“We’ve been learning a lot,” said first-time workshop attendee Corey Byers of Legacy Athletic. “It’s good to see how other professionals do things, and to learn from people with a lot of experience.”
The sold-out workshop took place in SGIA’s lab in Fairfax, VA, where Lon Winters (GraphicElephants.com), Beppe Quaglia (Quaglia Srl/Virus Inks), Jamie McCrae (Latitudes) and SGIA’s Marci Kinter conducted two days of interactive training. Attendees explored water-based ink systems, press setup, proper printing techniques, preferred mesh, sustainability and more.
“We have been using [water-based inks] for eight months now, and we still have a lot to learn,” said Monica Vrankin, another first-time attendee from Legacy Athletic. “This was a good way to reassure what we’re doing, and to complete the education process.”
