    The Wrap Shoppe is proud to announce a very talented new addition to our team, Ryan Gatesman. Ryan is one of if not the nations leading expert in the field of color reproduction and color management.

    Past


    Print / Technology Director – Frank O. Carlson Co., Inc.*
    Field Technician (mid-west region) – Scitex Vision USA.*
    Senior Print Tech / Color Manager - Nimlok Chicago*
    Color Specialist / Senior Print Technician – bluemedia*

    Present

    Color Specialist - The Wrap Shoppe
    Independent Tech and Color Management Consultant
    Technical Contractor - bluemedia


    Industry Training / Awards*

    Technical Training – Scitex Grand Format Printing Systems*
    Gamut Profiling / Color Management - ErgoSoft USA*
    G7 Master Printer (bluemedia)
    2003 – Golden Image Award SGIA*
    2009 – Andre Schellenburgh Award SGIA

    I learned a few years ago from a wild cowboy that a company is only as good as it's people and I pride myself in having what I would defend as the most technically sound group of experts in the field of vehicle wrapping.

    Jeni Crawford has won many awards for her design skills, as for Jody and I well just search the forum. By adding Ryan we can most certainly say we can now produce and reproduce the best color in Arizona and possibly beyond.

    Congrats on your new appointment. Happy to hear you are expanding.

    If you are trying to sell something to this crowd I suggest you become a Merchant Member. It's an investment of only a couple hundred dollars and it helps to cover the costs of keeping the site up for all of us.

    Best of luck.

    eh lighten up on the guy. congrats on the new hire. i hope you both do well.

    i DO feel that your "we have the best color in arizona" is a dig on your direct local competition (arizona color), but maybe thats just me. and i would hope that if it is, you could take a different route and establish your own innovation.

    i think no matter what, all of us that are "in the biz" want to see you step up and show your "colors" so that we can see if you really are the leader in the biz that you have professed to be. it can only be good for our industry if you are, and if you are, i not only support it, but welcome it.

    for the record now that others have brought up the two points that jump out at me... the "best" crap is just that... self promoting crap, and ego has it's place, but used only to toot ones own horn looks weak in my opinion.. take pride in focusing on YOUR belief in being the best, NOT in claiming it! Nobody cares if YOU say your the best... we only care if someone else says it... and yes, the merchant suggestion is appropriate (for the future). There may be potential training customers here, but if you want to start generating interest in that, it would be best to be legit

    Sorry, I can't get past the cr@p name...

    The Wrap Shoppe.

    If you've got a crack team of creatives knocking about the place how about a brainstorm for a better, more appropriate name?

    Unless you are selling antique or old school gift wrapping paper the use of the word "shopee" doesn't match with your product- modern digital printing.

    Just a thought like.

    What a disappointing bunch of foul gets.

    You know Sergio, everyone wants a shot at the title whether they deserve it or not.
    Good luck with the new endeavor man!

    I'll bet the next contest will be "The best color contest" the "Pat myself on the back contest". No I got it.... "Who has the least respect contest." Yup! Sergio wins!

    I don't have a clue who Sergio is but he's not the one here being disrespectful.
    I don't see anything in his post that deserves the kind of blasting he's getting.

    Are you guys just a bunch of kids???? GROW UP!

    .. and I don't know who you are either but I am mature enough to give you a level of respect.

    If he says something wrong or offensive.. then respond to that.
    If he's been an @ss in the past. Well tell me who hasn't.

    I just find this like a school yard bully situation. Once one gives the guy a sucker punch all the others get feeling tough and gang up. And justify themselves doing it.

    I'll be first to admit I've been an @$$ many times in my life but I'm just glad I have friends around me who don't feel it necessary to rub my nose in it every time I speak.
