Press release from the issuing company
(Akron, Ohio June 24, 2005) The GIA announced an initiative with Mutoh and SignWarehouse.com to provide training and color management technical support for the Mutoh Toucan LT, Falcon Outdoor, Falcon Outdoor II, and Falcon Outdoor Junior printers, which SignWarehouse.com OEMs under the Prismjet brand. When provided on-site, this GIA training will be tailored around each customer's specific device and RIP. On-site customers also receive 12 months of GIA toll-free technical support for RIP and color management issues. Service and mechanical issues will still continue to be handled by Mutoh.
In addition to customized on-site training, the GIA will offer hands-on Mutoh Falcon Outdoor training workshops at SignWarehouse.com in Denison, Texas. Classes at the 87,000 square foot facility are scheduled for July 19-20, August 23-24 and October 20-21 with registration at 888.439.4403 or online at www.graphintel.com. This training venue will complement Mutoh classes held monthly at GIA's training centers in Cleveland and San Diego.
"SignWarehouse.com has put together an exceptional support solution by utilizing the GIA," said Randy Rickert, Director of Sales for Mutoh America Inc. "Two days of training and 1 year of GIA phone support for RIP and color issues are perfect for this level of Mutoh digital imaging professional."
