LPIA Names New Officers, Inducts Frantz into Hall of Fame and Details Technical Institute Program
Frantz currently serves on the LPIA Board of Directors.
The LPIA Hall of Fame is conferred to that label or packaging executive (printer or supplier) who has reached an unsurpassed level of excellence and achievement in the industry—a leader who has gone far beyond the standard obligations to become a dominant force in shaping the business of label printing. Sponsored by LPIA, this award is dedicated to the spirit of those industry pioneers whose hard work and determination have created a vibrant, growing, and changing industry.
LPIA also announced the dates for its third annual Technical Institute. The program will take place February 22–24, 2009, at the Printing Industries of America in Pittsburgh.
The program is designed with your entire technical team in mind. Developed by the members for the members, this dynamic program offers real-time tactical insight and direction featuring technical experts who will share their knowledge and impart practical, real-world applications, best practices, and solid solutions.
Delve in-depth into issues such as sustainable packaging perspectives from packaging managers; what’s new in the world of substrates; foam labeling and packaging—applying new ideas to an old concept; the latest developments and applications within the industry, as well as an update on the progress of PLA and other biopolymer based initiatives on labeling and packaging and strategies; inks and coatings; impact of the label on recycling PET containers; digital printing; managing color in the pressroom; freight logistics; Lean/continuous improvement; and the environmental impacts of packaging and labels.
The LPIA Technical Institute was borne from the recognition that label and packaging printers need the latest cutting-edge technical expertise to match their customer and market demand. Mark your calendar and commit now to attend the 2009 LPIA Technical Institute, February 22–24, 2009, at the Printing Industries of America in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
