Quick PPAI Vegas recap
• One of the booths was giving out free hamburgers? They had a whole grill and eating area set up and everything. Did anyone try them? Yay or nay?
• The most interesting stuff I saw was actually with a couple of the screenprinters and dyehouses I spoke with for the February T-shirt article I'm writing. I've been in the industry for a little while now, but I haven't spent much time studying apparel printing methods. It was cool to learn about stuff like color discharge, different kinds of washes, the chemistry of printing, etc. Check back on promomarketing.com in a month or so to see the story that (hopefully) explains everything I've learned, but possibly will just be another venue for me to flaunt my ignorance. Entertaining either way I suppose.
So that's my Vegas recap in brief. The brief of the brief would be something like, "Good: Education. New: Touch screens. Mysterious: Booth Hamburgers." The briefest would of course be "Things: Existing," which after today's e-mail battles, I'm seriously thinking about phasing into my work communications.
Until next week,
MIKE FACT OF THE WEEK: I am listening to rap music as I write this blog post. The song that's currently on my Pandora station is "Diamonds on the Inside" by Input.
