Clemson Proofing and Visualization Seminar - a Can't Miss Event

Explore the CU Shop and virtually experience packages

Join Clemson in a hands-on learning event March 27 and 28 at the Sonoco Institute on campus. The Sonoco Institute was created to exploit the synergies that exist between the graphic communications and packaging science departments. It is the only university program in the country with this one-of-a-kind multidisciplinary approach to packaging as a core competency.

This brand new, two and a half day seminar explores the current state of proofing and prototyping capabilities while getting hands-on with the latest hardware and software technologies available. Industry experts and brand owners will discuss the requirements to successfully create accurate simulations of the final product.
