A few weeks ago, while busy putting out fires and keeping the presses running in his in-plant, a manager got a call from his boss. The CFO had received an email, she said, and he wanted the manager to respond to it.
About 30 in-plant managers from colleges and universities all over Canada traveled to Ottawa for CUPMAC 2017.
I learned some very important things in Canada while attending last month’s College and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) conference. For instance, I was shocked to discover there is such a thing as poutine: french fries and cheese curds topped with gravy. It’s on every menu in Canada. Why didn’t we think of that in the U.S.?
Tomorrow is Canada Day. What's more, it's Canada's 150th birthday. I'll bet not many of you in the U.S. knew that. But after spending nearly a week in Ottawa, Canada's capital, watching the preparations, it became pretty clear to me that something big was in the works.
Increasing efficiency and improving the customer ordering process should be key goals for every in-plant. In a free webinar today you will learn how the State of Oregon’s Publishing & Distribution unit plans to accomplish these objectives with Web-to-print technology.

It may have looked and felt just like a traditional ACUP conference, but when the Association of College and University Printers met in Dallas in April, it was really a new beginning. This was the association's first meeting as a dues-paying, non-profit organization.
More than 40 people traveled to Niagara Falls for the College and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) conference in June.
The College and University Print Management Association of Canada conference drew almost 40 in-plant managers to scenic St. John’s, Newfoundland.
Frank Romano, professor emeritus at Rochester Institute of Technology, made the following observations at the recent College and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) conference in St. John’s, Newfoundland: • “Analog copiers will disappear,” he said, as multifunction devices take off. • The current growth market lies in the 40-ppm and higher color printers. • Four-up digital printers will increase in popularity, further eroding the litho market. • The “transpromo” trend is growing: printing ads on bills and transactional statements. “The next generation of digital devices will probably be ink-jet,” he speculated, noting their simplicity compared to toner devices.

THE COLLEGE and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) scored something of a coup this year. It succeeded in convincing popular industry speaker Frank Romano, professor emeritus at Rochester Institute of Technology, to address the group’s 39th annual conference, way up in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the most eastern point in North America (unless you count Greenland). Actually, Romano did more than just “address” the 39 managers in attendance. He captivated and amused them as well, while leading four sessions over the conference’s three-day span. And when he wasn’t at the front of the room, he watched the other presenters (among them a
FOR THE second year in a row I spent a few days with Canadian in-plant managers recently at the College and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) conference. It took place this year in St. John’s, Newfoundland, which sits on an island so far east you can almost touch Europe. Even the local accents have a strong dose of Irish in them. The cliffs, the colorful wooden houses, the view of the harbor from atop Signal Hill, all left me with pleasant memories, as did the rare string of sunny days that accompanied the conference. Memorial University of Newfoundland hosted CUPMAC, which is similar
The College and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) kicks off this weekend in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Hosted by Memorial University of Newfoundland, the 39th annual conference will feature popular printing industry speaker Frank Romano. Bob Neubauer, editor of In-Plant Graphics, will also give two presentations to the group.
In 2006, IPG attended the College and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) Conference in St. Johns, Newfoundland.
From college and university in-plants all over Canada, managers traveled to a resort in Ontario for the 38th annual CUPMAC conference. By Bob Neubauer For 37 years members of the College and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) have been getting together at locations around Canada to discuss their mutual concerns. Last month, for the first time, IPG joined them. Twenty-five members of the group met for four days at a lakeside resort in Ontario, about two hours northeast of Toronto. Despite some uncharacteristically hot and humid weather—especially jarring for those coming down from chilly Newfoundland—the group managed to have a good time
Who knew Canada could be so hot? When I flew up to Ontario last month to attend the College and University Print Management Association of Canada (CUPMAC) conference, I thought I would be getting away from the oppressive heat then plaguing the East Coast. But wouldn't you know, Canada was having a heat wave of its own. Even after driving into the woods two hours northeast of Toronto, the stickiness stuck with me. Despite this slight discomfort, though, the friendliness of the CUPMAC attendees and the beauty of the lakeside resort where we gathered made me forget the weather. (I even overlooked
In Australia and Canada, in-plant associations are hard at work educating their members and giving them the tools they need to thrive. By Bob Neubauer In-plants are certainly not just a U.S. phenomenon. Though the International Publishing Management Association (meeting this month in suburban Chicago) and the Association of College and University Printers (story on page 14) are probably the world's most successful in-plant groups, other country's in-plants have also formed associations. Two of these groups are NIPPA, (the National In-plant Print & Publishing Association), which draws members from Australia and New Zealand, and CUPMAC (the College and University Print Management Association of
