IGI to Conduct Survival Training Course for Printers

Monday, March 30, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Pewaukee, Wisconsin -- The Institute for Graphics and Imaging (IGI)—an education and training organization funded by and dedicated to the printing and graphic arts industry—and BRIDG’S have announced a training course for printers facing operational issues in this tough economic climate.  The three-day course—to be held April 20, 21 and 22, at the IGI facility in suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin—is specifically designed for owners and managers of commercial printers, inplant printers, and pressroom managers or quality control executives of larger shops.  It also is excellent training for newcomers to the printing industry who need a basic technical foundation on which to build.  The course will be conducted by Bruce Lanzarotti, a founder and co-chair of the BRIDG’S Committee and author of the BRIDG’S Quality Compliance Program.  Students also will hear presentations from representatives of ColorMetrix, GRIPdigital, LaCrosse Litho, and X-Rite.
Among the topics to be covered in the course are the sources of pressroom variations, how and why to measure pressroom attributes, benchmarking and press fingerprinting, and print characterization. Course details may be found at http://www.igi.org/events_calendar/default.asp.
Announcing the new training course, IGI Executive Director Ron Dahl commented: “In a difficult economic environment, maintaining quality is a key to retaining business.  While the largest printers have embraced color science as a means of ensuring consistency in the pressroom, many smaller printers have regarded the use of color standards as too involved and complex.  The IGI Printer Survival Course is a basic course in color and pressroom fundamentals taught by an experienced pressroom expert.”
The Institute for Graphics and Imaging provides education and training in the graphic design, printing, and related industries.  Supported by a vast network of industry suppliers, printers, publishers, and governmental agencies, IGI operates on the campus of the Waukesha County Technical College in suburban Milwaukee.  IGI facilities, which include computer classrooms and access to the latest printing equipment, are available for sales events and corporate training courses.  For additional information go to www.igi.org or call 262-695-6260.
