Antalis takes education on the road
Antalis UK is to present a series of workshops aimed at sign and print companies that are looking to expand their knowledge of new applications and explore opportunities to extend their services and increase revenue streams.
The successful workshops, which have been running since last September, normally take place at the company’s Digital Academy that is based at its headquarters in Coalville, Leicestershire, but in order to make them more accessible, Antalis will be holding a series of Regional Digital Academy Workshops. The first of these will take place in Exeter on 29th April at the Flybe Training Academy at Exeter Airport and will focus on signmaking, thus providing an ideal learning environment for experienced printers who are entering the sign and display market for the first time, as well as new employees of existing sign businesses.
Hosted by experienced signmaker, author and presenter Paul Hughes, a regular speaker at the Signmakers’ workshops at Sign & Digital UK, the day will encompass advice on vinyl selection criteria and demonstrations of basic application techniques using a range of Antalis materials.
Commenting on these new regional workshops, Giles Bristow, Antalis Digital Support Manager, said: “The workshops have proved to be hugely successful, which is why we are making them moreconvenient for customers to attend. They are designed to provide delegates with real hands-on experience, take-away examples and a thorough understanding of each business area in order to equip them to expand their service offering. They also provide an ideal learning environment for printers looking to dip their toes into new markets or for new employees joining established companies.”
More regional dates will be finalised shortly for the Signmakers, Colour Management, Frame what you Print and Intro to Vehicle Wrapping & Vinyl Application Workshops.
Places on the workshops are extremely limited and cost £75 each, to include materials and lunch.
