Cal Poly Provides Commercial Print Training to The UPS Store Network
“This program is by far the most intensive we’ve done in the decades we’ve been conducting training for the industry,” Levenson said.
GrCI Manager Lyndee Sing said, “The graphic arts industry is changing, and many more of today's customers are looking for companies that can provide short-run color and on-demand printing. I have no doubt that with the training received at Cal Poly, The UPS Store is now better able to understand the expectations of their customers and how to meet them.”
