Augmented reality (AR) has been popping up everywhere recently - from apps and in-store displays to TV shows and magazine ads. This new technology may seem a bit confusing at first, but you’ve probably seen or used some form of AR without even realizing it. For example, Snapchat, a multimedia messaging app, has ‘filters’ which are a form of AR that overlay digital designs onto the user or real-world surroundings. The Pokemon Go gaming app uses AR to project Pokemon characters into the environment around users with the objective to find and ‘capture’ them on their phone. When the Weather Channel shows digital overlays of extreme weather events, like flooding and hurricanes, they’re using a form of AR as well.

See what it means to be lean and how the FloridaMakes network helped SunDance employees get in the lean mindset with a popular children’s toy.

Interior design has shifted over the last several years from a purely aesthetic standpoint to one that focuses more on the occupant’s experience, giving rise to an exciting new trend - experiential interior design. It’s not solely about how a space can look better, but how it can also be better for the people that occupy it. Similar to related concepts like biophilic interior design which emphasize a more human-centric perspective to improve the wellbeing of occupants, experiential interior design focuses on how the person interacts with a space through different senses to create an experience.
JohnHenry Ruggieri, President, Reveals The Benefits of a “Yes” Mindset in LeadingPRINT Magazine. While there are lots of factors that have contributed to SunDance’s impressive steady growth over the years - like investments in equipment, technology, marketing efforts, and efficiency - it all boils down to this simple but powerful mantra: “Find a way to say ‘yes’.” In the Summer 2019 issue of LeadingPRINT magazine, President JohnHenry Ruggieri explains our company’s ethos and how it has driven our growth and customer satisfaction. It’s not enough to say “yes” though, you have to get creative, take risks, and get the job done to make customers happy.

Anytime you can get a reader to take the time to interact with your marketing piece, it’s a big win. Everyone enjoys feeling engaged and entertained—and printed materials can elicit emotions that are hard to convey in digital formats. A smart, well-thought-out print ad can add value and credibility to your brand in ways that are nearly impossible through other mediums.
Everyone loves to be recognized for their hard work. At SunDance, we are no different! That’s why we are so proud of the 3 Gold Leaf Awards we received this year at the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) Awards Ceremony.
