Art Department Welcomes Paper 101
The Art Department and Graphic Design II (AR403) sponsored PAPER 101 on Wednesday afternoon. Attendees included students, faculty and several design staff from Saint Mary's Press. This information session included overviews of paper manufacturing, use of coated vs uncoated paper, sustainability in the printing and paper industry, and opportunities and suggestions for networking in the print and graphic design fields. Specification Representative Paula Allan from xpedex and Account Manager Mike Libby from Sappi Paper Company did a wonderful job of engaging the students and opening a dialogue about paper sourcing.
