Printing companies in Cambridge get a confidence boost from investment in publishing university course
December 25, 2010 by Lyndon
Faith in the future of printing and publishing has been well and truly restored in Cambridge as the Master’s degree course in publishing at Angela Ruskin University is set to continue for the foreseeable future. Two new scholarships have been awarded for the publishing course which not only teaches practical publishing skills but also looks at a history of publishers and print companies in Cambridge and beyond. The scholarship bursary is awarded by The Worshipful Society of Stationers and Newspaper Makers and has been welcomed by local printing companies offering services such as stationery printing in Cambridge.
This investment in the printing and publishing industry stands local print companies in Cambridge in great stead as it shows a real faith in their future as well as an investment in the stationery printers of tomorrow. Cambridge students have been known to stay in the area to work in local industries and this would come at just the right time for local printing companies in the area who are seeing a surge in requests for services like stationery printing.
Cambridge businesses rely heavily on local print companies as they offer reliable and convenient printing services that support the infrastructure of many local firms. There is a hope amongst the printing community in the area that this investment in the future of the publishing and printing industry is the sign of prosperous times to come for local printing companies based in Cambridge.
