This looks like a great resource for attracting younger people into a career in the print industry. I can't seem to find a link to the "Adventures in Print" poster. Any chance you can post a link to it here?

Also, thanks for the great information you shared during the show! It's always a pleasure to learn from you.

Thanks for creating more great tools we can share with our high school students and their guidance counselors! Keep up the great work, I hope other printers will use the tools you're creating!

Vendors who were planning to introduce new technologies in Dusseldorf will now use fall events like Brand Print America and PRINTING United to do so—or, like HP, host their own virtual events.

Now we know the coronavirus situation is really serious: Warren Werbitt does not want to talk about print. This is an unprecedented time, and Warren calls for everyone to work together, regardless of politics, race, color, religion, etc., to help combat a virus that has no boundaries.
