DIA April 15 meeting on variable data to go live online

The Digital Imaging Association’s (DIA’s) next meeting exploring the Creative Use of Variable Data to Expand Your Printing Business, will be in the form of an online webinar and will take place Wednesday, April 15 from 12:30 pm to 2 pm Eastern Standard Time. Many marketing solutions today mistakenly focus solely on fulfilling the digital components of a marketing or promotional campaign and ignore another crucial component – print! This webinar will discuss expanding your business portfolio by increasing the use of variable data for printers currently involved in, or looking at, diversifying into direct mail. A panel discussion will include industry leaders John Leonard and Steve Falk, who have both successfully grown their businesses using variable-data technology, as well as Felix Blackburn of XMPie.
