In another of our free online PRINTING United Expo Preview days, we focus once again on the in-plant industry by talking with two in-plant managers about the logistics of adding wide-format printing equipment, and discussing substrate shortages and future availability with two experts. (These sessions and many others will continue to be available for viewing after their launch date.)
In the first session, IPI Editor Bob Neubauer talks with two higher-ed in-plant managers – Donna Horbelt, of the University of California-Davis, and Wesley Grigg, from Elon University – about how they cost justified their wide-format equipment, how they decided between latex and UV technology, and which wide-format applications have been the most successful.
The second session focuses on the current state of paper and media availability in the face of paper chain supply disruptions. Jeff Pfister, of Veritiv Corp., and Ross Burnham of MacTac discuss the trends, the reasons for the shortages, and the outlook for the months ahead.
These educational videos are part of a broader Expo Preview educational series covering topics like commercial printing, mailing, fulfillment, wide-format, apparel, promo products, and more. The Expo Preview gives the industry an advanced look at what to expect at the live PRINTING United Expo in Orlando, Oct. 6-8. Expo Preview sessions feature case studies, strategies, facts, and new approaches designed to meet the needs of today’s businesses.
