This informational program is tailored toward print service providers to leverage digital production technologies for a more efficient workflow. Attendees will hear from a panel of experienced print service providers who have made the digital transition and as a result are experiencing growth and profitability far in excess of industry norms.
• Dennis DenBoer, owner of Advanced Direct Marketing in Loveland CO, founded the company in 1988 as a mailing service. Finding increased demand for integrated print/mail programs, DenBoer acquired printing capabilities to eliminate the need to outsource. With a blend of a Xerox DocuColor 6060 and a DirectPress 5334 DI, DenBoer produces and mails over 7 million pieces of mail annually.
• Tim Simpson acquired Quick Print, Inc. of Saline MI in 2001. He quickly migrated his two-color conventional printing operation to a digital model with the acquisition of CTP and a DirectPress 5334 DI, as well as the implementation of an Internet storefront, transitioning from a local quick printer to a national provider of printing service.
“These panelists will speak from first-hand experience about the role digital technologies play in ensuring business growth,” stated Randy Davidson, President of OnDemandJournal.com. “We are pleased that Presstek has chosen to sponsor this important educational session.”
"Most, if not all, larger printers have already migrated to digital workflows," says Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor of WhatTheyThink.com and host of the webinar. "But there is still a significant need among small to mid-sized firms to more profitably handle increases in digital content, enhancing their service portfolios. These two companies are terrific examples of what happens when smaller firms introduce digital content into their businesses."
Participants will be able to view and listen to the presentation using a standard Internet browser with audio streamed via computer. The webinar will also be available for replay following the session.
