6 "I find the entire conference an outstanding value. e speakers are interesting and the networking opportunities are plentiful. "--- Mike Summers, Taylor Made Labels, Inc. between design, prepress and print; enhanced speed and efficiency; and common color spaces. We will begin with a global design firm setting the tone for taking the CPC's message/color directives from qualitative to quantitative, providing a case study that will focus on technology advancements for print tools, screening techniques, ink technologies, print quality/ color management, process control management and color harmonization (color simplification/ Expanded Color Gamut). The message delivered by printing inks with the best-in-class tools utilized by the value chain has been a favorable message for the brand and shows the capability of flexographic printing today.

Today, it is difficult to find manufacturing companies that do not have a Lean or sustainable approach to producing their goods. When it comes to reporting sustainability, there still are no standards: Is it LCA? Is it carbon footprint? Is it having a recycling program? Is it all of the above? Whether you are a printer/converter, a supplier, or a consumer products company, you'll benefit from insightful presentations on in-house tools, FTC requirements, and the benefits of the SGP Partnership. This "take home" session will provide you with some interesting learning that you can apply to your organization immediately. Will we have a standard for sustainability in packaging? Who knows? But, we can learn from the best and adopt programs that enable us to become more efficient and sustainable in the process.
