The annual Flexographic Technical Association Fall Conference will be quickly upon us. Slated for Oct. 9-11 in St. Louis, FTA 2017 will give hundreds in the realm of flexographic printing services numerous educational and networking opportunities.

In particular, we’re looking forward to attending the Tuesday, Oct. 10 speaker sessions, for which flexographic printing processes are a key theme.
