T-Shirt Help Desk - Wisdom + Tips
Gary Weaver: Printing Tips for Newcomers!
“Learn as if you were not reaching your goal and as though you were scared of missing it”
"Things are not what they cost. They're what they're worth."
- Gary Ajene
All American’s collaborations with Gary this year began at the very first ISS Impressions Expo of the year in Long Beach this past January. All the big movers and shakers were in attendance so of course it was no surprise to find Gary there amongst the stars. We tapped him on the tradeshow floor to offer insight for a Printing Tips From Printing Pro’s style video with a DIRECT TO FILM twist. You can check out Gary and the rest of the pro tips to the side here.
At our recent CA Open House we had the pleasure of hosting Mr. T Shirt Help Desk himself who delivered, not one, but TWO riveting seminars to our audience of attendees. After reviewing Gary’s extensive library of knowledge and hearing him share this in person with our customer base, we knew we had to have him as a guest on our Creative Corner series. Geared as a Survival Guide for Starters, we asked Mr. Ajene some of the hard hitting questions for newcomers in the garment printing industry. Aside from getting his background in his own words about how he got started, some of my personal favorite moments from the conversation were touching on what to do in the garment printing business with NO graphic design training, as well as discussing some fantastic tips about social media marketing. Also, when DOES someone know how to make call on OUTSOURCING the printing or bringing production in-house?
Gary has also been one of the many people online LOVING their direct to film printer from DTF Station: the 13” desktop Prestige A3+R. We are so happy to see the rate at which DTF is becoming more accessible for everyone, and, with the resources provided by All American Print Supply combined with the real deal information of the legendary T Shirt Help Desk, we see the future as very bright for all those involved.
