Began Sponsoring the CCCAM Summit
We’ve been sponsoring the CCCAM Summit in Lansing since 2014. The Competitive Cheer Coaches Association of Michigan provides training and education for middle and high school competitive cheer coaches across the state of Michigan. We’re happy to sponsor this event and to print apparel for competitive cheer teams across the state.
Added our first 44″ Large format Dye Sublimation Printer
In September 2014, we added our first large format 44″ dye sublimation printer. This printer allowed us to maximize efficiencies by printing from a 44″ wide roll of sublimation paper. We’ve since added another 44″ and a 64″ sublimation printer.
Moved to Jib St. Location
In February 2013 we moved to a much larger space at 14680 jib St in Plymouth. This 5900 square foot space gave us the room to grow and expand Headfirst Printing. This space also had a deep well loading dock and almost 3,000 square ft of solar panels. With room to grow we were now able to take on large jobs that required warehousing and truck delivery.
First SGIA Expo & New Equipment
In October 2012, we attended our first SGIA expo and purchased one of the first vacuum (or 3D) sublimation systems in North America. Previously only offered at large promotional product manufacturing facilities in Asia, our Sun-Fly vacuum sublimation system was possibly the first systems installed in the Midwest. This system allowed us to create full-color, wraparound plastic prints. We primarily used this technology to create phone cases and cover for advertising, promotional and retail product companies. Please note: As of July 2015 we no longer manufacture or decorate phone cases.
