Master Magnetics offers Industry’s Widest “Print Direct to Magnet” One-Step Solution

Testing assures compatibility with major printer manufacturers

Master Magnetics, Inc. features the industry’s widest options for wide-format printing directly on to flexible magnetic material. Available in 42” and 24” widths, PrintMagnetVinyl™ allows for high-resolution printing directly on flexible magnetic material with solvent, eco-solvent and UV printers.

Pole Shift Forces Airport Makeover


From www.msnbc.com…

WFLA’s Brooks Garner reports on the pole shift.

Alan Boyle writes: Don’t think of this as another sign of the apocalypse, but Earth’s magnetic north pole has been shifting enough that Tampa’s airport has to repaint the numbers on its runways.

Tampa International Airport in Florida has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to change the numeric designations at each end, as well as the signage on taxiways leading to the runway. The Tampa Tribune said the runway had been designated 18R/36L, indicating its alignment along the 180-degree approach from the north and the 360-degree approach from the south. Now the numbers are being revised to read 19R/1L (190 degrees and 10 degrees). Two other runways will be closed later this month for a similar signage change, the Tribune reported. Continue reading…
