Latest issue of Print21 out today
The latest issue of the industry's biggest and best-read magazine Print21 is out today, with copies of the Sept/Oct issue dropping on desks of printers around the country.
The 92pp issue is packed with engaging features, written by the people who know print. Senior editors Wayne Robinson and Patrick Howard have been to 15 drupas between them – no other magazine editor has even been to one drupa, emphasising the gulf between Print21 and the rest.
The latest issue contains the industry's biggest PrintEx Review, with all Hot PIck winners featured in a 20pp special guide. Wayne Robinson, editor of the magazine said, "This issue of Print21 provides real value-add information for print business owners and managers. We are proud to present it to the ANZ print industry."
The cover story looks at the rise of trade label printer Guru Labels, with Patrick Howard talking to CEO Nick Lowe. The issue has an in-depth report on LIVE New Frontiers in Packaging Print, the country's forum for packaging print opportunities produced by Print21 and sister publication PKN, which brings together brands, designers, and printers.
The paper sector is under the microscope in a special feature which looks at the changing nature of the industry and the merchants as print continues to evolve.
A special feature on offset printing has all the latest developments from the big five major manufacturers; Heidelberg, manroland, KBA, Komori, and RMGT; we also have a report on the country's first B2 inkjet Jetpress at Ellipsis in Queensland.
The National Print Awards are covered in full with pictures of all the Gold winners, and customer experience consultant Scott Telfer ponders how printers can best use the awards.
Business features include digital printing forecasts, an analysis of what went wrong at Picton Press, and a helpful page on five top tips for foiling. Association chiefs Andrew Macaulay from Australia and Ruth Cobb from New Zealand share the latest updates.
