When your employees and customers understand the fundamentals of paper, they better understand the value your company provides. After a successful inaugural event last September, NPTA Paper School will return again this fall.
This half-day program teaches the most important topics in paper and provides each attendee with a strong foundation of knowledge to build on. The five classroom sections are taught by paper industry leading experts from top paper mills. Attendees will access the Graph Expo 14 tradeshow floor and take a guided tour of the most advanced printing equipment in the world. Paper School attendees will receive complimentary access to the Graph Expo showfloor.
