Dear Member, here is your weekly e-flash!

95% SAY FACE-TO-FACE MEETINGS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR LONG-TERM BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS!

Yes, we’ve said this before that networking is an essential part of building  connections and business relationships. But how about having some fun while doing it at neat locations with great food and drinks! Let’s not forget that although new connections are great, letting the existing ones know you're still around is just as important.

Here are a couple benefits of networking:

  1. Generating referrals/Increased business – “It’s not who YOU KNOW but who KNOWS YOU”. This is probably the most obvious benefit and the reason most people decide to participate in networking activities.
     
  2. Connections – “It’s not WHAT you know but WHO you know.” If you want a successful business, then you need to have a great source of relevant connections in your network that you can call on when you need them.

Make your reservations now and plan to attend the next two Cocktails and Conversations networking events. Contact Emily Holguin at 323.728.9500, ext. 262 or click here to register online.

TECH EXPERTS JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY!

Ask The Tech Experts is a resource of PIA's Center for Technology and Research that features the responses to questions covering a wide gamut of topics. This is a free service to PIASC members.

If you would like to ask a technical question, simply email Dillon Mooney at dmooney@printing.org or call PIA's toll-free hotline at 1.800.910.4283.

QUESTION: I’m moving my digital presses to a new location. What should I do to ensure a successful move?

ANSWER: Because of the sensitive nature of the components, it is prudent to use the press manufacturer’s personnel (likely required with leases) or at least professionals experienced in moving digital presses. There are often specific procedures for powering down and re-starting the presses. It’s also wise to back up the operating software. Ideally, you should move one digital press at a time and re-start it in the new location before moving the other presses.

 

FREEDOM DOGS, AMERICAN PIES AND MUCH MORE - SATURDAY, JULY 1ST

Celebrate the country’s birthday at the Printing Museum’s annual Independence Day Celebration event with our Founding Fathers, otherwise known as The Confounding Brothers! Ben Franklin, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson will give a humorous and thought provoking account of the creation of The Declaration of Independence and how our nation came to be.

The day’s festivities include special working tours of the Printing Museum collections, including the opportunity to print your own Declaration on Franklin’s Colonial press. Take home lots of patriotic souvenirs printed on our authentic tabletop presses.

Your admission includes a lunch of Freedom Dogs, American Apple Pie, and Colonial Punch in Madame Brillon’s French Garden de Liberte, all while being serenaded by our 18th Century musicians The Colonial Roses. Activities for the whole family are throughout the day in the Museum galleries. In the Museum’s Heritage theater there will be the entertaining show “The Confounding Brothers” written and performed by our own Phil Soinski.

Plan to show up at least an hour before showtime and to stay for 2-3 hours watching the show and doing activities. The show is suitable for ages 10 and up.
