The Field Trip at UFT Printing Facility

During our class time, we went on a field trip to visit the UFT printing facility. The printing facility has showed me what to expect and gave me ideas of how the Design field works in terms of  printing. The UFT Print facility has many different printers and each has different purposes. These printers do so many things that I wasn’t awared of. The UFT printing facility is well established and like an facility it does many jobs for city public schools anywhere. Many people trust UFT printing facility to print their posters, envelopes, letterheads and so much more. Like I mentioned before, the UFT printing facility has many kinds of printing machines and each serving different purposes. Many of this machines are up to date, which is surprising because each machine is very expensive. However, the machines might cost money but the produces are very high quality results which makes the customers satisfy. The UFT printing owns many printers, one of the machines is the Epson Stylus pro 9800 which is used for large photos or graphic prints. Another machine they have is the is first of its kind here in the US which was brought from Japan. That machine was the Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 which is used for digital color prints. The machine was being beta tested and the owner of the facility Oscar Rivera decided to buy another one to expand his printing business. Many of these machines from UFT are work for thousands of jobs a day and Mr. Rivera makes sure that they always operational and maintain properly. The UFT Printing Facility is successful and it prints jobs for NYC public schools. UFT Printing facility produces also print work for all the 5 boroughs, and any kind of printing jobs that comes in, they make sure it’s done on time and even if there’s a problem they will make sure they get the job done. They print many things that we weren’t awared of like envelopes, school forms, and any kind of  document printed work needed. When the UFT facility first began they only had 2 printers and one PC. Now they have many machines and resources that help make the print facility run effectively. I have learn a lot of printing and the approach when printing for client or what machines to look in companies in regards to print jobs. I learned many printers and the equipment of printers to help me with my design work for printing.
