Why do print jobs “go bad?” Often they are a result of bad printing, bad materials, or inexperienced print personnel. Each month Printing Industries of America’s Research Department analyzes dozens of print jobs “gone bad,” and this session will examine recent cases to illustrate the common printing problems most widely overlooked. Here you will discover: the reasons for customer complaints, how to uncover the source of the problem, and recommendations for avoiding these setbacks in the future. The jobs featured will be similar to ones you have already experienced—plus new ones specific to printing process or material issues, that you never want to face!
