Print With Compassion

PWC Header SGIA 2015

The Print with Compassion (PWC) program is a series of educational sessions and hands-on training using Mimaki products that produce real-world objects and materials for use by local communities and organizations throughout the U.S.

The initial Print with Compassion program was co-located at the International Sign Expo in April 2015. Participants in our inaugural program helped create a kindergarten environment while learning each step of the digital print process using solvent, latex, UV and dye-sublimation technologies. Hands-on sessions include Design for Large Format Basics; Color Management for Non-Color Managers; Cut-and-Print, UV Printing, and Textiles Print Production; and Finishing and Assembly. We also presented a business session on how to integrate new technologies into existing operations. All objects and materials created during the program were donated to a local charity.

At SGIA 2015, we’ll carry on the tradition of providing for a local charity through the Print with Compassion Program. At this show, we’ll wrap a vehicle for the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation, which provides vision and hearing services through education, detection, prevention and treatment. Through collaborative partnerships, the foundation enables greater independence and increased quality of life for Georgians in financial need.

Visitors to SGIA can see the vehicle being wrapped live, in the Sidewalk Café area.
