Digital printing is a phrase that has been grabbing people’s attention for year. To help the independent converters that have moved to digital, AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, has created a new seminar based on the movement to digital printing taking place in paper packaging and the need for a well thought out plan for meeting customer expectations. 

Learn from knowledgeable developers and users in digital print for corrugated. This course will be held at Sun Automation where training will take place in a classroom with hands-on access to state of the art digital printers.

This course is intended for companies who are starting to get into digital or those who are thinking about it. The course will touch all the concerns and issues with direct digital print on corrugated. Many areas of the course will have hands-on training using a digital printer. The course will be presented in an open format, which will include time for detailed questions and answers on specific topics.
