Many printers, in order to survive in today’s challenging marketplace, are looking to add new revenue streams. One of the most promising is packaging print. But how can commercial printers move into this popular, growing sector? What technology will best expedite the switch in manufacturing – offset or digital? Should growth be through acquisitions or should shops grow organically? Is there a viable niche in packaging that best suits your current workflow, equipment and labour resources? Doing nothing, said the Digital Imaging Association (DIA – Toronto), is not really a viable option.
So the organization has gathered together a unique panel of experts with decades upon decades of experience. Panel members will reveal how they took the risks and made investments to redefine their businesses, and position themselves for success in the long run.
