Bigger than Phantom Menace?

Bigger than Phantom Menace?  Well, probably not, but it could 
happen ...

Reminder:  Make sure you are registered to attend the December 2 
videoconference, "Using Screen Printing Technologies for Business and 
Environmental Success."

If you are interested in learning more about environmental challenges 
faced by screen printers, and how new technologies are helping screen 
printers grow business while improving environmental performance, 
this is one program you can't miss.

This videoconference is being brought to you through the cooperative 
efforts of Printers National Environmental Assistance Center, the 
Screenprinting and Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA), and the 
University of Wisconsin-Extension, with funding from EPA. 

The program will feature three case studies:
(1) Romo, Inc. of DePere, which reduced TRI emissions by over 90% 
through changing screen cleaning chemicals and practices;
(2) Modernistic, Inc. of St. Paul, the first screen 
printer in the U.S. to install a large-format computer-to-screen 
system, eliminating traditional photoprocessing and related wastes;
and (3) T.S. Designs of Burlington, NC, which has reduced air 
emissions and increased efficiency through adoption of a water-based, 
automated adhesive application system.

For you sports fans we'll also have a "You Make the Call" segment.  
See if our printers stay in-bounds on the screen pass.  We'll also 
have "One Minute Futures" from industry experts.
