I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself to those of you who do not know me! I am Damian Gardner and I own HydroDigitalFilms (HDFilms) in Jacksonville FL. I am a retired veteran of the U.S. Air Force and worked for U.S. Defense contractors after I retired. I have been on the K2 Forum since its inception; some of you may know me by Gardnerddd. I have been producing custom film for 5 years now; I also know how to dip. I have attended K2 and OHW training class as well. For those of you who I don't know, I look forward to meeting you!
My guys and I have worked hard to improve Custom Hydrographic Film, while bringing the price point into the $20 - $30 dollar range (with exception of some Designer film). We feel we have been successful in improving custom film, lowering the price point and bringing you a superior quality product. This new film is not rebranded, nor slightly improved, or just more ink stabilizer added! This is our own process that started from the ground up, new research, new equipment and new printing process.
Our film is of equal or superior quality as any other film printer on the market. No, we are not trying to be a value leader. We have been doing this for a while, which has allowed us to structure our cost different and we have turned that savings over to you.
HydroDigitalFilms (HDFilms) offers excellent adhesion to any properly prepared or painted surface. Our ink stability with activator is awesome, compatible with most "Cool" activators. Our inks are UV stable and should last for many, many, years with a good quality 2K clear coat.
DO WE DO CUSTOM DESIGN!
Of course we do! Not only do we do custom design we also can print FRACTAL CAMO designs, plus we have a few designers that we work with. Better yet, if you or your customer have a design in mind, please reach out to us and let's make it come true.
DO WE SELL FILM YOU CAN LEARN ON?
Of course we do! We have a special section with limited designs that will allow you to learn how to use the film without investing heavily; these films are priced in the $15 range. This film is no different from the other popular film designs you can purchase. The reason for this section is there is nothing worse than spending hundreds of dollars to learn how to use custom films. From our stand point it does not benefit you, so we bit the bullet on this to ensure you can learn how to use our film.
PAPER OR PAPER BACK?
At this moment we are only printing on the paper type film, which we do like. Paper is a little easier to handle and maintain. We will however in the next 60 days, introduce paper back, for the guys and gals that prefer that type of film. Even our paper back is very solid; you should not get any ink dispersing in the water or break up if directions are followed.
We are glad to be a sponsor and look forward to providing you custom film needs.

Again we look forward to interacting with you guys and gals, and thanks for the welcome!!
