Open House Offers Cash Grab

CHATSWORTH, CA—Impress Communications recently hosted an open house at its new facility here, which included a drawing to participate in a $50K Cash Grab Money Booth. Winners of the drawing had a chance to “test their skills” and grab as many airborne bills as they could in 15 seconds.

Snatching cash was the perfect way to cap off the open house, which featured a variety of presentations, including: Web 2.0—The Current Era of the Web, Lighting for Digital Photography, Going Green/FSC Certification and Beyond, Single Message Marketing Strategies, and Specialty Printing Techniques. The staff at Impress offered Komori sheetfed press demonstrations that highlighted Impress’ full range of creative services and printing capabilities. Two separate demonstrations were held to show the capabilities of Impress’ newest presses—an eight-color Komori Lithrone S40P and a six-color Komori Lithrone SX29.
