DigiWrap co-founders Brad Boskovic and Charlie Williams swam with the sharks during the popular “Shark Tank” television series, which aired on ABC last Friday night as part of a holiday-themed episode, and walked away with a deal with the shark some holiday viewers might call Scrooge. After all, Kevin O’Leary, who goes by the moniker “Mr. Wonderful,” didn’t earn that nickname by accident, especially when he often tells contestants “you’re dead to me” when they reject his offers. But the DigiWrap founders, who spun off their customized, digitally-printed tissue wrap and gift bag business from Lingraph Services in 2014, were able to negotiate back and forth with O’Leary before ultimately reaching a deal. They came on the show seeking a $150,000 investment for a 10% stake in their company, but O’Leary originally only offered $150,000 for a 50% stake and —perhaps as a ploy — described it as a “small niche, greasy chicken deal.” Following back-and-forth banter, the two sides eventually struck a deal at 20% equity for the $150,000, plus royalty payments to O’Leary of 5 cents per tissue paper order, and 10 cents per bag order until a cap of $450,000. click Read More below for more of the story
As it prepares to enter its fourth decade in business, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania-based Conlin’s Print is extending its superwide-format graphics printing capabilities with a new, high-end production solution, an EFI™ VUTEk® h3 hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll superwide-format LED inkjet printer from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. The recently installed, 126-inch wide printer bolsters longstanding capabilities at Conlin’s Print as a one-stop print provider with even more options for fast-turnaround, premium-quality graphics.
The company is a full-service commercial print business serving the Philadelphia metro area with a broad range of print, finishing and binding solutions, and was an early adopter of wide-format digital inkjet printing. With its latest investment, Conlin’s Print is meeting demand for different types of high-end graphics production applications.
The new printer replaces an 80-inch wide EFI VUTEk QS2 UV inkjet printer that the company selected to first address growing demand for higher-volume graphics production.
“For years, our wide-format graphics work was in traditional signs and banners,” said Bill Conlin, Sr., the second-generation president of the family-owned business. “The QS2 and now the new h3 printer have brought us into different applications including window, wall and floor graphics.”
