We knew Tom Frecska in his 20’s and cheered his accomplishments as he made his way up through the ranks at Screen Printing magazine. We were in awe of his writing skills, enjoyed his sense of humor, have been grateful for his kindness and constructive criticism of our feature submissions to the magazine. Like our colleagues, we are devastated by his early death. Tom’s many gifts as a human being, an editor and friend will be remembered and missed by all of us at RhinoTech.

Helping screen printers stay viable!

The pages of our industry’s magazines are shrinking. We noted just 44 in the last issue of Screen Printing magazine. Is our industry really shrinking too? We’ve observed that screen printers are trying to spend wisely regarding on-going supply needs and new equipment purchases. And there’s a question in that too - will purchases be strictly based on price or will brand loyalty preside? We’ve heard both. We urge a conversation if a change in supplies is strictly based on price. In this economy, it’s worth it. Talk to us.
