This two-day workshop takes place in the Printing Industries of America’s state of the art prepress and digital printing laboratories. You will receive intensive, detailed hands-on instruction to get you completely knowledgeable on how to implement the techniques listed below. Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a G7® Digital Press Operator's certificate of completion by Printing Industries of America, endorsed by IDEAlliance.
