LONG BEACH, Calif., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Since 1999, Epson printers have been used to print color credentials for the Academy of Motion Picture Art and Sciences annual Academy Awards® ceremony, which airs Sunday, March 2. This year, the Epson WorkForce® WF-3520 was utilized due to its reliability and fast print speeds, as it effortlessly printed thousands of credentials behind the scenes.
"For years I've worked with Epson printers to quickly and seamlessly print event credentials, and this year, we used the WorkForce WF-3520 to help get the job done," said Deborah Cahn, EC Solutions. "As the credential vendor for the Oscars, we rely on printing solutions that are reliable and allow us to print thousands of borderless credential passes easily.
