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.

We always enjoy sending a contingent of company reps to mingle and soak in the wisdom to boost our efforts - and, more importantly, improve the customer’s flexo products. In particular, we’re looking forward to attending the Tuesday, Oct. 10 speaker sessions, for which flexographic printing processes are a key theme.

As flexography continues to move forward, combining with digital as one printing unit, all 5 sessions on Tuesday are a must attend for anyone in the printing industry.
