The dust has settled, and all of our equipment, literature and miscellaneous other supplies have finally been put away (well, mostly). We’re tired, our voices hoarse from three days of non-stop talking, but above all, we’re grateful.

The Los Angeles NBM Show was wildly successful for us. We got to see several of our existing customers and vendors, and connected with many potential customers. We were excited to show off all of our new equipment, such as the dye sublimation printer and the heat press, as well as having the support of so many of our vendors. We had numerous Manufacturer Representatives in our booth, discussing the latest and greatest tools, equipment, and methodologies to those who visited in our booth. A BIG Thank You to everyone who made the trip out to see us!

If you weren’t able to make it out, you can check out some of our photos from the show a little further down the page. If you did attend and captured any good shots, share them with us on Twitter, Facebook, or post them in the comments!
