Posted by Craig Zola on May 13, 2019

ISA_Expo_BantexThe recently completed ISA Sign Expo in Las Vegas had an upbeat vibe with distributors and sign shops positive in their outlooks for the remainder of 2019. Bantex® Digital Media was on hand to share the latest news, including our continually expanding distribution network.

Craig Zola, vice president for marketing and distribution, and Bill Foster, national sales manager for graphics, staffed this year’s Bantex booth which sported a refreshed look and feel with colorful roll-up banners made with Bantex Digital Media. A focus for this year’s show was on communicating the expanding distribution network for Bantex through the Bantex Partners program.

Distributors and sign shop owners visiting the booth continued to reinforce the premier brand position of Bantex Digital Media and how it’s helping our trade partners expand their businesses through exceptional color and image quality.

Manufacturers of digital inkjet printers reported brisk sales of new units, many of which were on display at the show running Bantex Digital Media. Bantex is often the choice for new printer demonstrations because our products were designed specifically for the latest print technology. By using Bantex products, printer manufacturers can best showcase the advanced quality available with today’s printers when using a premier material.

On a sad but warm note, many ISA Sign Expo attendees dropped by the Bantex booth to offer their condolences for the passing of Dan Dix, business manager for product development and innovation for Bantex. Dan was a leader in the industry for more than 30 years, including 15 with Herculite, and is remembered not only for his technical expertise but also for his generous support of distributors and sign shops.
