Digital Printing Technologies: How They Work and When to Use Them

Michele Shepard, PhD

With the advent of the computer and internet, it seemed like doomsday for the print industry. Yet we still print books, magazines, legal papers, and, yes, a never-ending stream of junk mail. Print volume has indeed gone down, but printers and entrepreneurs have found ways to survive and even prosper by adopting the newer digital technologies. In this session we will contrast the traditional with the digital printing industry. We will also examine how the various digital technologies work, with a focus on inkjet, and why some diverse digital print businesses are successful and others are not.

Instructor: Michele Shepard recently retired from a career at Hewlett-Packard and Memjet in print-engine development and manufacturing, specializing in materials. She earned her PhD in chemistry from UC San Diego.
