FAIRFAX, Virginia — August 2, 2011 — SGIA is proud to bring back the Digital Apparel
Production Zone to the 2011 Expo (New Orleans, October 19-21). At this exciting Expert Advice Zone,
garment decorators can learn about similarities and differences among the various decoration
choices, as well as see cut and sew workflow demonstrations — a new element added this year.
“While dye-sublimation has always been a component of the Digital Apparel Production Zone,
this year, we’re incorporating a cut and sew workflow that will feature a wide-format
dye-sublimation printer, a heated calender, a laser cutter and sewing,” said Johnny Shell, SGIA’s
Vice President of Technical Services. “Attendees will see live demonstrations of the equipment and
be able to envision a complete digital cut and sew workflow.”
Don’t miss these participating companies in the Zone:
• All American Manufacturing & Supply Co.
• Axiom America
• BelQuette Inc.
• Graphics One, LLC
• Next Wave Media Solutions
• OmniPrint International
• Stahls’ ID Direct
• i-Group Technologies, LLC
“We saw tremendous interest in digital decorating technologies,” said 2010 Digital Apparel
Production Zone participant Doug Dewitt, Conde Systems. “It was great for attendees to enter a
no-sales Zone that allowed people to focus on the technology and the process.”
In addition to the Digital Apparel Production Zone, be sure to check out other educational
sales-free Zones at this year’s Expo such as the Screen Printed Apparel Training Zone, PDAA
Graphics Application Zone, Narrow Format Zone, Industrial Imaging Zone, Printed Electronics Zone
and the Digital Signage Zone.
