Top 7 Day News Clicks in Print
The biggest story in the print industry this week was the Print21 article on the owner of Express Print & Mail signing for its new premises, two months before he sold the business to his mother, and then put the company that had owned it into liquidation with debts of $4m.
Print21 has also had a torrent of comments on the story, but has not been able to publish many of them. Keep them coming, and we will keep following the story.
Coming in at number two was the Print21 revelation that drupa's biggest single exhibitor, HP, had pulled out of the giant show, along with Kodak. The duo joined several other big names in saying nein to the rescheduled event, citing ongoing concerns over drupa. HP had been due to have the whole of the 8300sqm Hall 17 like last time to show its massive portfolio of presses.
The third-biggest story in the print industry this week was our report on the spike in orders at the nation's biggest trade printer CMYKhub. Dayne Nankervis said the business had been deluged with work since restrictions eased. CMYKhub is now putting on more production shifts in Melbourne and Sydney, and is resuming next-day metro delivery for its most popular products.
