(PAGE 44) * Ghost images are the product of trapped re- sidual ink par- ticles within the knuckles of screen- printing mesh. (PAGE 60) * Based on a survey con- ducted by Printwear, A&E, and SDG, quality of the prod- uct is the most important factor when considering pur- chasing a direct-to-substrate printer, followed by price, ink cost, and maintenance requirements. (PAGE 26 IN THE D2 REPORT) It's the Most ( ly ) Wonderful Time of the Year W e've just about made it through another calendar. And whether you're worse for wear after what's been an arguably rough election year, we can at least say we've made it through 2016. In wrapping up the year, it's easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. Last-minute specialty jobs will in- evitably keep you hustling at work with strange hours, while a busy social calendar is likely to make the rest of your free time just as hectic. It's during these times that conscious moments of self-care and pause can have the most impact. Taking an afternoon at work, as busy as you may be, to reorganize your workstation or catch up on customer follow-ups and thank you's can help both physically and mentally declutter and build better bonds with the people that allow you to do what you love. At home, spending an evening in read- ing, crafting, meditating, or decompressing in any way you wish can help reset your mood and mindset to power through the nal weeks of the year. While the holiday season and countdown to the new year are a joyous time for most, they can also be the most stressful. Slowing down to set yourself up for success at work and taking time to care for your mental health will not only help to keep things in perspective, but they will also set you up for continued success going into 2017. I hope you have a relatively stress-free holiday selling season, and a very Happy New Year! Carly Hollman-Long * While partner- ing is similar to contracting, the arrangement may be less formal and may often involve more of a referral situation, or even a barter arrange- ment. (PAGE 68)
