In-plants Attend D.C. Digital Printing Forum
In another panel, Leslie Rutledge, director of Graphic Services at Brown University, described the digital transformation she oversaw at San Diego State University’s in-plant. She is in the process of making the same changes at Brown.
“What you really need to do is turn your in-plant into an entrepreneurial enterprise,” she noted. Then she shared how she was accomplishing the task.
Michael Munshaw, head of the Library of Congress Print Shop, explained how he had to “sell” the in-plant’s services internally and show the value they provided.
Damian McInerney, Printing Services manager at the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Department of Motor Vehicles, focused on some of the opportunities of running an in-house print operation with both offset and digital equipment. He reviewed his challenges and opportunities within the department, and detailed the actions being taken to run the department more efficiently.
