“We created Printers Advantage to provide around-the-clock access to important information that small business printers need – when they need it,” said Mark Wendling, director of marketing communications, Heidelberg USA. “Heidelberg is committed to serving the needs of small businesses, and we are offering this special trip to Graph Expo as a ‘thank you’ to our Printers Advantage members.”

New short tutorial videos also are now available on Printers Advantage, featuring in-house expert Morris Clement demonstrating how the versatile Printmaster QM 46 press can drive greater productivity for small shops.
