Debrief: ISS Long Beach 2016
ISS Long Beach 2016 will go down in history as the most attended ISS Show in history. For us at Ryonet and ROQ, it will also go down as the busiest, most fun and interactive show we’ve attended!
The screen printing industry is a buzz of excitement and positive energy right now, and we’re all pretty lucky to be a part of it. As always, ROQ showed up with impressive equipment and some new tricks up their sleeve, showing off the new ROQ Iron in-line, in-press heat press which makes the most amazing under base you have ever seen! We also showcased two water based prints. One amazing simulated process print with foil and discharge, printed on the ROQ Oval. The other, showcasing the new reflective HSA ink, Allure Galaxy, printed on the Riley JR.
The culmination of the show for me was an event that we held at the Federal Bar and Restaurant on Saturday night. We got about 140 screen printers together, and I have to tell you, it was incredible. Everyone from the first ROQ’er in the US (Alex from Twin Cities) to the newest ROQ’er in the US, and everyone in between. Shops from big to small, mom/pop types, hip ones, even Nike was there. If you want to learn to be the best, these printers are THE BEST in the industry. Let me tell you, they are amazing and incredibly helpful. Open to their fellow screen printers here, and around the world.
Long Beach simply #roqed!
