34 • March 2019 • S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S DIGITAL PRINTING AND FINISHING DIGITAL GRAPHICS Take vehicle wraps, for instance. Tim Hilcove, general manager of Phoenix- based SmartWrap, an automotive wrap printer, has recently expanded his family's company to provide nation-wide whole- sale services through MySmartWrap. com. In addition to fast and affordable printing services, Hilcove is also looking to share some of his family's vast busi- ness development expertise with smaller graphic shops, helping them to expand their footprint, one step at a time. "My dad and I have 40 years of fran- chising experience, working with compa- nies like KFC and McDonald's, and we started a branding company and then decided to spin off a print company and focus on that," he says. "We really enjoy working with people and sharing that expertise, giving them tips on selling, tracking inventory and growing their business. Some have even grown into much bigger businesses than ours, which is really cool." Orbus's gigantic sewing facility features 30 staff doing intricate and customized finishing projects, including beading and grommeting – tasks that often make outsourcing a job a much better idea.

Acting on behalf of Shephard Expo Systems, Orbus output material for SGIA/Printing United's displays at the 2018 SGIA Expo. Image cour- tesy of Orbus Exhibit and Display Group.
