During the Printing Concepts Open House this May, 2013, we welcomed our customers and vendors alike to participate in night of demonstrations, tours, music, food and fun. We had a great time at our Open House, and everyone was thrilled to be a part of this event. In all, over 120 people showed up to our Open House, from all over northwest PA, western PA, and even eastern Ohio.

At the event, we showed off our Esko digital finisher by die cutting our own Printing Concepts playing cards with playing card box, our new die cut brochure that folds in literally a hundred different ways, labels provided by Mohawk Paper and more! The Esko was obviously the hit of the Open House. With a demonstration every hour, the crowd grew and stayed by the Esko, asking questions and generating amazing ideas that everyone can use for their own projects. Shawn Liocano of the production floor, and Michael Sullivan from sales were answering tons of questions about the Esko, saturating our guests with terrific project ideas.

In the rear of the plant, we featured our GBR Inserter with 3 cameras that can scan, match, and finish a complete mailing piece. Rolland Ackley from Mailing was heading the machine as we inserted and completed our 3-Month Newsletter project. Rolland helped discuss the mechanics and abilities of the GBR as people watched and asked questions.

Sam Hyman, a musician from Erie, helped everyone feel comfortable while they enjoyed the night eating food, socializing with Printing Concepts staff, and each other. Our Open House event was a huge success, and it is still the talk of the town a month later.

We hope everyone will come back for our next Open House. View some of the photos from our Open House above.

Thank you to our guests for making the night magical for all of us at Printing Concepts, and thank you to our participating sponsors, HP, Mohawk Paper, USPS, and Xpedx.
