WHAT DO WE DO?
All Student Chapters of TAGA compete to produce the best overall technical journal. The journal contains research papers written by students during their third year Printing Processes course. The best research papers are then published in the journal. All of the research tests conducted are supported by equipment donations from the Canadian printing industry. RYETAGA student members take part in every aspect of our journal production. The steps that we take in producing our journal are from concept to final product. From the beginning our students research and write all the technical writing that is the content of our journal. Our students take their creativity to design an innovative concept for the journal. Our student members apply what we learn about print and execute it during journal production. We preflight, impose, proof, print, bind, package and present our journal. This year in particular, we would like to learn more about FinePix REAL 3D Technology, as we are incorporating lenticular technology into our journal. As a result, our members at RYETAGA will gain more experience and insight in the process of creating our technical journal.
