    Printing Industry Standards/Dealer Ethics/Disclosures

    Before you go to an expensive lawyerI hope you talk to the dealer. Perhaps you can work something out with them. If not then tell them that you have no other recourse but legal action.

    Buying Local

    I wonder if the buyer knows what's going on. The printer that I spoke to kept his offshoring of print a secret.

    Direct Mail: An Incredible Tool in a Competitive Environment

    Neenah’s Rethink Everything Project Creates Tactile Packaging

    Plastics in packaging is a massive problem. It would have been interesting to see these “creatives” come up with innovative designs that use (Neenah) paper to replace plastics in actual shelf destined product packaging instead of simply designing complicated gatefolds (which is nothing new) and...

    Which dot shape?

    Which dot shape?

    Absolutely. That depends of the design of the FM screen. Some are grainy - others not. The good thing about the Euclidean is that the dot shape, except for 50% tint, is the same for all screen angles and frequencies. And the dot is non-directional so it is less affected by press problems...
