"It's easy to say you have to change to survive," says Romano. "But that's not an easy thing for an established business to actually do. But 40+-year-oldCustomXM has been successful at integrating new media options for customers. It wasn't a clear path, and it was easy to go in some wrong directions, but being curious and inquisitive and willing to and try new things can pay great dividends in today's challenging print market. Our speaker is a true thought leader in this industry."

Romano was joined by:

  • Paul Strack, President of CustomXM

Mr. Strack explained how he and his company availed themselves of new communications tools such as social media, QR codes, augmented reality-and even good-old-fashioned face-to-face networking-to help customers navigate this landscape and integrate these technologies with print, while at the same time taking his own business beyond print, developing a symbiosis among old and new media.
