Digital Printing Is Topic of Upcoming NAPL Webinar
Press release from the issuing company
PARAMUS, N.J., AUG. 31, 2004 – Howard ("Howie") Fenton, NAPL senior digital technologies consultant, will discuss Surviving the Digital Printing Revolution in an NAPL webinar on Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2004, 1:00-2:30 p.m. EDT. Following his in-depth presentation, Fenton will address individual questions from participants.
During the online event, Fenton will explain how printers can expand their offering beyond traditional print by developing more profitable, technology-based services that add value and have more relevance to today’s customers.
"For years, long-run printing had been the backbone of the printing industry, but that segment of our industry is not growing," says Fenton. "To survive and thrive in the future, printing companies need to expand their service offerings. To do that, they need to know how to incorporate new and emerging technologies into a more profitable business model."
