We're back from another great IFAI Expo!

by MMI Textiles 19. October 2017 15:31

 

This year for the IFAI Expo we headed down to the vibrant, lively city of New Orleans for a great week with our industry family. We kicked off our biggest show of the year with a bang as always!

We brought with us some new marketing materials, updated banner stands, new fabric samples, and some finished medical products showcasing how our wide and narrow fabrics can be used in medical applications.

Some of the products we showcased in our booth this year:  

Printed Narrow Fabrics:

Of course, we brought samples of our Multicam ® printed narrow fabrics - showing all the colors that are now available: Multicam ® Black, Multcam ® Tropic, Multicam ® Arid, Multicam ® Alpine, and Multicam ® Classic. This line highlights our commitment to the military industry as it features the MMI-created patent-patent pending CTEdge™.

We can also print patterns, logos, and more on narrow fabrics of practically any kind - we had some awesome samples in our booth to prove it.

 

Performance Knits:

We brought samples and flyers of our performance knits that we currently offer in 17 different styles (ranging in phases and weights).This line focuses on 3 things: Protection, Comfort, and Durability. One fabric has also been approved by the United States Air Force for their FR T-Shirts!

 

PVC Patches, Labels, Cuff Tabs, and Zipper Pulls:

We also had samples of some of the products we can now offer through our partnership with Flexsystems. This line of custom products includes Berry Compliant VELCRO® backed military patches, VELCRO® cuff tabs, 2D PVC patches and labels, morale patches, zipper pulls, flame resistant parts, and more! The options available are numerous and can be customized to meet many sizes, shapes, logos, and colors.

 

Fabric (of course)

What? Fabric? Us? Well, we highlighted a few of our favorite this year (including our upcoming 500D solution-dyed Wolf Grey), but we have so many options! We’ll save you from reading the entire list but whether it is 200D polyester, 10 oz. Single Fill Duck, 1050D Ballistic Nylon, or a custom ripstop to foam lamination – we have you covered. Our line up of woven fabrics coupled with our ability to also provide webbing, hook and loop, labels, zipper, knits, elastic, cord, and tape makes us a cut above the rest.

 

As we get ready to welcome in the holiday season and closeout 2017, IFAI Expo is always one of our favorite times. And if we missed you at our booth this year, don’t worry - we would love to chat and find out how we can help you! Just fill out our contact form or call us at 440-899-8050

 

The 2 Different Kinds of Labels and Why You Need to Know the Difference

by Annie 18. November 2015 09:56

Labels are like snowflakes and sadly, in Cleveland we know too much about snowflakes. But back to the point, we don’t think that any two labels are the alike. They come in so many colors, different materials, shapes, and sizes that it can be hard to pick out the kind you want and need. Let’s break down the options to help make this process simpler.

Printed

We can get you printed labels that are both domestic and imported. We have stock on standard size, Made in the USA, and care labels for immediate delivery. 

Custom labels can be produced in 3 to 4 weeks and we can even create a stock program for your custom labels which helps with any problems that you may have with getting them as soon as possible!

We can also print on ribbons, elastics, webbing, and on virtually any material – natural or man made such as cotton, poly-cotton, vinyl, webbing, canvas, and more!

And because we love to stay attuned to what our customers want we are now offering labels printed on organic cotton!

Woven

MMI imports its woven labels from South America and our factory has one of the most prestigious plants and operates on state-of-the-art equipment to weave labels from the best fabrics. We do have minimums and the lead time for these is usually 2 to 3 weeks. Some of our special effects include:

  • Embossing
  • Laser cutting
  • 3D
  • Reflective
  • Pressure Sensitive (sticky backed)

Note that there are minimums and details that go along with this but if you are interested, we would love to fill you in on the details and figure out how to make it work for you.

The process usually includes sending an art file with graphics and dimensions and we will figure out what the label will be put on and any other special requirements so that we can get you exactly what you need!

As always if you need labels of any kind or you have any questions, give our team a call at 440.899.8050! 

 

The Countdown to IFAI is On!

We are prepping and getting ready for the annual IFAI Expo, here at MMI! As proud members of the IFAI, we really look forward to this show all year long. We get to see many companies, customers, and friends from across the country and the globe. This year, our team gets to travel to Anaheim, California for the annual expo. The three day show is always a whirlwind, and our experience at IFAI in the past has always been a great one.  

 

Packing and preparing for our booth is always like trying to fit pieces of a puzzle together. We want to make sure that everyone gets to see the innovative things that MMI offers. Samples, tables, and lights are just the beginning of it. We love to make our booth the best it can be so that we can welcome anyone into it, and help out with anyone’s fabric needs. We are looking forward to showing off our new products like Unequal® Military, our most popular products like PenCott®, and of course our staples of military and commercial stock.

 

If you are going to be at this show, we would love to see you! Our booth number A242. If you want to schedule a meeting with us, we would love to talk to get the opportunity to talk to you. Email us at info@mmitextiles.com or call 440.899.8050 to set up a meeting!
