Fespa coffee break webinar series

Fespa is launching a new Coffee Break webinar series bringing together industry experts to share knowledge and business advice and answer questions from printers on topics including process control, software, automation, and sustainability.

Hosted online by Fespa Technical Support Manager Graeme Richardson-Locke, the free webinar series begins on 20 October at 11 am BST, with subsequent episodes taking place every two weeks. Each webinar will last approximately 40 minutes, including a Q&A session.

Fespa is a global federation of 37 member associations for the screen printing, digital printing, and textile printing community. Fespa’s dual aim is to promote screen printing and digital imaging and to share knowledge about screen and digital printing with its members across the world, helping them to grow their businesses and learn about the latest developments in their fast growing industries.

In Fespa’s first Coffee Break, Graeme will be joined by Paul Sherfield, owner of the Missing Horse Consultancy and Toby Burnett, emea & americas director at PrintFactory. In this episode, the experts will explore the topic of “Process Control – how to set up effective color workflows to save money”. Areas covered will include how to improve your process controlled workflow; how to enhance customer files, desktop software and print viewing conditions; color management; and the importance of print quality assessment and validation.

Additional confirmed webinars include “Looking ahead and building a more sustainable business: How a sustainability audit of your business will reveal opportunities to save energy, balance your carbon and attract new customers” on 3 November, and “The benefits of software automation” on 17 November.

Graeme Richardson-Locke comments, “In the current climate, specialty printers are looking for ways to improve and automate their print processes, introduce more sustainable approaches, and diversify their offering. It can often be a challenge to find the right advice and solutions, so we’re launching the Fespa coffee break webinars to help print service providers access the insight they need to support their business decisions. The initiative is part of our Profit for Purpose program, which aims to educate and inspire printers by offering meaningful advice and giving them the knowledge they need to succeed.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
