On September 12, 2012 D3 will hit the Cleveland area. What is D3, you ask? Some sort of great lakes hurricane? No. A radical expansion of the alphabet to 28 letters? No again. D3 stands for Design, Decorate, Deliver. And those three Ds are exactly what Stahls’ will help you perfect in this how-to, hands-on all-day heat printing event.
D3 will help you increase the profitability of your business through hands-on demonstrations and workshops. You’ll be able to try Hotronix® heat presses yourself, find out about the new Any Word. Any Way.™ ordering system, try screen printed transfers, and much more. We’ll even have new and future products for you to test and offer feedback.
The event’s educational sessions are divided into two tracks: DIY and Transfer Services. So, whether you’re familiar with heat presses, vinyl cutters, and heat transfer material, or just starting out with screen printed transfers, you’ll find informative, helpful topics that will help make your business the best it can be.
Several sessions will be hosted by industry expert and CAD-CUT Direct general manager, Josh Ellsworth. You’re no doubt familiar with Josh from his informative videos, magazine articles, T-Shirt Forums posts, speaking engagements, late night talk show appearances, and four platinum albums. Ok, those last two aren’t true, but you get the idea – Josh is out there spreading the heat printing gospel any way he can.
At D3, Josh will be hosting “CAD-CUT Tip Jar – How to Decorate with CAD-CUT & What’s New.” As the title implies, Josh will show you the latest innovations in CAD-CUT heat transfer materials and how to use them to create great-looking designs. You’ll even be able to apply the materials yourself!
He’ll also be present in the Product Innovation Lab, showing you new and future Stahls’ products and collecting feedback.
Josh will then host two more sessions in the afternoon. “How to Decorate with Digital Transfer & What’s New at Stahls’ CAD-CUT Direct” will focus on CAD-COLOR® print/cut materials and how they can be used to decorate all sorts of items. In “Making Yourself a Logo Expert,” Josh and GroupeSTAHL Chief Marketing Officer Carleen Gray will cover how to add value and profits to your business by creating full color logos and applying them to promotional items.
As you can see, Josh is a busy guy and will be even busier at D3. For more information on the event and to see a full schedule of sessions, visit our D3 page.
