The GLGA Premiere of Standard #6

GLGA is pleased to announce the return of Daniel Dejan, North American ETC Print & Creative Manager for Sappi, who will present the newest volume of The Standard, the invaluable educational resource for graphic designers and printers. This special event will be held on June 3, 2015, at FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Hanover Park, IL.

Every choice made in the design and execution of a print project adds to the quality and style of the end result—this includes images, type, paper, layout, printing techniques and binding. Of all the overlooked design options, choice of binding technique ranks near the top. Binding choice need not be a result of how you design, but can be a design solution in itself. The Standard 6 dives deeply into binding—detailing the history, available materials, and types of binding to choose from. Printed on Sappi McCoy, The Standard 6 tells the story of binding across five chapters, each bound into the book using a different binding technique and featuring inspirational graphics, impressive printing, embossing and binding techniques as well as invaluable educational information about how to specify and plan binding for your print communications.

Don’t miss Daniel’s entertaining and informational presentation. The evening will be rounded out with demonstrations by FUJIFILM, networking and light refreshments. All participants will receive a copy of the new Standard 6 volume.
