The July August issue of the country's biggest print industry magazine Print21 is being mailed this week, with the issue jam-packed with valuable print business insight, analysis, and information.
The July August issue contains the industry's largest and most comprehensive PrintEx Preview, with technology highlights and the full forum programme on the pages.
Cover story focuses on industry supplier Starleaton, celebrating 40 years in business, with CEO Ben Eaton sharing on the ethics of good business.
Editor-at-large Patrick Howard interviews Rod Dawson, CEO of Southern Colour, one of the largest and most progressive print businesses in the country, who provides real insight into the running of a modern print company.
There is a full preview of Print21 + PKN LIVE New Frontiers in Packaging Print, the annual forum presenting emerging opportunities for printers either in packaging or looking to enter the market.
Also on packaging, Print21 July August has a business intelligence report from research analysts Smithers Pira into opportunities in smart packaging print.
For offset printers, the latest issue looks at UV printing, which has gained a strong following – especially since the introduction of LED lights, which require a fraction of the power of the old mercury vapour.
Our supplier focus in this issue is Screen, which has an inkjet continuous feed printer that is now accredited as printing offset quality.
In the wide format world, Professor Paul Lindstrom tells us how to apply colour management in the booming world of interiors. We are also at the opening of the Océ Customer Experience Centre, and we talk with Dean Wright from ADS on his new EFI Vutek LX3 Pro.
In less than a year we will be traipsing the halls of drupa. The July August issue of Print21 has the first of the drupa expert articles, and a look at the 3D drupa.
Add in the regular columns from the CEO's of PIAA and PrintNZ, plus Scott Telfer's customer experience focus, and the July August issue of Print21 offers the owners and managers of print businesses a great package, produced by the people who know print.
