Time to Invest?

Feb 28th, 2018

There are two types of people in this world: Those who hate change and those who welcome it. From a business standpoint, I hope you identify with the latter considering how quickly industry products, technology and trends evolve. As one industry member said to me this past October, “Kat, most dealers these days aren’t just […]

Keeping Up with Time

Jan 3rd, 2018

I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year and a great holiday season! Now that it’s 2018, I’m sure you’re all busy making (or trying to stick to) new resolutions, whether they be for business purposes or for personal reasons—maybe even both. Nevertheless, the welcome of 2018 brings in the opportunity to reflect […]

Food for Thought

Oct 18th, 2017

It’s hard to believe the 2017 International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ (WFCT) concluded almost two weeks ago, and I feel as though I’m still playing catch-up on sleep. To add to the deprivation, I’ll be heading to Vegas shortly for the SEMA Show, and we all know there’s not a lot of sleep happening […]

Tint: Catching Criminals One Stop at a Time

Aug 30th, 2017

Every day, I skim through nearly one hundred stories related to window film in some form or fashion and, more often than not, they’re pretty outrageous. While I don’t always read them, their headlines are too comical not to pass on to my editorial director, Tara Taffera. Sometimes, they’re too inappropriate to share, but I’ve […]

Taking in the Experience 

Jul 19th, 2017

You know that old adage, “Don’t quit your day job”? Well, I’m sure most of the people who also attended Avery Dennison’s Supreme Wrapping Film class last week wanted to give me that little piece of advice, but they were just too kind to tell me so. The class, which was held at Vivid Wraps […]

Going the 419.6-Mile Distance

May 31st, 2017

If you’ve ever had the chance to meet Bill Valway, CEO of Sykesville, Md.-based Absolute Perfection (AP) Window Tinting, you know he’s all about expanding the capabilities and reach of his business. Not only does the company offer window film, PPF and wrap services, but it also offers media services such as web design, video […]

The Catch-22

Nov 30th, 2016

It’s been a few weeks since the President-elect was announced, and media outlets, including social sites, are still being convoluted with “he said, she said,” banter (at least from my own experiences). But, whether your candidate of choice was elected or not, new regulations are headed our way. And I think it’s time to put […]

Until Next Time

Oct 18th, 2016

San Antonio was a great city to host this year’s WFCT—the weather was clear, the Riverwalk was easily accessible; it was a wonderful place to get back in touch with people we don’t get to see but once a year at the conference and Tint-Off™, or even meet new faces—as in my case. Now, it […]
