FLEXO Magazine : January 2010
5 "I have attended about 10 of these shows and they keep getting better! " --- Mick Karchinski, MECA & Technology Machine, Inc. MONDAY, MAY 3 8:00AM -- 10:00AM FIRST From the Front Lines The front lines can be messy, dangerous and chaotic places. Much like the flexographic printing industry, FIRST has changed significantly over the years to help businesses meet these challenges. FIRST 4.0 features new and detailed information, including improved process control tools, the addition of current terms and definitions, and incorporating current technologies. Even with an improved reader interface, implementing FIRST in any workflow or production environment can still prove challenging. In FIRST From the Front Lines, we will hear from people who have successfully used FIRST to improve their processes-- from brand owners and designers, to printers and prepress providers. This will be an "open book" session, referencing specific FIRST sections that were helpful in each case study. Please make sure and bring your copy of FIRST 4.0 to arm yourself for the best chance to win the war on these flexo front lines.

Discussion will also focus on cost savings, productivity and overall process improvement.

How do they meet the requirements of the brand owners and help communicate the brand to consumers? How do they increase shelf appeal? This collaborative value chain team will provide an exciting perspective of color movement from the emotional conception phase, right through to the printing/finishing applications and the finished package. Driving established color standards from the beginning of design, throughout the process, promotes: creative thinking; utilization of a common language
