Print FUTURE SHOCK: Interactive, Integrated—Even Electric!
Monday, Sept. 14, 4-5:30 p.m.
At this session, Shaffer will teach attendees how print can be just as interactive as any electronic-based media. She will introduce new, entirely available technologies that mash print and digital communications. Topics being discussed include when and where RFID and NFC applications make sense, how interactive and print displays work best together, what resources it takes to get started with interactive media and more. Attendees will have the chance to interact with many examples during the session.
3D for Commercial printers: Your NEXT Print Profit Pathway!
Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2-3:30 p.m.
As the 3D print (also known as additive manufacturing or rapid prototyping) market continues to exceed all expectations in terms of sales and product development, should commercial printers join in on the trend? Shaffer will help attendees make decisions as she discusses the status of the 3D printing/additive manufacturing industry, what’s going on in the consumer market, what it takes to get the operation up and running and much more.
Printing Industries of America will be at booth #3802 with a rotating panel of experts, industry resources and exciting giveaways. For a full schedule of Printing Industries of America seminars at GRAPH EXPO 15, visit printing.org/graphexpo.
