San Francisco

Let's kick-off the holiday season with an evening of festivities kindly hosted at the studios of Martinelli Environmental Graphics. This evening will include networking, a shop tour and a product introduction by Arlon Graphics. Also, we'll be making holiday ornaments so you will get a chance to show off your vinyl weeding and squeegee skills!

Please RSVP early so we can plan for catering and materials.

Hope to see you there!


Join SEGD SF for a 90-minute private guided tour with access to “behind the scenes” areas including premium club lounges, press level, locker rooms, green roof and the Sony 49ers Museum. Following our tour we will mingle at chef Michael Mina’s Bourbon Pub.

Lauren Hart

Lauren Hart is an art director and graphic designer in San Francisco.
