Editorial and production staff from publishers all over the country converged on the Edwards Brothers Malloy Jackson Road facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The seminar kicked off Thursday October 18, 2012 and featured two days of in depth coverage on book manufacturing.
Held twice a year and taught by employees, the seminar offers a mix of classroom and hands-on learning covering such topics as electronic imposition, pre-press, offset web and sheetfed printing, digital printing, hard and soft cover binding, and materials.
Over 3,000 industry professionals have attended this seminar since 1988.
This year’s seminar is not the first however it is the first produced by Edwards Brothers Malloy as a unified company.
This was an added bonus for this year’s attendees as they got to tour multiple facilities featuring a wide range of equipment.
The seminar gives those in the publishing industry an inside glimpse of what it takes to produce millions of books on an annual basis. Teachers at the event have century’s worth of combined experience in the book printing industry.
The basic book manufacturing seminar will continue as a bi-annual event within Edwards Brothers Malloy.
We are currently taking reservations for our next seminar to be held May 12-13th of 2013. Many publishing professionals find great value in learning more about the book printing process.
