We start by looking at the opportunities being offered to the print industry through relaxations of Covid restrictions in NSW and Victoria, then consider the sectors likely to see increases in demand such as commercial land wide format printing. This leads to a discussion of IVE investing in wide format, what it means for the rest of us as Heidelberg experiences increased global orders for equipment, and why the rise of fibre-based packaging will continue.

Returning to Covid, the discussion looks at the varying approaches to mandatory vaccination of print industry workers around the country and the confusion about determining what is a mandatory worker in Victoria. After this, we move on to the shipping crisis and its impact on prices in the industry, then consider the future of Ovato's Queensland after the owner sold the premises.

We wrap up the episode by noting the environmental credentials of the print industry, particularly with its use of renewable materials, Epson being rated the world's number one sustainable company by Forbes Magazine, Two Sides calling out organisations for greenwashing.
