PIA/GATFPress Releases Revised Glossary of Graphic Communications

Monday, September 15, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Pittsburgh, PA, September 12, 2008 - PIA/GATF is pleased to announce the release of its newest title, Glossary of Graphic Communications, Fourth Edition - a compendium of the terms and concepts intrinsic to the industry.

In order to effectively communicate with coworkers and customers, industry terminology must be fully understood.  In addition, as the scope of printing is continuously and rapidly evolving, it is important to keep up to date with the latest terms and definitions. This newly revised fourth edition provides the terminology that all successful printing and graphic arts professionals need to know.
The Glossary includes 3,500 more terms than its previous iteration and adds to it the latest vocabulary pertinent to the industry. In addition to traditional prepress, press, and production terminology, this comprehensive guide contains expanded vocabulary in the following areas:

- Environment, health, and safety
- Internet technology
- Lean manufacturing
- Mailing and information technology
- Variable-data and digital printing
- Web-to-print

"Graphic communications is an industry that is as exciting as it is diverse, and the landscape is constantly changing. The Glossary of Graphic Communications, Fourth Edition can help you keep pace and better communicate with everyone in the field - from sales and marketing, to copyediting and design, to prepress, to production, to the bindery, shipping, and warehouse," explains Joe Deemer, editor for PIA/GATFPress and reviser of this edition.

Glossary of Graphic Communications, Fourth Edition (Item No. 13054, ISBN 978-0-88362-590-3) is available to PIA/GATF members for $55 and to nonmembers for $75. This and all of PIA/GATFPress's nearly 200 publications are available online at www.gain.net or by phone (1-412-741-6860 or toll-free 1-866-855-4283), fax (1-301-393-2555), or mail (PIA/GATF Orders, 200 Deer Run Road, Sewickley, PA 15143).
