The Critical Need for (Boring) “Procedures”

The Critical Need for (Boring) “Procedures”

New post from atkinsontshirt: 

It’s a bit risky to write about a subject that literally will cause massive readership injuries when forehead’s everywhere will collectively slam into the table as readers start falling asleep.  Zzzzzzzzzzz.  Bam!

That’s right.  An article about procedures and why they are important.  Eyelids are already drooping.
Why would anyone write about that?  It’s sooooo boring.  Nobody will read it.  Well, I’ve done crazier things… Maybe if I make the article funny enough you’ll keep reading.  Who knows you might learn something!

How to Profile Dryer Temperature Output

How to Profile Dryer Temperature Output

The dryer performs a very important job in a screen-printing shop. If it's not working properly it can result in the ink that cracks, or falls off after a garment is washed. Achieving the required temperature to completely fuse plastisol ink should not be a guessing game. 

Just like any other high-performance piece of equipment, the more you understand how it operates, the easier it is to use.

What is a pre-registration system, and should I run one?

What is a pre-registration system, and should I run one?

The question should not be whether to use a registration system, but which one to implement. A registration system is just that: a system. It combines the components in a printer's workflow including the art department, the screen room, and the production floor.

Pushing for Excellence

Pushing for Excellence

New post from atkinsontshirt: We all want better.  It’s easy to have a cynical eye and throw out hand grenades disguised as comments or “helpful suggestions”…but do we ever stoop down and assist in the heavy lifting?  In our own companies, we have different levels of employees.  Some are fantastic, but most are probably average.  Not everyone is a rockstar, although we wish they would be.  That’s why our opinions of companies change over time based on our interactions with them.
That’s why you have to push for excellence every day.
In the decorated apparel industry, our orders can go through many hands as they start from order entry, art or digitizing, actual production, shipping, and finally invoicing.  There are all sorts of ways things can go miserably wrong if we take the eye off of the ball.  Fumble!
I’m happy to report that this is constantly true, because lately I’ve been talking to more new customers than ever.  I’m not even in sales.  People are dissatisfied with their current decorator for mostly two reasons.
