“As we continue to work with customers interested in Epson ColorWorks, it became clear there was a real need for an event that would allow them to roll up their sleeves for an in-depth training on the products and media available for use,” said Brenda McCurry, vice president, supplier services, ScanSource. “We were excited to partner with Epson to host this event, and believe our customers really enjoyed the hands-on educational opportunity.”
The two-day event kicked off Monday with a cocktail reception, followed by a baseball game at Chicago’s Wrigley Field. Tuesday included BarTender® label design software training from Epson label partner Seagull Scientific, as well as information on labels from top media producers Avery Fasson, Wausau Coated Products, and UPM Raflatac.

- Introduction to performance materials and adhesives
- Creating compliant, intelligent templates for specific industries
