Our vendor fair is the chance to show off your latest and greatest products to print buyers, printers, employees, customers, and other suppliers. This year, we're predicting over 100 other printers joining us and plan to double customer traffic.

Our invited guests will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with you, our vendors. They'll have an opportunity to take plant tours, where we'll highlight our new 12-color UV LED press, as well as our new roll-to-roll digital hybrid press, the Graphium.

Dana Starkell and Dan Black will each have two breakout sessions for our guests to enjoy. Our Partners in Printing National Sales Meeting will carry on the tradition of providing an unique experience to all who attend.



Here's what our lineup is like so far. Check back often to see who else is joining.



Including FUJIFILM, Sefar Inc., Sun Chemical, 3M, and more, our vendor shows featured the best suppliers in the industry.
