PRESS OPTIMIZATION: STRAIGHT FROM THE MOUTHS OF PRINTERS

April 21
8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
Hyatt Regency Columbus

What does press optimization really mean? How do you balance the need for print component-specific optimization and job-specific optimization, and still deliver the job on time and within budget? The answer, is by striking a balance of optimizing from prepress to the pressroom, and all areas in-between. By doing this, a printer establishes a procedure that yields consistent print quality, workflow stability and efficiency of operations.

“We are all working to build a simple, consistent and efficient process. But when we are working on these improvements, we often overlook the first steps moving forward with the same materials and processes we have always used. We will work to identify and establish the right foundations to ensure we have a stable platform that will achieve our desired goals each and every time, with minimal ‘tinkering’ between runs. As we identify and establish our variables, we set this foundation and give our teams the best chance of success in meeting our customers’ needs and expectations.”
