PRINTECH is an e-mail "listserv." As a listserv, PRINTECH uses e-mail to facilitate quick, focused communication among its members on a range of specific topics. PRINTECH is focused on technical aspects of environmental compliance issues faced by printers. Special attention is given to providing practical information on materials, practices and technologies that can prevent wastes and emissions at their source.
Messages sent to the listservs are archived for your convenience. View the archives.
Most of the subscribers to PRINTECH are professionals at trade associations or state/university pollution prevention technical assistance providers who help printers address compliance or waste reduction issues. As a tool for increasing dialogue among peers, PRINTECH helps each member assure that the answers that he or she provides to a printer represents the best collective answer among the group, rather than simply the best information that happens to be on hand at the organization first asked. To help assure that PRINTECH incorporates the latest information available to the printing industry, PRINTECH includes contracted expertise from the Graphic Arts Technical Foundation (GATF) and Printing Industries of America (PIA) to regularly monitor and participate in technical dialogues.
Think of it as an e-mail version of a "smart mailbox ." If you put a question in the mailbox, it automatically sends the questions to everyone on a list. When it gets a response to a question, the mailbox then gives you a copy as well as anyone on the list. Others can send supplemental responses, but correspondence is always copied to everyone on the list.
Subscribers to the list may ask a question, or reply to someone else's inquiry, simply by sending a message to the posting address:
Your message posted to the list needs to come from the address at which you are subscribed in order for the distribution software to recognize you as a member of the list. Subscribers may view all subscription addresses by sending a message to "firstname.lastname@example.org" which contains only the line: "who printech". Messages posted by non-subscribers are forwarded to the list manager who can post them. If a colleague of yours wants to post a message, please ask them to contact the list manager to be subscribed to the list or post it from your account by forwarding their message to the posting address.
