    i looked at this as new developments in the print industry, basically news not technical troubleshooting information. if it is meant for the latter than gordos blog is definitely a must resource, the first book is also great for flexo, teamflexo is a good site too.

    Gentlemen and fellow Lithographers,


    Yes, Graphic Arts Monthly, The Inland Printer and the American Lithographer, also European printing periodicals which I read at the UK Printing Technical school I attended during the

    late 1950s early 1960s.

    I just voted in Gordo's poll.

    What They Think ?/ Print Planet/ Color Printing Forum/ Press Releases/ Direct from Manufacturers/Printing Impressions/ Asking questions in the pressroom

    Side note...it was pointed out the lack of input to this question. That also can apply to lack of replies to PM when members try to help others. A courteous reply back is just good manners.

    i would say primarily its this board. every so often i will do a search for news in the printing industry and check a few websites. after that its probably visits by vendors. im not in a position where i need to stay on top of all the latests developments anymore. if i was that would alter my results.
