We can’t say for sure, but this may have been the first time the 50th anniversary of a company was ever celebrated at the Art Institute of Chicago amid most all of America’s favorite things all at the same time.
Well over 300 guests that included customers, partners, vendors, printing trade publishers, international VIPs plus SCREEN management and staff, saw to it that SCREEN America’s 50th year in business was observed in fun, tasty and tasteful style.
The walls of the Modern Wing of the Art Institute of Chicago were dramatically lighted in shades of SCREEN blue and anniversary gold as guests enjoyed tours of the European Modern Art and Contemporary Galleries, while tapping their feet to the pleasing sound of a local jazz quintet.
The culinary needs of the gathering were fully satiated with delightful hors d’ouevres, numerous entrees and desserts that followed brief comments by key executives who acknowledged the important role the guests (and those unable to attend) played in helping SCREEN Americas reach the noteworthy milestone.
Large graphics of SCREEN’s 50th anniversary logo served as the backdrop for celebrity/award style photographs taken of guests to preserve the special occasion. And as guests later departed the elegant affair, they were sent gently into the night with gift boxes of artisan-made gourmet chocolates.
Both SCREEN America’s management and executives from SCREEN’s corporate offices in Kyoto, Japan, express their sincere gratitude to all friends of SCREEN, whether able to attend the gala or not, for their support over the company’s 50 years of success.

SCREEN’s magic number appears to have been 1500, as the industry’s leading, high-speed production inkjet press manufacturer reached that milestone achievement with the sale of the company’s 1500th Truepress Jet 520 engine worldwide to new customer, Sarasota, Florida-based, Access Direct Mail.
Access Direct Mail (Access DMI), a Florida-based, mail solutions company is set to diversify and further grow its operation with the purchase of its very first roll-fed, inkjet press — SCREEN’s flagship Truepress Jet520HD.
