    Is it just me? Or are you noticing that, if you’re in the market for a digital press, the questions are different they used to be? The specs of the press remain critical, of course.

This was particularly striking to me a few months back at Graph Expo. In past years, my notepad was full of…

"But maybe I should have put my glasses on before I did that last adjustment on your copier." I then pulled holographic glasses with huge, 3D eyes out of my pocket, and put them on. The woman screamed at the top of her lungs and the entire office went silent, as they turned to see me red-faced and bug-eyed. If not for several women who found this hysterical, my Xerox career would have been brief. Whether…

    Recently I turned 50.  The whole year prior, I spent planning a big party in which I could ring in a new half-century in style. I pondered all the things I could do.  I booked a caterer, thought about the guest list and who might attend.  Then with 6 months to go, started having friends put it on their calendar. I felt ready to announce to the world I was turning the big 5-0.  But then a little more than a week before my birthday, I realized the entire world of big data had already been anticipating me turning half a century old. A week before the big event I received my invitation to…

    “To get your customer to grant you access, it’s imperative that you convey all your information in a series of 20- to 30-second ‘touches’ (via phone, email, and direct mail).” - Jill Konrath, author of SNAP Selling The methods of reaching your targeted audience today are numerous: email, direct mail, web, apps, the list goes on. And when it comes down to it, email isn’t necessarily better than direct mail, nor is Facebook better than LinkedIn.  The key to a successful marketing strategy is not in choosing one channel over another, but garnering a mix of channels to gain a…

    If you asked your employees right now what it’s like to work at your company each day, how would they respond? Do they feel like they work in an environment that supports their goals and ideas? Are they provided the appropriate resources to excel at their jobs? How would they rate their managers? You may wonder why company culture is so important. Only three out of ten U.S. workers are involved in and enthusiastic about their workplace, according to Gallup’s 2013 State of the American Workplace report. That means that 70% of workers are not fully engaged in their workplace. This lack of…

    I’ve been hearing a lot of talk lately about the “resurgence of vinyl”. No, I’m not talking about flooring…I’m talking about music. As in records. And it got me thinking about the parallels between the music industry and the print industry. In 2013, 6.1 million vinyl albums were sold in the United States, up from less than a million in 2005 and 2006. The same trend can be observed in the UK and in Germany, where LP sales have climbed to the highest levels since the early 1990s. Global vinyl sales amounted to $218 million in the past year and it’s all but certain that the…

This recycling stream is certainly not main stream, in fact it’s fair to say that it had never even entered my head even though I have been in the recycling industry for over 10 years. I’m not talking about the recycling of the polystyrene coffee cups from their office or the waste paper or cardboard, no, these are all far too…
