RyeTAGA at Graphics Canada


Over the last three days RyeTAGA was active at Graphics Canada, the largest showcase for the graphic communications and printing industries in Canada. It was an exciting time for both general members and executives, who were networking with industry members; including the Craftsman’s Club (IAPHC), who generously funded their space with us. At the booth we sold both the desk pad and swatch book calendars to fundraise for our production of the 2014 journal! This allows students to explore various technologies in print. This year at the trade show, large format and digital printers made a big presence, and showed off their quick turn around time by the use of toner instead of inkjet. The most anticipated technology of 3D printing was also present. These printers were able to print working prototypes and end products. Industry experts explained all the different materials that can be used in their printers, from plastics to silicone. We even saw a model of a human heart! In addition to the successful booth, this year we held School of Print; a series of four seminars presented by third and forth year students. The topics covered at the show where on conductive inks, u-commerce, accessible packaging, and wide format printing. Thank you to everyone that stopped by to chat, and made it a huge success! See you all next year!
