We could not be more excited about presenting Trish Witkowski as this year’s featured speaker at the Field Paper Show. (And a huge thank you to Sappi Fine Paper for sponsoring her!) Trish is the absolute expert on anything to do with printed folded formats. And we are not talking about just tri-folds and accordion folds. We are talking crazy, cool, super unique folds like the traveling snake, double swinger, oyster and pinwheel twist. Not only will Trish inspire you with new folding ideas, but she’ll also explain production tips and do’s and don’ts. Designers and printers alike will gain knowledge and the know how to produce these.
About Trish Witkowski
Trish earned a Master of Science degree in printing and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design from Rochester Institute of Technology. For the last 20 years she has collected and analyzed thousands of print and mail samples from around the globe, and shared those findings with her customers. She has also done extensive research on the technical side of production folding and print finishing, even documenting folding compensation mathematics for the printing industry. Sappi Fine Paper has teamed up with Trish multiple times in the research, production and touring presentations of The Sappi Standards “Scoring & Folding” and “Bindery” volumes, “Folding for the Fabulous & the Frugal” fan deck, and the “Act Now: A Better Response to Direct Mail” book. Witkowski is the founder of FoldFactory.com and in 2004, was awarded the GATF InterTech award for her FOLDRite™ folding template system. She has written for magazines and blogs, and has given webinars and presentations to international audiences. Her love of sharing her passion has led to online courses for Lynda.com, and a popular weekly e-video series “60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week”.
