Print is everywhere! More than just books and newspapers, the graphic communications industry plays a major role in the creation and manufacture of the products and materials you handle every day—even those you view in a digital format on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Did you know printing is the number one manufacturing industry by number of establishments? It’s also the fourth largest manufacturing employer in the United States. As one of the largest and most influential industries in the United States today, one that is always fast changing and technology driven, it remains an exciting area with much job potential. The New PrintScape takes you on a guided tour of the vital and dynamic landscape of print. Filled with statistics, charts, and graphics, it provides a comprehensive overview of today’s printing, or graphic communications, industry—from its history to its practices, products, people, and future.
Designed for students, new hires, and anyone entering or considering becoming a part of graphic communications, the workbook features self-study quizzes with each section, an area for notes, and a glossary of terms.
This popular “orientation-in-a-box” program has been brought full up to date with this third edition and provides an overview of all aspects of the industry, including products, processes, workflow, job roles, safety, and more. Familiarize yourself with all the new industry terms and quiz yourself on your retention of printing knowledge. Get all of the basics of printing in one place: The New PrintScape.
The Student Workbook, the program text, allows for reading, self-study, and note taking and includes a glossary of industry terms used throughout the program. It is the companion text to the other program elements, containing additional statistics and information on the industry overview, print markets, career paths, the complete printing process, health and safety in printing plants, and training and professional development.
The e-learning module sessions features an audio narration of the program and is packed with information, graphics, and video clips, presenting a colorful, fast-paced overview of key concepts, processes, and terms. The student has control over lesson content and pace, with table of contents and search allowing access to all parts, and the inline graded quiz provides immediate assessment of knowledge gained as the program progresses. It can be played on a tablet or a laptop or desktop computer.
