Transcript of COPI Press
As one of the major printing organizations in Cebu, the Cebu Organization of Printing Industries (COPI) brings together all local printing companies to expand connections.
Businessmen from the industry were invited to join their general membership meetings and planning sessions to promote the sector’s interests.
Print media was expected to have a strong decline because of the age of the Internet, thus creating extreme pressure on the industry.
In response, COPI addresses these needs by establishing linkages with other professional organizations and government agencies to help businesses gain traction in the industry.
In 2014, COPI’s membership boosted to 51 companies of mixed classifications.
These companies help each other; from marketing strategies, the basics of starting a business and even coping mechanisms for the companies that are struggling in the rise of electronic media in the Philippines.
COPI also aims to develop

camaraderie and healthy competition among industry players by leveling off the playing field.
All of the entrepreneurs are given access to training, proper financing, printing forums, exhibition participation and other activities that can improve their standards of doing business.
COPI was founded last 2012 by several printing companies that saw the need to unify the interests of all printing businesses in Cebu to further develop the industry.

INDUCTION OF OFFICERS
The Cebu Organization of Printing Industries (COPI) employs the rules of sustainability in order to provide not only band-aid solutions to their problems, but projects with long-term positive effects.
“The usual gripes of the industry are lack of capital, business continuity from one generation to the next, non-formal management, lack of competent manpower, and lack of government support,” said Edwin Villaver, incumbent secretary of COPI and manager of Optima Typographics.
Common problems in the printing industry increase along with the impact of electronic media and distribution and the effects of globalization and climate change.
Talks on sustainability
On the seventh General Membership Meeting (GMM) of COPI at Harold’s Hotel on June 19, the theme “Printer’s Competitiveness amidst Globalization & Climate Change” will be followed.
Joel Lee of Urban Resilience and Regeneration Consulting (URRGEN-C) will be giving a talk on sustainability and how to apply it in the printing industry, making it resilient against present and future issues.
Guest speakers Luningning Regala of Ideal Marketing & Manufacturing Corp., Romeo Montecillo of Cebu Technological University, WeijiOng from Flint Ink, and Vidhu
Gautam from Kodak will be giving that will offer a different perspective on the wide range of issues at hand.
The role of graphic design
“Graphic design is an integral part of the print production process and companies are always in search for qualified personnel,” said Faustino “Jun” Sibi, a member of COPI.
In today’s setting, many clients expect the whole package in printing presses- this includes graphic designers who are capable of creating layouts for their orders.
With only a few universities offering graphic design courses, there is a lack of manpower in this sector, which is one of the biggest problems in many printing businesses.
To augment this need, COPI is in talks with Cebu Technological University (CTU) to have them deploy their graphic arts course graduates to the different member companies of the organization.
Without the formal training, proper curriculum and right theoretical background, it takes a long time to produce competent graphic design artists, only to lose them to other companies in industries abroad.
COPI believes that being in partnership with schools is the first step to solving the manpower problem in the design units of many of the printing businesses in Cebu and the start of the implementation of sustainability in its future projects.
COPI redirects: Sustainabilityamidst challenges
COPI has some activities planned for the benefit of our member printers and to sustain our own organization.
It is of vital importance that aside from the annual dues which we give and of course the very generous sponsorships of our suppliers, we also need to find other sources of income.
This goes hand in hand. Having a stable source of funds and being able to use this to provide benefits for our members is one of our ultimate goals.
So, the officers have come up with some ideas which we want to implement.
1.) Scrap aluminum plates - COPI plans to buy the used aluminium plates from member printers for a considerably higher rate than your usual junk shop. COPI will hire a truck to pick up the plates on a scheduled day. Then the aggregated scrap will be sold straight to a foundry. Eliminating middle men in the process allows COPI members to get better value for their scrap. In turn, COPI will earn a little percentage from the sale.
2.) Scrap paper - Basically the same idea but this time with our scrap paper.
3.) Blade sharpening - COPI plans to establish a service center where members can get their blades sharpened at a better rate.
Details of these activities are still being finalized and members will be notified once it is complete. These are the projects we want to prioritize for this year.
We, the officers, hope you, as our members, would cooperate and patronize this initiative.

Industry roadmap for ASEAN 2015
CCCI welcomes COPILeading Cebu’s business community, the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (CCCI) welcomed the neophyte printing organization, COPI to its roster of business organizations.
As the Cebu Chamber is one of the few organizations that can protect entrepreneurs, membership with them will enable COPI to advance and defend the interests of the printing sector through numerous programs such as studies, researches, advocacies,
The Philippine Center of Print Excellence Foundation has asked COPI to participate in creating a printing industry roadmap for the country.
“The objective of the Printing Industry Roadmap is to help Philippine printers prepare for the coming 2015 ASEAN Integration,” said Allan Asi, the PCPEF director-in-charge for the Printing Roadmap Project.
To make a comprehensive roadmap, PCPEF has asked for COPI’s participation in examining the state of the printing industry in Cebu.
Working with the De La Salle University’s Center for Business Research and Development (DLSU-CBRD), members of the organization were interviewed about their strife and success in the industry.
“Mostly, we tackled on business operations, creating good investments, how to make the business more efficient, and what is needed by entrepreneurs to achieve so,” said Faustino “Jun” Sibi of F.F. Sibi Enterprises, treasurer of COPI.
Through COPI’s participation, the needs of the printing industry in Cebu will be voiced out to the
COPI Press is the official news publication of the Cebu Or-ganization of Printing Industries Inc. The name is a play on the “coffee press”, which is a simplecoffee brewing device patented by an Italian designer in 1929.

This roadmap is directed to improve the industry and make it at par with other printing industries in the ASEAN region.
Asi said the roadmap would be submitted to the Department of Trade and Industry’s Board of Investments (DTI-BOI) before the end of the year.
This will then be part of DTI-BOI’s Industry Development Program (IDP) wherein a total of 26 industry roadmaps for the manufacturing sector have been produced since the launching of the program last 2012.
“The roadmaps that have been created envisions a growth trajectory for the next 15 years, as well as plot policy and industry-level support measures to help achieve the industry’s goals,” said DTI Undersecretary Adrian Cristobal on the official government website of the Department of Trade and Industry.

Christmas came early on the sixth of December 2012, as COPI celebrated its first Christmas dinner as an organization.
All nine directors of the board, COPI members and guests graced the dinner event at Café Capriccio, Nivel Hills, Lahug Cebu City.
Formalities began the event as member businesses were introduced to the premise of the organization. The dinner served as one of the organization’s first formal meeting with its members.
A visual presentation of the logo and the organization’s vision and mission was led by then newly elected president, Ramon Clavano of Clavano Printers who explained the company’s dire company’s direction:
Print excellence through one voice.This was followed by several
announcements regarding the organization in the following year such as the induction, membership dues, and tentative activities for the year 2013.
The fun began as the formal meeting came to a close and the members basked in the yuletide cheer with fellow businessmen during the Members Fellowship that followed.
The Christmas dinner aspired to give thanks for all the blessings over the past year, for the successful formation of this printing organization and for gathering Cebu’s printing businesses in one place for one night.

Third COPI assembly with Fuji XeroxIn an effort to make the local print industry a “digitally-smart” one, COPI brought Fuji Xerox Philippines Inc., one of the country’s largest providers of document management solutions to its third General Membership Meeting (GMM).
Over forty members from different print businesses in Cebu, digital, offset, specialized, or others, gathered for the GMM named “Digital Business Opportunities at your Fingertips” organized by Fuji Xerox at the Laguna Garden Café last March 21, 2013.
Fuji Xerox wanted the audience to understand the digital printing experience, bringing in two of their managers to talk about it, and many other materials and samples.
Leeyan Tan, Sales Manager from the Graphic Arts and Transactional team did a comparative presentation to show the relationship of digital printing in contrast to the traditional offset printing.
In recent studies, digital businesses actually break down traditional barriers between industry segments that offset printing creates. When this advantage is used right, it could make a digital business successful.
Fuji Xerox Account Manager Rialyn de Guzman then discussed on “Selling Digital”, which presented how digital printing revolutionized the way people manufacture and market products.
Digital printing makes it easier for home users and offices to do their own printing.
It is this breakthrough that threatens the traditional printing businesses that will not invest in digital printing equipment.
To prove that digital printers have outstanding quality, Fuji Xerox brought their latest production printers such as the 700i Digital Color Press and the Color 560/570 printers.
Also, Fuji Xerox gave away two of their DocuPrint P205 b printers in a raffle draw during the event, and many other giveaways were raffled off as well.
Aside from the talks and demos given by Fuji Xerox, the GMM of COPI had the regular formalities of a general assembly of members with complete financial reports, dues that needed to be paid off, and future activities .

Copylandia Office Systems Corporation, one of the country’s leading providers of advanced copying and printing solutions, took part in COPI’s fourth GMM at the Caspian Room, Waterfront Hotel, Lahug last May 30, 2013.
Named “i-POD: I Print On Demand! How About You?”, Copylandia discusses the advantages of having the technology that can accommodate the print-on-demand sector.
An exhibit with Copylandia’s industry partners Develop Digital Press, RISO Digital Duplicators, ComColor Hi-Speed Inkjet Printers and Horizon Bindery Solutions was shown in the morning of the meeting as an introduction to print-on-demand.
Their exhibit was composed of printers displayed for demonstration such as Develop’s ineo+ 8000, a multi-purpose digital printer and ComColor’s low-cost inkjet printers that can provide full-color prints.
To provide an in-
depth discusion, speakers from Copylandia discussed
about varied sides of print-on-demand, why many offset printers have trouble addressing this need and what are probable solutions to those problems.
Atty Neri B. Yu, assistant legal consel of the Bureau of Internal Revenue was present as one of the resource speakers during the GMM.
She discussed on how printing business can get authorization to print receipts, invoices and other official documents that need legal approval before distribution.
Prizes were raffled during the meeting; gift vouchers over P50,000 and other items were given away, with Ropredave Books Supply & General Merchandise bagging the two major prizes of the night.
With the complete participation and active cooperation of the attendees, the GMM was deemed successful and COPI “looks forward to having a long-drawn partnership” with Copylandia and other industry partners.
UBIX Corp. shares expertise in fifth GMMand offered demonstrations on to go with their seminar.
On making the production process more efficient, Jessi Echon, UBIX Corp.’s General Sales Manager for RISO Sales introduced the Riso Machine MZ Series (M7 8700 AG) which features two-color risograph prints and can be connected to devices such as laptops and computers,
Manager for Copier Sales Migs de Guzman tackled on printing procedures on network print management and secure printing, color management and profiling, shared scanning for better workflow management, and many other topics.
Forty-three attendees from different printing businesses in Cebu were given hands-on experience with the printers brought by UBIX, guided by hardware and software solutions specialists.
UBIX Regional M a n a g e r was present during the event to receive the certificate of appreciation
from Pres. Ramon Clavano.Dinner, promotions, prizes, were
provided for with over P200,000 raffled off alongside giveaways from UBIX Corp. and other industry partners.
These outputs were printed by the Konica Minolta C6000 Production Printer and the bizhub C454.
One-stop shop printing solutions provider UBIX Corporation partnered with the Cebu Organization for Printing Industries to offer insight on how one can reduce waste, improve workflow and save money in the production process.
UBIX brought industry experts to talk about cost-efficient and sustainable printing strategies during fifth GMM of COPI at Laguna Garden Café last July 12, 2013.
With partners Prestige Paper Products and GMP Philippines, UBIX displayed their best printers with high quality outputs
COPI holds Printer’s Technology Forum ‘13Over 25 local printing companies gathered at the Printer’s Technology Forum- a whole day event organized by Cebu Printers Organization for the Cebuano printing press industry at the Waterfront Hotel, July 26, 2013.
Various topics on all segments of the printing process were covered during the seminar, divided into eight specific talks by different speakers flown from different parts of the country.
The first speakers were Noel Soquerata and Adrian Litonjua of the German-based Heidelberg, a famous international printing machine manufacturer. Tackling the topic “Fault and Remedy for Press & Post-Press”, forum attendees had a stronger grasp on the printing business.
Irene Buloron of Xtide Asia Pacific followed, introducing the delegates to better color management .
Buloron showed delegates how to improve color matching between the
marketing purposes. Eco-friendly prepress production with Fujifilm Philippines’ Randy Escudero then emphasized on the need for more sustainable methods for printing companies to use in light of environmental awareness.
Branch manager of Micro Ink Philippines and managing director of Hubergroup SEA Sandor Meszaros closed the forum on the standards of offset printing and improving one’s ability to see print colors correctly.
The Printers Technology Forum is only one of the forums of “Print & Label Cebu”.

The forum continued with a lighter talk, instilling inspiration and hope as Jeff Lee of Ricoh Asia Pacific Pte Ltd shared his life story, consisting of many ups and downs in the print industry.
On a more economic note, speaker John Thye from the Malaysian joint venture of Australia-based DS Chemport went all the way from Kuala Lumpur to Cebu to speak about the relationship of cost cutting and printing.
For specialized printing, several cutting and folding techniques were brought by Nilo Reyes from major industrial services provider, Ferrostaal Philippines Incorporated.
Jeff Lee, then tackled variable data printing (VDP), a form of mass customized digital printing that gives off a conventional offset print feel. It is often used forcustomized greetings and other
