WhatTheyThink webinar, sponsored by Fujifilm, to discuss how wide format services can boost business, lock in customers
Lexington, Kentucky USA -- WhatTheyThink today reported that about 200 industry professionals registered to attend a free printing industry educational webinar. Widening Horizons: How Wide Format Services Can Boost Business, Lock in Customers. The session was led by WhatTheyThink Senior Editor Cary Sherburne and held May 18th, 2011.
No-charge access to the webinar archive is available here.
“This session pointed out both the benefits and pitfalls involved when commercial printers add wide format printing to the mix,” said Sherburne. “Our speakers shared frank insight into what is required to add wide format, allowing listeners to better understand the benefits and take away ideas for avoiding the pitfalls. One company was brand-new to wide format, while the other had been outsourcing and decided to bring services in-house. I highly recommend that anyone considering adding wide format services – or looking for more uses for an existing wide format device being used for proofing – listen to the archive of this session.”
Sherburne was joined by:
- Benny Bowman of Worth Higgins & Associates, Richmond VA
- Dean Gille of Badger Graphic Systems, Sun Prairie WI
“As the wide format market has matured,” said Randy Davidson, President, WhatTheyThink, “equipment has become more automated and easier to use. In addition, there are many color management solutions available to ensure that wide format and offset printed products deliver consistent color across both production technologies. We are pleased the Fujifilm is sponsoring this event, allowing us to offer this important educational session to attendees at no cost.”
