Contrary to popular belief, our newly supersized wide format print operations aren’t run on jumbo-scaled presses by giants handling 4’x8′ foam boards as if they were sheets of paper.
It is, however, practically mythical how print-savvy, regular-sized humans can create larger-than-life prints.
Look, here’s one now!
Meet Brian Rohde, Wide Format Project Manager & Operator
Name & Title
Brian Rohde, Wide Format Project Manager & Operator
I Started at Quad Graphics in the finishing department. Then I went to Plastic Services where I learned screen printing and worked my way up learning all the facets of the printing industry. From there, I was at Specialized Output Printing prior to joining Delzer.
What drew you to this industry?
I had a Friend at Plastic Services who asked if I could help him out. Through that, I found out that I am really good at printing and have not stopped since.
About Your Role at Delzer
Unlike Delzer’s digital and offset department who employ separate project managers and machine operators, I not only set up the artwork to be print ready, but I also run the machines. It’s a very hands-on role that requires strong attention to detail along with the skills needed to give quality output on the equipment.
