Flatbed Technology Scores Big for Ministicks.com/Illostrative Gallerie

Flatbed Technology Scores Big for Ministicks.com/Illostrative Gallerie

Robbie Illos-Gerth runs two successful businesses in Buffalo, New York. Ministicks.com sells miniature custom printed hockey sticks, baseball bats and sports memorabilia, and Illostrative Gallerie designs and produces logos and marketing collateral for businesses and ad agencies.

When we think of floor graphics, we tend to think of digitally printed adhesive vinyl with a tough laminate stuck to a floor. You are likely very familiar with these applications in various retail settings, and may even have even used some of the great vinyl products available that are specifically designed for this purpose.
