Digital Printing-Wide Format - Hybrid
During ACUP 2019, Elizabeth Bowden of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, spoke about her in-plant's experiences with its flatbed wide-format printer, detailing some of the key areas to pay attention to, such as need, budget, integration and upkeep.
This webinar will examine some of the best practices you can implement while preparing to onboard this new inkjet technology.
Offset volume has been slowly declining at Carleton University’s in-plant. Printing campus signage seemed the perfect solution.
Adding a hybrid flatbed printer to his in-plant, says Joe Morin, has "allowed us to expand well beyond our past capabilities to substrates such as acrylics, metals and wood.” The shop now prints signage for district schools, which is becoming a big business.
