I ran across this REV photo I took at the Berck Kite Festival in 2006.
The design on the sail is not sewn. It is a polyester material, like Icarex, which goes through a special process of dyeing or something like that. This process was done by two brothers in Valencia, Spain for Team FLIC.

Enjoy,
John

They use a special machine that costs about 70,000 Euros, roughly $90,000.
Their web site is at www.esste.com. It lists their contact email address.
Their names are: Esteban and Pedro Gonzales
They say they can create any design you want on a piece of polyester. I am sure it would not be cheap.
Pedro's English is superb. Esteban's English is passable.

sweet pic man

If you take a look at my private web site, you would see hundreds of kite photos, mainly from Europe.
There are also many interesting REV photos.
www.johnnmitchell.com
I will be adding in the Berck, France Kite Festival 2006 this week and maybe the Cervia, Italy Kite Festival 2006.
The year 2005 is complete. For 2007 I have the San Diego New Years kite festival and KP5 completed.
For 2004 and earlier, I will get around to them someday as time permits.

Some of my photos from the 10 day Berck International Kite Festival 2006 - France are now on-line directly at:
http://home.arcor.de...2006/index.html
or indirectly through www.johnnmitchell.com
There are lots of REV team photos including monkey flying with Flying Squad and Flic.

Yeah, Pedro and Esteban do a fantastic job with that printing too! The "Flying Squad" in the UK has some 1 line kites printed this way with their logo on and they are great.

Nice guys too.

Thanks,

Mark.
