“Over the years, SGIA Expo has become the largest North American show for large format digital printing solutions,” says Sal Sheikh, vice president, Marketing, Large Format Solutions, Canon Solutions America. “Customers come to see and evaluate manufacturers’ offerings, and often sign orders on the spot.” Sheikh notes that Canon Solutions America has always done well in that respect at SGIA Expo – and hopes to achieve the same result at its successor, PRINTING United (Dallas, Texas, October 23-25, 2019). Canon Solutions America, a steadfast supporter of print industry trade shows, sees the events as opportunities “to put more pages on Canon devices,” says Eric Hawkinson, vice president, Marketing, Production Print Solutions. He points out that the company is an “early adopter” and is also a sponsor of BRAND United, an initiative that aims to create a unified brand experience for brand owners, marketers, and other graphic media professionals at the PRINTING United Expo next year.
Graphic Visual Solutions has joined Two Sides North America, the non-profit organization that promotes and encourages the responsible production, use, and sustainability of print and paper.
“We welcome Graphic Visual Solutions to the growing Two Sides network of companies. They are a great example of an integrated company demonstrating the many different benefits of print and paper via design, marketing, printing and mail. We look forward to working with them to help promote the great sustainable features of their products,” said Phil Riebel, Two Sides North America President.
“Graphic Visual Solutions is proud to support Two Sides to promote and educate about the environmental sustainability of paper and print. With all of the myths and misleading environmental claims that are part of most paperless marketing campaigns (greenwashing), it’s important to us to support an organization that presents straightforward, balanced and verifiable facts in order to give stakeholders a solid foundation for making well-informed decisions about the use of print and paper,” said Bryan T. Hall, President & CEO, Graphic Visual Solutions.
