Within a few months it was receiving hits from around the world, and the name was changed to be more descriptive of its readership and goals. We were the first online screenprinting magazine, the first to broadcast audio information for the screenprinting community, and with the advent of the Internet in 1993 the first Internet Radio Station - Screenprinters Radio or SPIN, as it was known. As the technology changed, we adapted continually and today have combined all of our publishing services into Solutions Journal and our sister site - Screenprint Group at http://screenprintgroup.com online.
