Drupa bound

Given that it’s a Bank Holiday on Monday this is the last newsletter I’ll send out before I get to Drupa. If I don’t see you there, drop me a line on your return to let me know if anything in particular caught your eye.

Does the supply chain meet your demands?

How do you decide on which print products to invest in? Do you talk directly to the manufacturer, distributor, reseller? Do you attend open houses? Do you feel your questions, concerns and development comments are taken seriously? A lot of questions I know, but I’m trying to get a rounded picture of where the supply chain could be strengthened and better serve the PSP.

Are you a groupie?

A group of people known as 111 Collectiff has formed Creatiff – a networking/support membership club where those from all sorts of media related sectors can mingle. Once a very myopic industry, print it seems is recognising the benefits of better interaction, so it will be interesting to see what you make of this – let me know!

Take a look at us

The latest BPIF ‘Printing Outlook’ survey might indicate that the industry as a whole had a wobbly start to the year in terms of output levels, but if investment is anything to go by that’s no reflection on the state of play in the wide-format inkjet sector. Perhaps the players in other areas of print should take lessons from this one, which continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible with print.

Know your competition

Yipee – it’s here! The Widthwise Report 2016 has been printed and is also now online. If you are a registered reader of Image Reports you will already have received what is the ninth annual report on the state of the UK and Ireland’s large-format digital inkjet print sector.
