    Extended Producer Responsibility, or EPR, are programs designed to shift the burden of waste recycling from states and municipalities to the manufacturer or producer. These programs impose a tax or fee on printed paper and packaging to pay for the collection and recycling of these materials. EPR programs have significant ramifications for the printing industry and its customers. Take the time to learn how EPR impacts your customer, business, and what steps you can take to help your customer respond.

  • spacer Ask the Experts Webinar: Why Care About Verification?

    December 15, 2021 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time)

    Without verification, there is no process control, and without process control there is no consistency to your product. It really is that simple, and yet I see and hear many shop owners struggling with the color that is coming off their printers. Ray Weiss will lead attendees in a conversation on why verification matters (hint: it saves you money), when you should do it, and walk through an example so that the value is apparent. Attendees should expect to walk away with actionable lessons that they can implement in their own process.
    Speaker: Ray Weiss, Director, Digital Programs
