Label Academy to host second virtual master class

Label Academy, the global training provider for the label and package printing industry, is to follow up its inaugural virtual master class on digital label technology from June with a further learning opportunity in October; this time covering flexible packaging.

As with the previous virtual master class, Flexible Packaging will be presented by Labelexpo’s strategic director Andy Thomas-Emans, who will be joined by guest speakers from companies including BOBST, Esko, Flint Group, HP Indigo, MPS Systems, OPM Labels & Packaging, and Synthogra. The master class will also be split into two two-hour parts; part one will take place on Tuesday 20 October, and part two takes place on Tuesday 27 October.
Part one will cover materials and print processes, with sessions including: an introduction to flexible packaging; creation of artwork and pre-press; and printing processes and techniques.
Part two will focus on setting up a flexible packaging operation, with sessions including: flexible packaging and the label printer; inks, coatings, curing and laminating; converting flexible packaging; and from labels to flexibles – a converter perspective.
Thomas-Emans said: “We are delighted to offer our latest online learning opportunity that builds on the success of our first virtual master class in June. The appetite for learning is gaining momentum in these changing times, as the global industry recognizes the benefits of honing its skills and being ready to respond to the market as it recovers post COVID-19. Flexible packaging will be an essential part of that.
“Moving into this lucrative and fast-growing market is nevertheless a complex process. Therefore, I would encourage anyone involved in label and package printing production who may be considering diversifying to take part in these sessions, and also purchase a copy of the accompanying, and recently updated, Label Academy Flexible Packaging book.”
The Flexible Packaging virtual master class costs 95 USD per session.
