Symposium promotes the use of gravure in commercial printing

The Printed Electronics, Functional Printing and Intelligent Packaging Symposium is taking place at Clemson University for two days this June. It is presented by the Gravure Association of the Americas.

The theme of the event is about making a successful transition from design to commercialization. Topics of discussion will include a history of gravure, the best design tools to use, paying attention to intellectual property, packaging, and the types of inks and coatings that work best.

In addition, there will be a panel discussion in which attendees can ask the speakers questions, as well as breakfasts, lunches, networking breaks, and a final reception. There will also be a tour of the Sonoco Institute Printed Electronics Pressroom Tour.

The symposium will no doubt attract those who work for packaging, marketing, and printing companies – particularly those who want to keep up with the latest industry technology. It will also be an excellent networking opportunity, and there should be many chances to talk with like-minded professionals and exchange business cards.

Gravure is an intaglio printing process that is used in the manufacturing of a variety of printed products, including catalogs, magazine supplements, gift wrapping, and floor coverings.

The symposium will take place at Clemson University from June 23rd to 24th. Fees are $695 for Gravure Association of the Americas members or $895 for non-members. The James F. Martin Inn, near the campus, is offering attendees a special rate on accommodation. To find out more about both, call 201-523-6042.
