  • Do You Know Enough to Succeed?

    Do You Know Enough to Succeed?

    By Noel Ward, Editor@Large

    In this age of rapidly evolving technology knowledge can make the difference between success and mediocrity…or even failure. This goes way beyond knowing your customers and the markets you serve. These days, that stuff just lets you put up a sign and open the front door, and it’s not enough. You also have to be conversant on at least some of the technology that is making your business valuable to your customers.

    Some of this is the entry-level...

  • Does Color Really Make a Difference?

    Does Color Really Make a Difference?

    by Noel Ward, Editor@Large

    Henry Ford used to say the Model T came in any color you wanted as long as it was black.

    That was pretty much how purveyors (and buyers) of digital presses and copiers thought until the mid-1990s. Toner was all black all the time. Then, along came a couple of presses that delivered color, but they were less than reliable and the toner from one could sometimes be rubbed off a print with a pencil eraser. Not exactly what customers were looking for....

  • Have You Been Corrugated Lately?

    Have You Been Corrugated Lately?

    By Noel Ward, Editor@Large

    On any given week one news source or another runs a story about Amazon. The stories go on and on about the company’s outsized influence, its enormous market capitalization, the impact its facilities have on real estate values, local infrastructure, and more. They all miss one thing: Amazon’s indelible impact on corrugated packaging.

    Corrugated containers are simply the most practical way to ship a much of Amazon’s products, and cardboard—the...

    PitStop Pro 19 Delivers the Tools Users Asked For
    The PDF editing platform we know as PitStop Pro has become a ubiquitous industry standard since it was introduced in 1993, embedded in the commercial printing industry like a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. As the dominant preflight product, PitStop provides deep quality control and editing for PDF printing workflows. Over the decades, Enfocus has continued to develop new functionality, moving steadily toward more and more automation. Each...

    Follow the Money with an Automated Workflow

    By Noel Ward, Editor@Large, PrintPlanet.com


    What is time worth?

    This means your time or that of your CSRs, prepress technicians, press and finishing equipment operators, and even the people in shipping. What is their time worth, and how do you translate those hours into payroll, the dollars you keep in your operating account, and profitability?

    Mounting competitive pressures and customer expectations for fast turnarounds and competitive prices rising...

    What You Missed

    By Noel Ward, Editor@Large


    If you have medium- to large-size Ricoh presses and printers and didn’t go—and you probably did get an invitation—you missed an opportunity to learn how to make your operation more efficient and profitable.

    I’m talking about Ricoh Interact 2019, held June 5th and 6th in Denver, the second full-scale version of the company’s customer-oriented event that was all about making one’s business work better and not about prying money out of...

  • A Duplo Upgrade As A Weapon Against Commoditization

    A Duplo Upgrade As A Weapon Against Commoditization

    Few observers of the commercial print industry have missed the fact that the industry now changes at hyper speed, even as it continues to consolidate. These days, most of these technology innovations fall under the aegis of automation, as efficiency becomes ever more critical to competitiveness. For better or worse, the machines keep getting smarter and taking on more of the workload as skilled operators become harder to find.

    Change is generally good – especially when it improves...

  • Green Light For Green Button Laminators at the 2019 BindRite Conference

    Green Light For Green Button Laminators at the 2019 BindRite Conference

    Al Boese, Executive Director and longtime spirit guide of the BindRite Dealers Association, prefers the term “Green Button Technology” to automation.

    “It tells a better story,” explains Boese. Al likes stories and he is good at telling them. As a longtime player in the post print segment, Boese has enjoyed a front row seat as digital technology transformed finishing and laminating equipment.

    “In my mind, GBT originated in photocopying in the early 1970’s and...

  • Learn to do Something That Can Kill You

    Learn to do Something That Can Kill You

    by Noel Ward, Editor @ Large

    Unlike many industry events there was no sense of déjà vu when coming to the third edition of Xeikon’s Café in North America. Every one of these events has been an improvement from the one before and the level of value keeps increasing. Why anyone who has or is considering a Xeikon digital press or ThermoflexX plate maker would not be at this event is mystifying. It’s one of the poster children for how vendor-sponsored events should be run.
