Re: Mark Coudray Delivers Hard-Hitting Knowledge That Print Shops Need
We interviewed Mark Coudray. He is one of the screen printing industry's leading thinkers, consultants, and advocates. With nearly 50 years of experience in the apparel decoration business, Mark's career spans a period of robust growth and incessant change. It's not just screen printing that's changed. The entire world has!
The new technologies, processes, garments, business models, and techniques that have emerged during Mark's career could provide fodder for a years' worth of discussion.
But what hasn't changed during that period is equally remarkable.
Print shops still struggle with the same things:
Pricing their work
Accounting for their costs
Managing the printing process
Having a real vision for the business
Hiring great workers
No amount of software and no screen printing press can account for a lack of strategy or a mismanaged approach to building a business. Mark Coudray's insights are easily among the most valuable you'll read: clear thinking, simple advice, and experience add up to serious authority.
