fantastic! I fully understood inkjet limitations today

"Inkjet will never fly" -- this is hands down the best Not Frank video I've seen to date. Not that I want to date Not Frank, but you guys at WTT are ever on the cutting (floor) edge.

Bravo! Bring back Not Not Frank! (I guess this means Frank??)

:)

Perhaps inkjet COULD fly if the ink was under very high pressure and the jetting systems were able to produce droplets in the shape of airfoils(?) I'll bet we can get the best engineering minds on this right away... What do you say (Not) Frank?

Joe, I never knew you had a standup comedy background too.

Thanks for the laugh.

I want to see Not Dr Joe

(Not) Frank is way off the mark in his description of "ink jet". "Ink jet" does not refer to shipping ink via jet planes. That's just silly. "Ink jet" refers to mega-droplets (pardon the oxymoron) of ink the size of shipping containers that are enveloped in a gossamar fabric and propelled by solar powered tiny "jets" arrayed strategically on their surfaces. When in shipment, each drop(let?) is drone-like-controlled making it possible for the supplier to "target" each and every customer "on-demand". This ultra efficient delivery system is just another example of how the Mensa minds of the printing industry continue to win the cross-media. Go Print!

Are Printers Investing in Professional Services?

Published: February 13, 2017

Pat McGrew, Director of Production Workflow at InfoTrends, discusses recent InfoTrends research that reveals that printers are not so willing to pay for Professional Services, but rather, expect the vendor to support them with services as part of the purchase. The fact that vendors see services as a growth area reflects a disconnect that will be important to watch play out. She provides advice to both parties.
