TeX Users Group Conference 2016 … in Pictures!

In July, we were very pleased to host an international delegation of visitors from the TeX Users Group (TUG). They were visiting Toronto for their annual conference and decided to take the trip out to the countryside to visit our charming shop in Erin, Ontario to learn all about how we make our books. Attendees got a glimpse of all of the machines and were even able to do a bit of shopping afterward…
