It is that time of year again where the print world descents on the wonderful city of Chicago. All the latest and greatest equipment is on display along with workshops and seminars discussing everything from industry trends to how to increase sales. If you are new to Graph Expo I would take in as much as you can and learn from the industry experts. The key is to always be learning in this industry, because if you blink you might miss something.
I remember when I would attend Graph Expo with my high school classes and right as you walked in it would be all the largest offset and web printing presses from the Heidelberg to Komori. Over the years things have changed with digital and inkjet printing. No longer do we experience the steel on the floor that was the large offset and web presses. Today we have smaller and quicker machines that don’t need much make ready and can produce hundreds of thousands of 8.5 x 11 documents in a single hour. Funny how things have changed over the years and how the printing industry has adapted to the want and need for personalization. Honestly I think that is what makes the industry one of the best is that it is constantly evolving.
Ok rant over and I’m back to talking about Graph Expo and some of the details to the event.
