    MASTERCLASSES

    What is amazing is that in 2016 there are still a significant number of jobbing printers and specialised finishers that use historic technology for their everyday print production.

    And it is this unbroken chain of technical excellence and skills being handed down from one generation of printers to the next that The Print Show has set out to celebrate with our Print Masterclasses.

  • The Printers Arms

    THE PRINTER'S
    ARMS

    One of the key highlights of The Print Show is that it has its very own pub.

    The Printer's Arms, a place to take a load off, have some good food, sink a beer or two, and network with industry colleagues or customers.

    The Printer's Arms was founded to support one of the most important activities at any trade show, networking.

SUPPORTING TRADE ORGANISATIONS

At the heart of the UK print industry is the myriad of associations, charities, foundations, lobbying groups, federations, and manufacturer alliances.

Each contributes in its own way to the ultimate prosperity of the print industry. And so The Print Show has secured the support of each one, and is likewise offering the show's resources to these bodies to galvanise and encourage future growth.
