Joe Fedor on Top 5 Priorities for Your Print Business Website:
Jen - I love this topic, and this post... great job. Why are there still so many print business with websites that show a list of equipment and services, and little else? Maybe I just spend more time looking at printing company websites than I do c

Joanne David on "Best Dscoop Ever!":
There is so much that Dscoop11 brings to our industry and specifically to our segment which is commercial printing. Experience shared by Indigo customers is always my favorite and Dscoop is like a busy boulevard in this aspect and Alon Bar-Shany’s wi

Mike Fontana on Harte Hanks Leverages Technology and Direct Mail in the Multi-Channel Customer Journey:
Just came across this summary of how data, pre-press and quality control all come together in satisfying #print clients when we're working on inkjet projects. Agree with Barb Pellow and Harte Hanks that integrating services is crucial. It's where we

Bob Raus on "Best Dscoop Ever!":
Great recap and it was truly an inspiring event. The collaboration, open discussions, community spirit, and information sharing is incredible. I loved the flash mob, speaking with students from ASU, and the energetic learning environment.

Robert Berkeley on The Coolest Packaging Innovation You Never Saw:
As an alternative trigger to UPC (or EAN) codes, QR and the rest, imperceptible watermarks are a fabulous advance. While Digimarc have done a great job developing this technology, partners like Linkz-im.com have taken on creating a platform for manag

Chuck Werninger on Marco Boer from IT Strategies on Production Inkjet Technology Advancements and New Markets:
Exciting forecast, thanks for your insight, Marco. It was great seeing you live at Inkjet Summit and think you're right about the impending explosion. It's exciting to feel the buzz in our industry again!

Bob Raus on The Coolest Packaging Innovation You Never Saw:
Digimarc is a truly disruptive technology. I think it has the potential to replace barcodes and maybe even RFID tags. Wegmans has been testing it on their store brand products for a year or so and HP is using it in the Link product line too.

Bob Raus on HP's Alon Bar-Shany on Growing Digital Printing Business:
Fantastic view of the industry and progress over the past 10 years, and into the future.

Gordon Pritchard on At Last, Nano Is Now as Landa Nanographic Printing Presses Line up for Market Entry :
Thanks for that info. I haven't seen it presented anywhere else. If Landa CMYK covers 80% of the Pantone gamut as stated it seems somewhat uneconomical to add 3 extended process colors, i.e. run a 7 color process to only get an extra 13%. I suppose

Patrick Henry on At Last, Nano Is Now as Landa Nanographic Printing Presses Line up for Market Entry :
Gordon, those are excellent questions, and I'll follow them up in detail at drupa. Here are some brief answers quoted from the presentation materials we were given at the pre-drupa briefing: • Landa CMYK covers 80% of the Pantone gamut: 30% wider

Gordon Pritchard on At Last, Nano Is Now as Landa Nanographic Printing Presses Line up for Market Entry :
The description of gamuts compares Landa's 7/C process to ISO's 4/C process. How does the gamut of Landa's 4/C process compare to ISO's 4/C? Can the nano printed material go into standard paper recycling systems? Can the presswork be de-inked? Nano

Joanne David on Adi Chinai On The Massive Paradigm Shift In Book Printing:
King Printing is a great example of the success one can have with short runs of books as low as 100. Automation is key and Adi said it so well: Auto-magicien as he called it is an ingenious way to describe the flow of PDF book files that are automati

Paul Dombrowski on The Trapped Data of the Print Industry :
Jennifer I conduct ROI analysis for printers considering the purchase of capital equipment (i.e. inkjet presses). For these engagements, printers allow me access to the data that lives within their MIS systems. I construct a financial analysis to

Jennifer Matt on Print MIS Product Spotlight: CoreBridge:
Rhonda - CoreBridge isn't a CRM system. CoreBridge is a Print MIS system. Are you sure you're talking about the right system? Jennifer

Rhonda Slade on Print MIS Product Spotlight: CoreBridge:
Corebridge is the worst CRM I have ever had to deal with. I utilize the events section most of the time, and it is unorganized, it is not user friendly, and it is not organized for sales driven companies. You have to go through multiple pages to get
