I've been meaning to get in there all week but I keep getting called out to breakdowns. I'm determined to get in tomorrow so I'll post up if I do.

I really enjoyed it but, to be honest, it's all a bit overwhelming!! I've not been to a big show since sign uk 2006, I was impressed by someof the printers then but now... wow!

if you're into sublimation, transfers, DTG or DTT then you're in for a treat... half of the entire excel is given over to textiles!

was good to meet everyone today, I might pop back on Saturday morning. If you can go - go, If you can't go - GO!

Me too Neil,
I could've easily spend £30k (practically) on printers, presses, etc.

watching some of those UV beasts churning out 8x4's at the rate of four a minute just makes one feel very mickey mouse! I did think some of the specialised uv printers were invented purely for the sake of a whim.. 20x phone cases at a time is fine but at £23k + vat, that's a huge investment for something that's gonna sell for a couple of quid at best on ebay!

Show was massive and if I never see another printer again I'll be happy.

It was great to meet up with your virtual buddies and nice to meet Gary, Kevin, Neil Warren and Daniel who I have not met before.

Enjoyed having a few beers at the end of the show at the UKSB truck with Rob, Kevin and John.

below:

Daniel Evans, Neil Davey and his son, Chris Windebank, Warren Beard, Kevin Flowers, John Harding with Scott, Me and Gary Birch... what a gorgeous lot we are :( :o

We had a good show too.

Was also great to meet you guys. Unfortunately, every time I went to touch base with Rob he was busy so apologies but will catch him another time.

Cheers guys

Sorry I missed you guys
I was there on Wednesday with my dear wife and met briefly with Rob
Didn't see anybody else
The place was massive.... I mean massive!

The wife made an interesting observation
Although FESPA was huge and had lots more stuff she preferred the Sign Show at the NEC. I think I had to agree with her

Even some of the big suppliers normally at the NEC seemed to be shoved into the little stands at the side allowing more room for the big players
