The Changing Landscape for Foil and UV Coating Decorating Options
June 25, 2019 2:00 PM to 2:40 PM (Eastern Daylight Time)The landscape for both metallic foil and specialty UV coating decorating has changed dramatically in recent years. Only a few years ago, foil decorating was limited to offline foil stamping. Today, foil is applied through digital processes and sheet-fed cold foil, as well as conventional methods. And, new technology and products have opened up new opportunities with specialty UV coatings, including spot profile (raised), spot glitter UV, soft-touch and much more -- available through digital inkjet and offline screen coating processes. This presentation will discuss the technology behind these processes and how they are creating new and exciting applications in the graphic arts community.
Provide Unique Value to Overcome Price Wars
July 2, 2019 2:00 PM to 2:45 PM (Eastern Daylight Time)Today’s world demands that we add unique, creative, and passionate value to all parts of the sales process. It is not optional and is imperative. We must “over-service” our accounts, make their lives simple, give them headache relief, and reduce their stress. We must anticipate their needs before they occur. And, must be seen by our clients as interactive partners (shoulder to shoulder with them) not transactional vendors (price based and across the table from them). Price is Price. Value = Price + Goods/Services + YOU! Learn to sell value, and succeed!
