Counterfeiting & Cyber Fraud

January 27, 2022

The U.S. Secret Service has a long and storied history of safeguarding America’s financial and payment systems from criminal exploitation. The agency was created in 1865 to combat the rise of counterfeit currency following the Civil War. As the U.S. financial system has evolved – from paper currency to plastic credit cards to, now, digital information – so too have our investigative responsibilities.

Today, Secret Service agents, professionals, and specialists work in field offices around the world to fight the 21st century’s financial crimes, which are increasingly conducted through cyberspace. These investigations continue to address counterfeit, which still undermines confidence in the U.S. dollar, but it is credit card fraud, wire and bank fraud, computer network breaches, ransomware, and other cyber-enabled financial crimes, that have become the focus of much of the Secret Service investigative work.

Student Night: Engle Printing & Publishing

February 24, 2022

Engle Printing & Publishing Co., Inc. (EPC) is a family-owned and family-operated business founded in 1954 by Alvin Engle and his wife, Pauline. The Engles started the business with a sheetfed Multilith press installed in the basement of their Mount Joy home. In 1959, the family became publishers when they purchased the Elizabethtown–Mount Joy Merchandiser, a community advertising paper with an original press run of 5,600. Alvin left his daytime job in 1960 and became a full-time printer/publisher.

The growing business overflowed into the family’s garage, then into a 20-by-100-foot shop in Mount Joy in 1965. EPC saw several expansions over the years—from new buildings to new equipment to publications. When Alvin passed away unexpectedly in 1971, Pauline kept the vision alive and continued the expansion efforts. EPC opened a Hempfield plant in 1998 to accommodate state-of-the-art equipment and a 16-unit, three-story Goss Universal Press.

Pauline passed away in 2020, and the next two generations of the Engle family are now continuing the company’s tradition of offering quality commercial printing services, fostering strong ties to the local communities, and expanding the EPC brand. The brand currently includes an extensive publication group of weekly community newspapers, a Pennsylvania travel guide, and several lifestyle magazines.

Color Management Update

March 24, 2022

ICC color management emerged in 1994 and almost died on the vine. But photographers and designers, working with RGB digital cameras and desk-top printers, saw ICC profiling as a God-send, enabling fast, in-house “pleasing color” prints without the cost and delay of outside services. The tools quickly improved to the point where a good ICC workflow could exceed both the quality and efficiency of traditional pre-press methods. Currently, ICC color management has totally revolutionized the printing and photographic worlds,

Nobody is better equipped to explain color management concepts than world-renowned color management expert and G7® inventor, Don Hutcheson. In a fast-paced, one hour presentation, Don will start with an overview of ICC basics, workflows and best practices, then share a few simple tricks by which anyone from creative to production can get the best possible color “match” between concept and finished job.

Plant Tour: Pop-It Graphics!

April 28, 2022

In 1996, Pop-It Graphics started as a humble family-owned fine art reproduction and wholesale print house that serviced local clients in the Lancaster area. Over the last year, Pop-It has gone through a number of exciting changes, the biggest being the expansion of our printing capabilities, including the purchase of HP Latex, Colorado, and Arizona printers.

The Pop-It of 2021 is a large format print company with the capability to print everything from banners and signs to dry-erase boards and boxes. Not only do we do large runs of typically-sized products, we also are able to create a variety of unique displays sure to catch people’s eye. In the hyper-competitive and fast-paced world we now live in, standing out is important–and Pop-It can help you get there.

As a franchise of the FASTSIGNS family, our core values are dedication to nearinstant communication and accurate delivery on time, every time. We believe in toptier customer care enhanced by an ambitious culture of continuous self-improvement. Pop-It never rests on its laurels… we always seek new ways to better ourselves!

We hope you are as excited as we are about our growth, not just in production capability and workforce but as a company that aims to be the leader in large format printing for Lancaster and beyond!
