Karlville treated the AWA Shrink Sleeve Conference to a tour of the world class facility of one of our local customers, Safeprints in Miami, Florida. The company got its moment in the spotlight as a world of manufacturers converged for networking and creating business opportunities.

They were treated to hot food, cold drinks, and a wonderful facility tour along with guided explanations of the newest Karlville machinery for shrink sleeve converting and shrink sleeve application, pouch converting and narrow web slitting/inspection equipment.

Excellent networking took place as visitors from Latin America, Asia, Europe, the United States and more came together for a fascinating look inside our industry. Here are some behind the scenes photos from the event.

A short bus ride from the Hilton Miami took passengers to our world class facility in the very central location of Doral, not far from the famous Trump resort that is home to one of the finest golf courses in the nation, the famous Blue Monster at the Trump National Doral.



Passengers enjoyed the networking opportunity

Guests took the opportunity for light networking and enjoying the Miami sunshine.


After the bus ride everybody was ready to see the facility

Upon arrival, the steam and humidity in the air of the city defined the subtropical environment, but left guests smiling at the Miaminess of it all.

Attendees walked a waterfront path into our manufacturing plant excited by the prospect of seeing what new technologies Karlville has up our sleeve.

Our industry allies also had the chance to show off their products as well.

And many guests found their wares to be fascinating and full of possibilities.


Karlville is a great believer in creating a culture where networking is encouraged and accomplished through the promotion of industry events that make us all stronger on the world market.

At Karlville, collaboration is key to our process and the core of our beliefs.

Our friends at Klockner Pentaplast made a big impression on everybody.

And green technology also made its voice heard loudly among attendees.

The environment was friendly and the atmosphere charged with excitement for the future.

Our guest’s eyes lit up with the possibilities on the tables before them and they seemed genuinely thankful to visit with us.


We also had a full chef’s table, and plenty of giant cookies, and cool beverages.

After a short acclimation for our guests, Raul Matos, our VP of Sales and Marketing welcomed everybody and led groups onto the factory floor.


We even had a professional video crew with us to document this great event.

Our wonderful machinery was front and center and attendees had deliberate opportunities to study it closely and ask our experts all about it.


Their questions were focused, intelligent, and proved that our industry is home to some of the most intelligent minds in business today.

The tour was inspiring, motivational, and information-rich, just like Karlville.

It was truly a great opportunity to inspect all aspects of our production.

And many of our guests took carefully detailed notes.

We welcome the titans of industry to carefully inspect our machines, that’s because we are confident in our everything we do.

And our staff are the best in the business, so we treat them like family, and their loyalty is priceless.

In fact our machinery’s live operation was quite a sight to see.

Our loading and unloading processes and procedures were an area of much interest.

And the production process was too. Live production sample runs fascinated all comers, as did our materials, efficiency, cpeed, power, and grace.

Meanwhile our staff were professional, accommodating, and as busy as ever.

It was not a typical workday in terms of company uniforms, but as always we were thankful to share the day with our new friends in the industry.

Take a look at this cool detail shot from our top of the line products.

Karlville President John Price was also on hand to show the world what we are working with, and why it is a boon for our industry.

When John speaks, people listen. He is a natural born leader.

Our guests were simply fascinated by all that they saw.

And we were proud to present them with a unique vantage point from which to do so.

Our Flexographic printing and shrinking is always a showstopper.

And our laser leveled precision is the technical embodiment of everything the company stands for: precision, accuracy, and customer aproval.

Karlville is a company with many layers, all transparent for the ultimate in service and accountability.

With complex systems in place to set the pace of technology, we’re always on the razor’s edge of production.

That’s why everyone pays rapturous attention to everything we do.

And why our name and brand is growing exponentially with each opportunity we take to meet new prospective customers.

And as well know, hard work requires great food, which we were happy to provide.
