Upcoming Events, Solvent Inks, and Streamlined Standards

Recent & Upcoming Print[ED] Events

With the summer over we welcome all of our Print[ED] instructors back into the classroom! Along with that, we want to take a moment to go over our most recent event as well as a couple of upcoming ones.

2022 Print[ED]/GCEA Summer Conference
On July 24 – July 28 we were thrilled to host our first in-person live event since 2019, which was our Print[ED] Summer Conference, partnering with the Graphic Communications Education Association (GCEA) at Appalachian State University. We presented four different sessions, including Digital Finishing Techniques, Print[ED] updates, and a material giveaway. We're already working with GCEA on next year's summer conference, and will have that information available to you as soon as it's available!

The webinar will be held at 2 PM ET on October 5th and is free for all Print[ED] instructors to attend! Can't make it? Make sure to register we'll send you a copy of the recording.

Understanding the differences between the two and their advantages/disadvantages can help you decide which is better to use for a particular job. Click Here to Read the Full Article

Streamlined Print[ED]
Accreditation Standards

As you know, the six Print[ED] standards are what we have identified as what encompasses the elements of a solid training program. For a program to be awarded accreditation, it must meet these standards through a series of specific documentation.

While we have already updated them since taking the program over in 2019, we’ve identified even more ways to help streamline them for you, the instructor. We rolled out the updated Standards on August 1st and can be found on our website here: Print[ED] Instructor Documents. As always, we hope to continue updating and improving our process to make sure you get the most benefit possible as a Print[ED] instructor!
