CHESTNUT HILL, MA -- Build your core knowledge of print buying basics at a full-day Print Buyer Boot Camp for people new to purchasing – and selling – print.

The trio – all experts in the latest printing and print buying trends – will look at what's hot and what's not in the business today. Detailed presentations will examine timely subjects such as ways to save money; what you need to know about paper, ink and coatings; printing process overview; how to spec, buy and proof; press check do's and don'ts; and the future of print in the face of new media's growth.
