PIA/GATF Workflow Conference Features a Revolutionary Printer

Friday, March 24, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

Sewickley, Pa., March 23, 2006 -- Building successful graphic arts companies requires innovative thought. One of the leading innovators in the field, VistaPrint, will be highlighted during the 2006 PIA/GATF Workflow Conference, September 17–19, in Detroit. VistaPrint has built a comprehensive operation that makes producing commodity print a profitable business model. With VistaPrint, customers can design online, order, and receive their customized printed products in as little as three business days. Attendees will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how the company employs web-to-print, automated workflows, and new printing technology to produce an average of over 12,000 orders a day. “The system that VistaPrint has developed allows them to produce orders with less than 60 seconds of labor. Their Windsor facility prints, finishes, and ships completed jobs faster then many conventional shops take to estimate one new job,” comments George Ryan, COO at PIA/GATF. “VistaPrint has more than 6 million customers, ships to 120 countries and regularly attracts more than 100,000 new customers per month,” said Robert Keane, president and CEO of VistaPrint, “In order to achieve this massive scale, VistaPrint has standardized, automated, and integrated the entire print supply chain, and we’re looking forward to showing off our state-of-the-art North American plant during the Workflow Conference.” This tour begins two days of sessions dealing with technical and organizational issues surrounding automated workflows. Topics will include web-to-print workflow, proofing technologies, JDF user testimonials, and the integration of digital with offset.
