Jennifer Matt on Collaborative Commerce: The Necessary Evolution of Web-to-Print:
This is not a binary choice: human touch or self-service but providing both options. You might feel more comfortable with the human touch but this isn't about what you're comfortable with its about the changes in customer's preference. Human touc
 

John Henry on Collaborative Commerce: The Necessary Evolution of Web-to-Print:

Carina Karlsson on Collaborative Commerce: The Necessary Evolution of Web-to-Print:
Really like this article. With only fixed products, as in todays web solutions, we are missing out on the most valuable thing with print, the possibility to be unique. There are a million different ways, within each printing company, to produce somet

Andy McCourt on Frank Talks Color Management (In a Purple Shirt):
Hello Frank, I hope the Koala I gave you at Ipex is behaving itself and not 100% Y; 5% M-ing itself all over. You are so right colour management is a mess - because it's meant to be. The only thing that satisfies customers is to have it under control

@James Kohler RE: "don't forget to include and they usually do, the paper manufactures which can play a big part in how an images looks on paper." I have given presentation on printing processes at various paper manufacturer conferences (e.g. TAPP
 

Gordon Pritchard on Frank Talks Color Management (In a Purple Shirt):
@John Clifford & @John Rahill A standard can only be a standard if the majority of printers can meet it under reasonable manufacturing conditions. It does not represent the "best" that is possible. Your statement: "So clients want different re
 

James Kohler on Frank Talks Color Management (In a Purple Shirt):

Ken Stewart on Why Most Technology Demonstrations Suck!:
Jennifer, it's great to see someone else publish on this exact topic. I found your video quite on point, and you thought of a few points I did not. I had some similar thoughts in my own post... Your Software Demo is Killing Me! where I challeng
 

John Clifford on Frank Talks Color Management (In a Purple Shirt):
@John Rahill, So there can be color that is better than the standard? Then why isn't that the standard. How can one printer print a color "better" than another printer? So clients want different results? Does that mean that some want the color
 

Christoph Degel on Frank Talks Color Management (In a Purple Shirt):
I attended the colour-management-symposium several times. I think it comes close to a summit especially since vendors, printers and publishing-experts come together to talk and to exchange opinions. http://www.fogra.org/en/fogra-events/colour-mana

"We have met the enemy, and they is us" Pogo had it right. The tools have never been better! The holy grain is attainable if we reach for it.
 

John Rahill on Frank Talks Color Management (In a Purple Shirt):
I don't think we will ever get people to print to one standard for every job. If we did, there would be little to no difference in the output - thus no competition. If you talk to print shop owners, they want an edge on their competition...not just a

Henry Freedman on Frank Talks Color Management (In a Purple Shirt):
So to properly address this topic one needs to define the results of the color printing and therefor define the acceptance of the color imagery grading the results for the color management process. This has recently been invented and just patented
 

John Clifford on Frank Talks Color Management (In a Purple Shirt):
And then how do we roll it out to those of us who are trying to teach it? As the conversation between Dov and I showed, Time, Inc. STILL asks for all their ads to be PDF/X-1a. NO Color Management. How do I tell students to prepare their work? I'd
