AICC Offers Flexo Best Practices Seminar

FTA Announces INFOFLEX 2019 Theme

AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, is hosting Best Practices for Flexographic Printing: Raising the Standard , May 22-23 at the PrintCon Cen- ter at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. This course is said to take the challenges out of high- quality flexographic printing on corrugated substrates and combines classroom training with time on press. Over two days, participants will focus on producing clean solids and line work as well as halftones and spot colors. The seminar will address many typical troubleshooting issues, including dot gain, die-cutting, and proper graphic design for corrugated. Participants will take these processes back to their home plants by creating Standard Operation Procedures. One Point Lessons and checklists will reportedly codify the best practices and help partic- ipants learn the concepts more deeply, gain experi- ence building standard works, and return to their plants with tangible plans to put what they learned into action. Kern Cox, a lecturer at Clemson University and Dr. Scott Ellis, Ed.D, Principal, Working Well LLC, will teach the course.
