A special feature of the event will be the Declaration of Education Program, featuring Books for Kids. The program is an in-line system developed by some of the leaders in the printing industry that will demonstrate how to transform rolls of paper into commercial quality books in one pass. Weyerhaeuser (paper), Oce (print engine), Lasermax Roll Systems (cutting/stacking), MBO (folding), and Muller Martini (perfect bindery and trimming) will create thousands of soft cover books on-site, which will be donated to students of the Philadelphia Public School District.
