FLEXO Magazine : April 2009
standard characterization form at the Fall Conference. So far, two printers have ex- pressed interest in producing the runs. Projects/Goals: • Establish a standard characterization test form. • Create a Flexo Design Guide based on FIRST specifi cations to educate design- ers and CPCs about fl exo’s capabilities. Supplier: Craig Shields, Graymills Corp., acts as Council Leader. Based on the re- sults of an industry-wide survey, the group has honed in on two goals: increasing printer/converter members and increasing the amount of industry data (size, growth, health, etc.) available. Projects/Goals: •Working with FTA Membership Committee and Department to for- mulate a “Member-Get-A-Member” incentive campaign. • Considering resurrecting local user group networking events. • Creating a quarterly “Flexo Barometer” to measure the state of the industry. Wide Web: Alongside Council Leader John Paine, C-P Flexible Packaging, the group has devised several objectives. Frequent guest speakers and heavy coop- eration with other Councils and FTA com- mittees has led to notable progress. A re- cent membership drive has sparked great interest and resulted in some new faces. Projects/Goals: •Working collaboratively with the Prepress Leadership Council to create a guide for designers and design stu- dents based on FIRST. • Working on creating a stronger part- nership with CPCs. As a fi rst step, the group has contributed signifi cant input to the Prepress Session at the Forum. • Ongoing discussion has led to the fi rst of several FLEXOarticles on in- the-round technology, with the goal of analyzing and improving its cost eff ectiveness. ¦ SPI LEADERSHIP COUNCIL CONTACTS Greg Collins SPI Chair C-P Flexible Packaging 717-764-1193 firstname.lastname@example.org Jean M.
