(July 22nd, 2008) Seventy eight member companies, vendors and staff from across North America attended the CPrint, Certified Printers International World Conference in Kennesaw, Georgia. The conference brought together affiliates for four days of training and strategizing on print industry related topics with the aim of helping owners of independent print companies prosper.
The conference included sales training from top specialist Dave Fellman, training in the lucrative area of variable data printing and marketing, education in going green in the printing industry and an insider's insight into selling to marketing VP's, to name but a few topics.
"Our World Conference is all about getting our printers ahead in a competitive market," commented Tom Crouser, president, CPrint, Certified Printers International, "This is an opportunity to network with peers and vendors, industry specialists and to get education and training not readily available to competitors. Kennesaw was a great fit for us. The convention facilities were top-notch and we were made to feel warmly welcomed," he added.

The CPrint designation is available only to printers who demonstrate exceptional quality and service by maintaining standards in operations, training, equipment and software as well as worker benefits and working conditions.
