Field Trip to Quad and Print 13

The Graphic Arts Association and Professor Conati just returned Sunday (September 8, 2013) from a three day field trip to Quad Graphics and Tempt in Wisconsin and Print 13 in Chicago. Students were quite impressed by the sheer size of the Quad plant in Sussex, Wisconsin. The tour of Tempt gave the students a chance to see the Inca Onset S-70 digital UV press in action which is one of the largest UV inkjet presses in the country. Tempt is a company that specializes in point-of-purchase displays and they have recently be acquired by Quad Graphics. On the final day of the field trip, the students spent one day at McCormick Place in Chicago experiencing Print 13. It was a great learning experience and provided a lot of fun for the 21 Ferris State University students who participated.
