PACK EXPO Intl. 2012 Provides a Resource for Package Printing Innovation

It gives me immense pleasure to welcome—and applaud—PACK EXPO International 2012, owned and produced by PMMI, as the sole sponsor of the PRINTING content category featured on As the organizer of the biennial PACK EXPO International, coming to Chicago’s McCormick Place on October 28–31, and its sister exhibition, PACK EXPO Las Vegas, (Las Vegas Convention Center on September 23-25, 2013), PMMI’s history of producing trade shows that are favorites among brand owners, processors and packagers reaches back to 1956.

PACK EXPO’s sponsorship of PFFC’s rich PRINTING content category has two primary goals: to connect package printers and converters to suppliers that can provide the innovation they need, whether it be equipment or materials; and to provide a yearly in-person forum where these professionals can address the industry challenges, discover trends, and network.

It should be no mystery why PACK EXPO is sponsoring PFFC’s PRINTING category. Graphic representation is inherent to packaging as blue is to sky—both as common and universal! Similarly, PFFC, with a history dating back to 1927, is the owner of electronically archived PRINTING content—with articles numbering into the thousands—at that visitors can use to trace technology trends from the most current back to when its website first went live in 1995. Related PRINTING topics range widely on the following: Inks/Coatings/Primers, Prepress, Proofing, Screen, Digital, Decorating, Hot & Cold Stamping, UV, EB, Flexography, Gravure, Security, Doctor Blades, Letterpress, and Offset.

In addition to a wealth of PRINTING article content, buyers of machinery and services will find no greater resource than PFFC’s Online Buyers Guide, which is unmatched in the converting industry since the first printed version appeared in August 1944.

And for further developments dedicated to the PRINTING arena, we're pleased to issue the first of two Special Edition E-Clips e-newsletters highlighting news and updates on the activities taking place at PACK EXPO International 2012. Keep an eye out for the second edition on September 27th.

PMMI’s PACK EXPO exhibitions are a natural and logical resource for connecting buyers with sellers of machinery and services. The PFFC team is excited to embark on this partnership with them.
