Our journey with Midjourney
We have been using Midjourney for about a month now and want to tell you what it is (in case you don't know), why we're using it, and how we think it will impact our industry.
This episode features our coverage of the SEMA Show in Las Vegas. While SEMA is a car show, a lot of high profile print vendors attend because vehicle wraps are a big product in print and it is much larger than the average print show. Because of this, we have had a lot of success at SEMA in the past and had a blast this year!

Licensing Show in Vegas
Last week, Jim attended a licensing show in Las Vegas that had a lot to do with branding and, you guessed it, licensing for quite a few big name companies. This is not directly related to print, but for consistent branding good printing is a major piece of the puzzle. That is why Jim chose to attend this show and shares a little bit of what he learned there.
