Reston, VA— The Association for PRINT Technologies has launched the APTech Connect ( Community Forum, a new and free online resource designed to foster engagement, collaboration, and information-sharing across the print industry’s value chain.

The APTech Community Forum’s goal is to create a virtual community replete with useful, user-generated content. The forum has the capacity to allow committees and working groups to create specific spaces to share information, including meeting minutes, privately and in real-time.

“Think of this new online community as an expert virtual peer group designed and built as a platform to drive engagement across all areas of the print industry. And that means everyone who is innovating and generating new ideas -- manufacturers, printers, designers, and creatives,” said Thayer Long, president, APTech.

Large portions of the forum will be open to the entire print community and are available to both APTech members and non-members.

“The industry needs to be shaped by new, creative, and innovative ideas,” said Long “Our organization is dedicated to giving a voice and providing platforms both real and virtual to encourage collaboration and communication for all stakeholders.”

Signing up for the APTech Community Forum is easy. Interested individuals can learn more by using the Getting Started Guide.( and get started for free at
