It was a perfect Seattle summer day to head up to Image Mill’s facility in Monroe. The main attraction was a tour of Image Mill’s facility to see all the different capabilities, lead by Scott Minette (President) and Cheryl Huffman (Business Development). Following the tour, the fun continued with food and a cornhole tournament in which several participants came away with awesome prizes!


Cornhole Tourney Winners
First Place Taylor Kneuven // 2hr Electric Boat Rental on SLU
Second Place Jordan Amoth // Seattle Waterfront Giftcard
Third Place Rich Tugade (and Daisy) // Margarita Kit
Last Place Two Lucky Ladies! // Sunscreen


" I had a wonderful time at the recent SEGD provider tour at Image Mill. The food was yummy and plentiful, the beverages were cold and refreshing, and there was even a visit from an ice cream truck. Even though I was already familiar with Image Mill, it was great to see their shop and all the different capabilities they had which I was not aware of. Seeing the dye-sublimation printing process in action was a bonus. It was also great to connect with other industry professionals in my area and share our common trials and tribulations regarding the world of EGD. The Cornhole content was fun and a lot of us came away with some amazing prizes, including me (margartia kit). Special thanks to Cheryl Huffman for accommodating my fur-child, Daisy!"
