RE: Patrick Henry wrote: "Jan and Gordon have different ideas about how personalization in packaging can be implemented, and by whom. It’s a great debate, but I’m wondering if it misses the point. Yes, we can personalize packaging—but does anybod
 

Patrick Henry on Esko's Jan De Roeck on Packaging Trends:
This is a fascinating exchange (if not clash) of viewpoints from two highly qualified commentators. Just one question from a less expert but no less interested onlooker: Is the real issue the value of personalization in the first place? Variabl

Barb - Great Article! I think you hit it spot on - the PSP industry is still in the middle of a long evolution to transitioning to MSP. One aspect of the value-added services that we see a lot and that wasn't mentioned is the ability for providers to
 

Jennifer Matt on Transitioning Web-to-Print Solutions:
