Washington State University Publishing has just installed an 11-color 44˝ Epson Stylus Pro 9900 wide-format printer. In the first two months the 45-employee in-plant has had the machine, it has pumped out well over 200 posters and other projects.
Eight more in-plants recently earned Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain-of-custody certification through the InGreen group certification program for in-plants. They include Colgate University, Villanova University, Bayer Corp. and Yale University.
At age 14, Steven Rigby became an Eagle Scout, the highest achievement in the Boy Scouts of America program. As he completed the final leap to the top of the Scouting ranks, he also took his first step toward a top-notch career in printing.
Winner of the In-Plant Printing and Mailing Association’s coveted Management Award, Washington State University Publishing was one of the first in-plants to receive FSC chain-of-custody certification. The Pullman, Wash.-based shop was among the first to add a digital color press when it installed an HP Indigo 3050 five years ago. But one bit of ’90s technology the 58-employee in-plant still held onto was its Heidelberg Hercules imagesetter.
