Johnson Plastics Sublimation Specialists will host two days of sublimation education and networking consisting of an open house and one day of instructor-led training at the designated office.
Thursday 10am-4pm - Open House (Free; No Registration):
With an "open house" atmosphere, please feel free to drop by visit for an hour or two; visit at any point throughout the day. Our location will have a working sublimation system, and we encourage our customers and other interested parties to take advantage. We'll be happy to guide you through a hands-on demonstration where you can make one or two products of your choice. We can also work with you one-on-one whether you need help troubleshooting a problem, decorating a product or figuring out a selling price. At three times during the day, we will present a short, 30-45 minute presentation covering the components that comprise a sublimation system, current printers and equipment available and a short overview of the hundreds of dynamic products you can create with sublimation (presentation repeats 10:30am, 12:30pm and 2:30pm). There is no need to register for Thursday.
Friday 10am-4pm - Dye Sublimation Seminar (Registration Required):
For those new to dye sublimation or those just "kicking the tires," we offer a more formal training program on Friday which allows for a limited number of registered students. Friday's session will provide you with comprehensive overview of the sublimation technology from systems and equipment to graphic needs to marketing and pricing products. Beginning with a hands-on session frist thing in the morning (with more to follow throughout the day as time allows), Friday's instructor-led, all-day training event will focus on exactly what you'll need to get your sublimation business up, running and profiting!

Limited seats Friday require a $20 reservation fee per person +Eventbrite fee. Lunch provided at Friday's seminar. Contact John Barker with any event or seminar questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Johnson Plastics, headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been a supplier to the engraving and sign making industry since 1970. The Johnson family began the business selling plastic and magnetic products used by sign shops to produce vacuum formed signs. The business is built on the belief that personal service and a strong customer focus are as important to the business as the products that are sold.
In 2002 Johnson Plastics entered the sublimation arena. Partnering with Unisub, Sawgrass, Vapor Apparel and several other vendors the company has become a dominant force in sublimation.
Still family owned, to adequately serve its national customer base Johnson Plastics added additional branch offices and warehouses. Concord, California (1975), Carrollton, Texas (1986), Worthington, Ohio (1987) - moved to Columbus, Ohio (1990), Lawrenville, Georgia (1996), Crystal Lake, Illinois (1996), Phoenix, Arizona (2000), Winston-Salem, North Carolina (2004), and Albany, New York (2014).
