PARAMUS, N.J., April 4, 2003 – For today’s graphic arts designers, a working knowledge of printing and the printing process is a must. With Designer’s Printing Companion, published this month by the National Association for Printing Leadership (www.napl.org), they can now have easy access to that knowledge in a single source.
In the 176-page volume, author and printing industry expert Heidi Tolliver-Nigro focuses on the practical application of knowledge that is so helpful to designers in the marketplace. Designer’s Printing Companion provides clear explanations of the various printing processes, including lithography, flexography, gravure, screen printing, letterpress, and digital printing, and the issues involved in each. Computer-to-plate systems, press technology, image carriers, substrates and inks, design issues, economic considerations—it’s all covered in a straightforward, easy-to-understand format.
Along with the first volume in the Designer’s Companion series, Designer’s Prepress Companion, the newly released Designer’s Printing Companion promises to be the desk reference of choice for designers, students and anyone who wants to learn about printing.
Designer’s Printing Companion (NP353) is priced at $24.95 for NAPL members ($29.95, non-members). To order, call (800) 642-6275, Option 3; email [email protected]
