SGIA’s newest Workshop, Operation Sublimation, Mission: Wide-Format (May 13–14), will debut this spring, offering a thorough agenda on wide-format dye sublimation technology. Presented by industry experts Jonathan Read, of ErgoSoft US, and Ralph Terramagra, of Mutoh America Inc., this complete Workshop will help attendees who need to improve their product line, and provide support for those starting a new business.
“The wide-format dye sublimation printing market is growing rapidly,” said Jeff Burton, SGIA’s digital printing analyst. “Multiple markets are looking to soft signage as a viable alternative to rigid substrates or films, allowing shops to offer a wider array of options for their wide-format customers.”
Instruction will focus on all aspects of integrating dye sublimation into an existing business or starting a new business altogether. Attendees will learn about available sublimation ink technologies; RIP software for dye sublimation; color management for dye sublimation; costs and returns on investment; transfer and direct print; and flatbed and rotary heat presses.
Taking place in SGIA’s Digital Imaging Lab and classroom facility, in Fairfax, VA (a suburb of Washington, DC), the small-class setting is designed to help attendees master dye sublimation in a focused environment; learn from the industry’s top instructors, and walk away with confidence and skill.
