Graphics Canada Expo 2019 is here and gone. The event was busy and rewarding. We met some old friends and gained some new ones. We would like to say, “Thank you,” to everyone who came by the booth and took the time to speak with us about their automation needs. It was, as it always is, great to spend time with our technology and solution partners.
When it comes down to it, the daily grind of print production is getting those files to the press faster than you can say “PDF”. That’s doesn’t mean that bottle necks don’t occur at finishing, but a press without a job to run is like a bar that just ran out of beer. Need help keeping those presses fed? The Enfocus product family has your back!
If only your print business could thrive without customers, right? We hear you. Most printers’ customers don’t know a thing about printing, yet they do know they want to receive that picture-perfect job no later than yesterday. In fact, we believe the printing industry as a whole would be much happier with just a little customer education. Don’t know where to start? Just scroll on down!
Who doesn’t like a heart-warming tale this time of year?
Everyone's thinking about it, everyone's speaking about it, yet so far few in the industry have managed to get it right. We’re talking, of course, about print automation. Over the last few years, even the most ambitious printing professionals found themselves facing what felt like a never-ending pursuit of increased efficiency on numerous levels. Automation, it seemed, was not much more than a buzz word or a privilege for the lucky few, i.e. companies with massive budgets. Well, no more!
Whoever says print is dead is in for some shockers next year. With 2018 almost wrapped up and 2019 lurking around the corner, we can confidently say print is clearly still very much alive and kicking, and unlikely to become a thing of the past anytime soon. Better even, it seems the word on the entire print industry’s lips is ‘more’. How can we do more with less? How can we get more for less? The key enablers to solve these challenges, we predict, lie in the three main trends that will shape the print industry in 2019.
