What do you think of what Saxoprint is doing – and could something similar benefit wide-format PSPs? In case you don’t know, the online printer has launched a portal called ProStudio, a free network that connects small and mid-sized businesses with professional graphic designers. Of course, an increasing number of large-format print companies are adding their own design services, but for those without a design capability, yet seeing the value of extending the creative possibilities of large-format print…?

So, it’s International Print Day on Wednesday (19 October), and Deborah Corn, principal at Print Media Centr and the driving force behind the day, hopes not just PSPs but “but also designers, marketers and entrepreneurs will connect throughout the day, sharing samples and stories of great print - plus ideas, suggestions and opportunities to collaborate.” Will be great to see what comes of the initiative. You can find out more info at www.internationalprintday.org

So, in my last enewsletter I asked for strong female PSP chiefs to come forward and let themselves be known. The response … a deathly silence! Now there’s hiding your light under a bushel, and there being no light to hide. I’ve seen glimpses of brilliance so I know the industry doesn’t suffer from the latter, but can I see more? Please drop me a line if you are – or know of – a good female print chief in this sector.
