Digital Printing-Production Inkjet - Cut Sheet
Sponsors of the Inkjet Summit 2013, Canon Solutions America, Finch Paper, Ricoh and Xerox Corp., share their thoughts on the inaugural event that was held in April at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, near Jacksonville, FL.
The potential for digital packaging is great, and while there are many obstacles, these can all be overcome. Commercial printers would also like to get into packaging, but commercial shops have some additional challenges. Commercial printers generally do not have the finishing equipment: folding, scoring, diecutting. Perhaps more significant, brand owners generally look to box makers for boxes, not commercial printers.
Inkjet Summit 2013, hosted by Printing Impressions and nGage Events, will be held April 9-11 at the exclusive Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. The Inkjet Summit is an invitation-only, hosted event designed for senior managers and business executives who want to understand how current and future inkjet technology trends, software, consumables and finishing solutions are and will impact their businesses and help them shape their visions and strategies for the future.
