SIGN News Antalis Digital Academy


Antalis has announced its 2017 programme of Digital Academy workshops, as part of their ongoing commitment to provide a hub of information, live demonstrations and training to those looking to expand their dig- ital print business.


The academy covers 25 different work- shops, which provide training in a range of courses such as vehicle wrapping, colour management and screen print film separa- tions.


Antalis say they are uniquely placed to mon- itor new technologies arriving on the market and pre-empt the likely training require- ments of customers seeking to diversify their business offering.


The appointed tutor that runs the workshop is an independent expert who can bring in- dustry-leading coaching to the sessions. For laminating and finishing, Marc Hansing from adhesive coating experts, Drytac, will work with Antalis to showcase best practice in laminating.


Other workshops in development for 2017 include textile printing, interior decorations and wallpapers.


Giles Bristow, Antalis’ Digital Support Man- ager, said: “In the past, printers have shied away from venturing into these growth areas as they may have lacked the know- how or the means to acquire the required technology. With new accessible and af- fordable technologies arriving on the scene, our aim is to commission our industry ex- perts to teach them how to do it, sharing those invaluable tricks of the trade.”


Also being planned are additional RIP soft- ware and colour management courses to assist those who are running large format printers.


Antalis Digital Academy are running a number of courses in 2017, in subjects such as colour management and software.


Giles said: “We’ll never have more than eight people in each session to make sure each delegate has quality time with the tutor and can get hands-on with the equipment. For vehicle wrapping we cap the group at four so they have plenty of time to hone their livery skills while the tutor is present to guide and assist.”


Since the academy launched, there have been pop-up workshops across the UK and Ireland, including Leeds, Livingstone, Nor- wich and Plymouth, as well as in Dublin. For 2017, there are plans to take the academy to Belfast in April and host return visits to Bristol in February and Dartford in March. The Digital Academy team will also present seminars on colour management at Print- WeekLive! and Sign & Digital UK, both in March.


With Antalis keen to promote careers in the industry, the resources of the Digital Acad- emy are also available to students of Leicester College. Last year, a group of the college’s students were given the opportu- nity to enhance their knowledge of colour management by attending the workshop free of charge. The partnership continues and free spaces are available on each and every course, should the students wish to expand their knowledge and understanding of that particular area of digital printing.


Free spaces are also offered to winners of the Print Futures Awards so that young peo- ple looking to work in printing or graphic arts are equipped with training to help them with their career.
