Success with any print-based marketing campaign depends on having a detailed map of where you’re headed and the best tools and strategies to help you get there. With this in mind, we host the American Litho University for building your brand.

If you’d like your team to really understand how print works, based on a thorough grasp of the latest technology, pre-press and pressroom procedures, then this seminar is a great opportunity. We bring in experts from Kodak, SAPPI and the U.S. Postal Service to round out the knowledge and perspectives of our own in-house pros. Visits to the production floor to see how it all works in real time give every ALitho U student a 360-degree education that leads to stronger planning and cost efficiency on your end.

We show clients from all vertical markets how our services contribute to success with both print and omni-channel initiatives. Open discussions created a lively exchange of questions and ideas – a forum that enriched and extended the learning for all of us.
