Colorup Digital Printing Boot Camp Presented by Color Ink

When:  Jun 3, 2019 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM (MX)

Immerse yourself in this 3 day “Deep Dive” inside look into a  truly futuristic modern day printing plant. Within the 105,000 square foot facility based in Sussex, Wisconsin, you'll see a wide range of digital printing technologies being incorporated throughout the plant. Talk directly to managers, production staff and sales staff. 

If you are a decision maker, owner, or operations person within your print organization, this is the perfect opportunity to hear the unvarnished truth regarding digital printing and the challenges/opportunities associated with it.



This event will address...

  • What are the startup costs and obstacles you faced? Who did you train to run the equipment?
  • Does the quality measure up to your customer’s demands? What is your ROI? What are the financing terms?
  • How do your margins compare to conventional print production processes?
  • What are the cultural changes required when embracing digital?  Are there any special infrastructure requirements or hidden costs? How do you estimate digital? How do your salespeople sell it?
  • ...and many more!
