CHICAGO – About 50 print industry editors and analysts have spent the last two days here taking in a battery of presentations by 12 vendors that will exhibit at Print 09 (Sept. 11-16). "Media Days," the Graphic Arts Show Company's collective name for the program of editorial briefings that it organizes in advance of the Print events, will be extensively covered by WhatTheyThink both in video interviews and in written reports. To lead off, though, here are our thoughts on what the big show appears to hold in store for small and medium print shops, based on what we heard in the presentations.
