KEYNOTE: Why Having Diversity and Options for All of Your Finishing Needs Post Print is Critical to Success Especially for Production


We will be going thru multiple product examples of different technologies, materials and finishing options for different industries and learning what works and what does not work. When we look to compare ourselves and our industry to the traditional manufacturing sector why it is crucial to set expectations on the front end and not the back end. Learn what the OEM’s sometimes miss and what you need to know to set yourself up for success! Measure twice and print once!
