Are You Making a List?
We are just one month out from PRINTING United – the most expansive, action-packed tradeshow event in the printing industry. Opening its doors in Dallas on October 23, vendors have lined up to showcase the latest solutions in commercial, apparel, wide-format, packaging, functional printing, in-plant printing, and more. If you’ve been following along, we’ve outlined five weeks’ worth of new technology that will be shown at PRINTING United. And there’s still so much more to come.
Here’s this week’s installation of news you can use when walking the show floor at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center:
