COMMERCIAL PRINTER LAUNCHES LAYOUT SOFTWARE TRAINING PROGRAM
Jefferson City, MO – June 6, 2017 – Modern Litho, a national leading custom publication and commercial print organization in Jefferson City, Missouri announced today the launch of a premium service, Creativedge, aimed at helping marketing and creative professionals increase their skill level in industry standard Adobe® layout software.
“Working closely with marketers and graphic communications professionals as print buyers, we saw a need for training in practical application. Many times preparing a file for print vs. other media requires specific knowledge and further education than you would get from a graphic design degree, for example,” Jeff Davidson, Vice President of Corporate Strategy.
Creativedge is the first program of its kind offered and backed by a commercial printer, serving as a continued education resource for those in the graphic design, marketing and graphic communications industries. Training is delivered by an Adobe Certified Expert® through a live virtual classroom platform as well as customized learning environments that can be adapted to meet the clients’ needs. The program’s premier course, InDesign® Basecamp is ideal for all skill levels from the novice to the lifetime learner; and provides a solid foundation and working knowledge of the software.
“At the Modern Litho companies, we house talented employees who work in these programs every day and possess a deep knowledge of these robust programs. We’ve always had a culture of helping our clients with design layout and print file preparation. That will still continue, but now we’ve taken it to the next level and will be offering this expertise and more to clients and the larger graphic design community,” Davidson added.
Among other recent accomplishments, Modern Litho was named to the 2016 Publishing Executive Top 20 Magazine Printers list and ranked #169 on the 2016 Printing Impressions Top 400 Printers list. Modern Litho also boasts in excess of 12 unique certifications and designations for quality, environmental stewardship, and in-house production staff certification expertise.
