Imaging Buffet Podcast 007 – Special Event: Teleseminar Recording



After a pretty long podcasting break, we’re back with a new show! This one does not have our traditional intro, just a short welcome note from me. It is a recording of a special “Virtual Book Tour” teleseminar that I conducted a few months ago. In it, I answer questions related to inkjet printing from subscribers of the Inkjet and Imaging Tips Newsletter. The show notes with links to more info can be found below:
