In collaboration with Hackerfarm, we're starting a Printing and Publishing meet up in Tokyo to share experiences, hold talks and run workshops on the printing process, technology, publishing industry, and much more.
So if you're an indie publisher, author, artist, game developer, product and packaging designer, graphic designer, or anyone else interested in the publishing and printing industry, come and join us for a casual meet and greet.
Venue to be announced shortly.
Through the group, we'll run talks, workshops, and share experiences on ebooks, print on demand, offset, screen printing, paper types, printing effects and working with printers, both local and in China. We'll also discuss the operations and business side publishing books, games and other products including logistics, distribution, marketing, PR, and sales.
If there's enough interest, we may also do a tour of Shenzhen, China to tour various printing factories to explore print options and possibilities, how to work with printers in China, why you need to work with multiple printers, and the back-end side of printing that is generally opaque to most authors, designers and publishers.
Hope to see you there!
