In the Bachelor of Science in Graphic Communications (GCOM) pre-press, press and post-press labs the possibilities are limitless. Students gain hands-on experience working with a 2- and 4-color Heidelberg offset lithography presses, a 6-color flexographic press, binding equipment, die cutting and a pneumatic cutter.

The lab equipment enables students to experience press runs similar to the printing industry’s production of magazines, calendars, packaging, labels, and other commercial print products. All this is part of the polytechnic approach integrated into GCOM’s learning environment.  

"My future employer will know that I already have the background and knowledge needed to create, print, and sell their product," said Hailey Vosen, GCOM student.
