Richard,
A couple of resources on use of digital technology by printers:

The PNEAC/SGIA 12/98 videoconference, "Using Screen Printing
Technologies for Business and Environmental Success," included a
session overviewing current and evolving digital pre-press technologies for
screen printers. There was also an in-plant case study of the first U.S.
screen printer to implement large-format computer-to-screen technology.

In April 2000, PNEAC and FTA will be broadcasting a videoconference for
flexographers, "High Performance Flexo: Printing with a Greener, Cleaner
Image." We will have a case study (being filmed later this month) of one of
the first U.S. companies to implement digitall imaged flexo plates.
