It is 14 years since we conducted the first Widthwise survey of the UK/ Northern Ireland’s large-format printers. We’ve probably seen more disruption in the marketplace in the last year than we did in all of those previous ones put together, and 2021 is proving to be ‘the great reset’.  What that means for PSPs in this sector is where we hope to shed some light IN our 2021 Widthwise Report, published alongside this issue. You can download it at https://imagereportsmag.co.uk/widthwise, but here’s a précis of the key findings to whet your appetite.

This has been the year of the ‘great reset’ for so many UK businesses, and the majority of those in the large-format sector are looking towards 2022 with optimism. Aren’t they? This autumn we ran two Round Table discussions - one with print chiefs, and one with suppliers - to find out if much had changed since the Widthwise 2021 poll at the start of the year, and before we kick-off the next one in January. This was the upshot…

As we head into 2021 - and the next Widthwise poll of UK large-format PSPs - now is a good time to reflect on what key print company bosses had to say about doing business in this shape shifting sector at out first ever WIdthwise Live webinar this autumn.
