Great interview, Cary & Paul. I especially like your specific points:
1. After 100 years of Hudson Printing, the courageous and exciting strategy to "Reinvent Print", [GREAT Business Card!]
2. The great Results and opportunities of "offset transfer" in moving conventional work in the digital direction.
ROCK ON. Thank you for sharing...and THANK YOU for your industry Leadership in disrupting and reinventing print.
-Ron & GPA

Paul's thoughts seem to only focus on hardware specifications - just like the majority of printers who list their hardware on their websites. That is hardly innovative. Most print buyers are not that interested or savvy about what is used to print their jobs anyway. The video actually raises in my mind the question of what is Hudson Printing doing that is innovative? Using X press instead of Y press doesn't do it.

Gordon, you should read the article that goes with this video before you make judgments ...

 

By Gordon Pritchard on Apr 16, 2014

Thanks for that, I missed the article.

 

By Eric Vessels on Apr 16, 2014

We should have linked the article to the video. Fixed the glitch.

 

By Paul Gardner on Apr 16, 2014

Thanks for the Interest Gordon! And for the clarifications Eric and Cary.

Even a deep dive on the Hudson Printing web site will yield very little information about equipment.

ps - we're proud to have GPA as a partner in our journey of Reinvention.
