SMOOTH SAILING: Stock car racing is not the only sport that’s partnering with the graphic arts community on sponsorship opportunities. US Sailing, the sport’s national governing body, has signed a multiyear contract with Salt Lake City-based AlphaGraphics to be the first title sponsor for the U.S. Sailing Team. As a result, it will now be known as US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics.
The team annually recognizes the top three athletes in the classes selected for the next Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The agreement, which runs through 2012, includes direct financial support for the team, along with visual communications and marketing support for individual team members from AlphaGraphics locations.
INK HITS SPOT: Digital solutions provider Kornit Digital has received approval for digital printing on baby clothes.
Israel-based Kornit secured the go-ahead from Oeko-Tex, the International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile Ecology (that gives CIP4 a run for its acronymic money). Kornit’s team of chemists conducted intensive R&D of high-end pigmented inks and chemical formulations for the garment applications. The result is a baby-friendly V 201 white ink.
The company’s digitally printed cotton and polyester fabrics meet the human-ecological requirements for baby articles. And, they also help satisfy the growing market for babies’ printed apparels. Now you can get those bibs with “spit happens” printed on them out to customers quicker than your competitors can.
