Enfocus enjoyed a busy Graphics Canada Expo

Enfocus at Graphics Canada Expo 2019

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.

Keep calm and just get those files to press – here’s how!

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”.

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!

3 print industry trends to watch in 2019

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.
