Press release from the issuing company
Libertyville, IL -- June 6, 2002 -- Innes Publishing, which publishes several leading graphic arts related magazines, including High Volume Printing, In-Plant Printer, Instant & Small Commercial Printer and the Binding Edge, recently has named well-known in-plant authority, Jack Klasnic, as editor of In-Plant Printer. Known to many as "the dean of in-plant consultants," Klasnic brings more than 35 years of printing industry experience, most of which has been concentrated on the special requirements of in-house print and reproduction departments. He has consulted with numerous in-plants in the United States, Canada and Australia.
Klasnic earned a degree in printing management from Carnegie Mellon University and a degree in Accounting from the University of Baltimore. He spent 15 years in key management positions within graphic arts companies before becoming a full-time consultant. He is chairman of the Klasnic Group, an international consulting organization that specializes in evaluating in-plant and commercial printing organizations to improve efficiencies and increase value. He is a frequent speaker at several printing industry trade shows and seminars, including PRINT, GRAPH EXPO, Intl. Publishing Management Assn. (IPMA) conference and international in-plant conferences.
Klasnic has written several books, including In-Plant Printing Handbook, which the IPMA termed the "Industry Bible," Commercial Printing Handbook and How To Kill An In-Plant, a 48–page booklet that is available on IPMA’s Web site. He currently is working on his next book, Organization Reprographics.
"We are extremely pleased to have Jack assume the editor role for In-Plant Printer," says Innes Publishing president Mary Ellin Innes. "His intimate knowledge of in-plants and his widely known, highly regarded reputation among in-plant managers as the ‘dean of in-plant consultants’ makes Jack the ideal choice to direct this specialized trade publication. If anyone knows in-plants, it’s Jack Klasnic."
In-Plant Printer magazine is read by managers, directors, supervisors and corporate executives responsible for creative and design, publishing and printing services involved in corporate communications in a variety of businesses and industries. IPP’s editorial focuses on those issues critical to the corporate printing services manager, and the graphic and creative services director — improving quality, lowering costs, implementing quality control procedures, designing for various print and nonprofit processes, and justifying the in-plant’s existence.
