Press release from the issuing company
NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2003 - Tomorrow, Xerox Corporation will demonstrate the advantages of digital color printing - high quality images, short runs and personalization - to the printing and graphic arts community at the third annual Graphic Communications Day at Madison Square Garden.
The expo-seminar is hosted by the Association for Graphic Communications (AGC), and attracts printers, creative professionals and print buyers from the New York/New Jersey metro area.
A major focus of the event is the "Design Island," where Xerox will showcase the Xerox DocuColor 6060 Digital Color Press, and how it can produce high-value, customized applications that help generate revenue for customers. At the show Xerox will be producing a poster to display high image quality and a personalized golf newsletter to demonstrate variable information.
"This event provides an excellent forum for Xerox to not only demonstrate our commitment to graphic arts, but how digital printing can provide printers and creative professionals with more value to their customers," said Tom Wetjen, vice president, Xerox Worldwide Graphic Arts Industry Business. "With digital technology graphic arts service providers can be more responsive to their market place, more competitive in their offerings, and deliver more up-to-date and personalized communications with their customers, while greatly reducing costs."
