Samples will be shown and discussed, as well as suggestions and caveats to consider in the production environment. 

Thursday, Nov. 5, 2015 at 12 pm noon: Aurora’s Christian Smith will discuss how to Shed the Fear & Join the Fabric Revolution: In this discussion, Smith will review common misconceptions related to printing on textile products.

This presentation looks at these ongoing trends, and reviews the knowledge attendees will need in order to put their company at the forefront of this digital revolution.  Smith is Aurora’s South Central Region Print Media Account Manager.
