NPIRI Summer Course

Just like past years, Kustom Group taught the upcoming generation of the printing industry at NPIRI’s (National Printing Ink Research Institute) summer course. Every year this course provides an in depth learning experience of the printing world. It covers, in detail, everything from how/why to choose raw materials to watching a printing press run. This summer the course was held at the Sonoco Institute at Clemson University from July 14-19. Kustom Group’s David Aynessazian, VP Technical & Marketing, has taught at this course many times. This time David could be found sharing his knowledge of formulating litho inks and vehicles. Below is a picture from the event and more information can be found on NAPIM’s (National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers) website.
