Surtex Image Licensing Show Over for Another Year

This was our third time that we had our own stand at Surtex. It is a show for licensing images for printing onto surfaces and textiles.

Since it was in Manhattan in New York and is very specifically for image licensing there was no need for picture frames and stand furniture like print browsers. Jan did the show on her own to save on costs and most of the prints on display were unmounted to save on weight and bulk such that everything would fit in a large suitcase and still meet airline weight limits. We didn't ship anything over before the show.

We had a mixture of International Graphics Walmsley GmbH posters (4 big ones at 1 metre x 0.5 metres, all of New York), 5 hand prints (printed by me, of course) and over 30 Silver Prints (printed by Ilford Lab Direct from scans of my negatives). The Silver Prints were mostly 30 x 24 cm but 2 of them were 70 x 70 cm for a bit of impact (one of Chicago in winter and a snowy scene from Colorado).

The picture here gives you an idea of what was on display.

Lots of interest for greetings cards, calendars and stationery products, as well as for wall art which is pretty much already tied up with our deal with IGW. Now the real work starts, chasing up lots of leads.
