. The event will end with a Talking Heads session: Grow your business with Textile Print in the Décor & Furnishings markets – where Jack Gocher and Colin will be joined by Garry Brown, YPS and Beth Travers, BoBo1325, to hear first-hand about the opportunities in textile printing and the expert knowledge that’s essential to grow your business.
