Sawdust - hows you?

I know that one of the distributors were looking at introducing these but it is something I am still waiting to hear about. I have to be honest, I am going to P&P on MOnday and it is one of the things I will be looking for and to see if someone has introduced it yet.

Hope business is good and you are still trying to take over the world!! 8-)

Hi Alan,

I found some printing info on the phototex web site what will be useful.

http://issuu.com/seasonsbounty/docs/pho ... 8590078329

I have used the stuff and it's fantastic. Not ordered any yet, but have sent samples out to guage the interest and if positive will get some soon.

Re - printed balloons. I tried to contact the people Adam mentioned on here, but they never got back to me. I am still very interested in the concept so if something does turn up at P&P let me know. I can't get there this year due to other commitments (duty calls). Not even sure about Sign & Digital yet!! Things ar ethat up in the air that I just don't know when they are going to fall at the moment.

ATB...

Mal

P.S. thanks for the file.... Just the job!!

Sawdust - I will keep an eye out for you at Printwear & Promotion. I will spot you before you spot me (anther challenge!) :lol:

Mal, I will keep my eyes peeled for you and if I see anything re balloons I will grab the information for you and feed it back afterwards. You too must be taking over the world too if your that busy! What ever your doing, keep well and I will speak to you after the show.

Hi Adam,

I'm not taking over the world this year...... Just moving...... Seem to have out grown my work room so am looking for a new house with an attached double garage (ideally with an office above) so we can have our house back.

Regards...

Hi Alan,

Things are going good thanks. Yep, new house... there is a big list of "must haves" for it though so it may take some time....

Did you see the new embroidery machines offered by Hobkirks of Blackburn? I get my machines via them and they are good to deal with.

As for S&D, if i can get there it will be on the Thursday, so I do get there i will give you a ring and meet.

It was very interesting to see that several stalls yesterday at Sign Uk playing with un-inflated foil balloons. Clearly someone has seen that there is a market for such a product and I for one hope that they can make it work. I think it will have to be done on a UV printer (which I don't have) but at least I would be able to offer those of you with the capability some extra work.

Regards...
