    I’ve received sales approaches from over 1,400 printing companies over the years Sadly, many of them were very uninspiring. In fact, I estimate that 98% of them sounded pretty much exactly the same. Most of them focused on service, quality and competitive pricing. The trouble is, when a buyer hears so many sales pitches like this, they fail to make any impact. Over time, they all start to sound the same. Then, the buyer's decision comes down to price. There's a good reason why so many salespeople use an approach like this This sort of sales message is a “one size fits all” approach. It…

    Recycling, is noble to our environment, the scale does not matter as the act itself. Well, these printing activities produce some waste in the process. Ink cartridges get spent and the empty plastic cases are left behind. With all the campaigns about the environment, everyone is familiar with the statistics and what they lead to. So, how do we get responsible with the waste ink cartridges? There are several convenient methods through which we could play our role in the recycling schemes. One of these ways is using your cartridges supplier as an option. How? The same way the deliveries are…

    Toner cartridges, which are components of a laser printer, make the image on the printer paper using a powdery substance called the toner powder. The toner powder is a mixture of coloring agents, carbon black and small plastic particles which are transferred and fused onto the paper during the print run with the help of a drum unit and a fuser unit. Let us now dive into the details. There are six distinct processes involved in producing a laser-printed page using a standard laser printer. The procedure begins when the Primary Charge Roller (PCR) applies an uniform negative charge onto the…

  • Colour optimization: Printing black as Inkjet black on Epson 9900

    We have a new Epson 9900 being driven by Fiery XF. I have been playing with things here and there. I was looking at the colour optimization in the RIP. It has a few options: Clean colours, Black as inkjet black, Clean colors and black text as inked black, clean colors + black text and images as inkjet black If I print a 100% black, it comes out somewhat muted. It is black, but not popping obviously like a rich black would. So I turned on the "black as inkjet black" and it really improved the 100%, made it look like a rich black, came out very nice. Any negatives to running this way?

  • US | Simon Says: Women's History Month - Cents and Sensibility

    Tami Simon JD
    31 Mar 2015 | 7:16 am
    One of the most famous US advertising campaigns kicked off in 1968, marketing Virginia Slim cigarettes to young professional women with the tagline – “You’ve come a long way, baby.” Using images of independent, self-confident women, the campaign connected with the emerging women’s movement of the 60’s and 70’s that took aim at gender stereotypes. Think of what’s changed since those ads first aired. Here are just a few of the milestones. Newspapers no longer list job ads by gender.

According to a research of Opinion Matters firm, 72% of U.S. businesses still rely on paper-based faxing. So, no matter the size of the company, there are standard fax machines and no security nearby. And do you know that nearly half of U.S. office workers admit to reading a document sitting on a fax machine intended for someone else?

    Acknowledging the Importance of Heatproof Labels When it comes to packaging, some types of items come with pretty standard requirements – most food products, for example – whereas others have more specific needs, such as waterproof or heatproof labels. For instance, bath and body product labels need to be able to withstand contact with water and oils, while the stickers on candles must hold up to heat and be flame-resistant. As well as fulfilling practical concerns, custom labels and stickers need to be vibrant and high-quality in order to catch the attention of consumers. Strike…

    Gina Danner
    22 Oct 2014 | 11:44 am
    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…

    This post was contributed by Ricardo Roman, VP of Strategic Alliances and Caliper Sports, Caliper. For more information about the National Buying Power Program with Caliper, visit www.printing.org/caliper. Managers and leaders share many similar qualities, but the performance of a manager carries far fewer risks than the performance of a leader. In addition, there seems to be a difference in the underlying motivational characteristics of these two groups.

    By Roberto Blake “Presentation isn’t everything, it’s the only thing…” If you’ve never heard that quote before, it’s because it belongs to me. Your customers won’t get far enough to know whether your website or product works properly, fits their needs or has a great user experience, if they are immediately turned off by the packaging. Visual Branding and Design is something you should never underestimate. Form matters just as much as function and from a sales and marketing standpoint it matter more. In the same sense that you would not show up to a meeting or a sales pitch…

    By Joanne Gore I first heard about LinkedIn around the time it was founded, back in 2003. At the time, I was working as a Marketing Manager for an Internet Incubator. The Internet was a pretty new thing and everyone was caught up in the .dot com era. It didn’t take long for that bubble to burst. Many companies did not survive, including my employer. LinkedIn, however, thrived. There was no twitter. No Instagram. No Facebook. LinkedIn WAS social media…we just didn’t know it yet.

    Dear Marketers, Before I begin, I want to make a confession. I was born on the early side of Generation Y. Having been born in 1983, you might go so far as to say I am on the cusp. Whatever it may be and ignoring for a moment the fact that my step kids think I’m ancient, I strongly consider myself to be a millennial. I mean, DUH, I did grow up in the 90s and yes, in case you are dying to know, I do remember when cell phones were the size of cracker boxes, AOL chat rooms were the next best thing and, yes, it really was in style to roll one pant leg up.

  • How Does a Toner Cartridge Work?

    kyle
    18 Mar 2015 | 4:35 am
    Toner cartridges, which are components of a laser printer, make the image on the printer paper using a powdery substance called the toner powder. The toner powder is a mixture of coloring agents, carbon black and small plastic particles which are transferred and fused onto the paper during the print run with the help of a drum unit and a fuser unit. Let us now dive into the details. There are six distinct processes involved in producing a laser-printed page using a standard laser printer. The procedure begins when the Primary Charge Roller (PCR) applies an uniform negative charge onto the…
  • How an Ink Cartridge Works

    kyle
    9 Mar 2015 | 4:23 am
    An ink cartridge is found in the inkjet printer. Its main purpose is to store the ink that is displayed on paper during the printing process. Each cartridge has one or more reservoir for the ink. The ability of the cartridge to store ink depends on the printer itself. Most printers use a thermal inkjet that contains a heating element. The cartridges have petitions that hold a tiny metal plate mainly used as a resistor. The printer gives a signal that allows a small amount of current to flow through the resistor metal. This makes it warm enough to be able to vaporize the ink into a tiny bubble…

    Uncoated paper is what you typically see used in paperback novels and newspapers. This type absorbs ink like a sponge, making the image printed on it appear slightly dull. When ink is printed on a standard uncoated label stock, the halftone dots grow and become more visible. Hence, the quality of the image suffers. However, there are premium uncoated paper stocks, too. Here’s an infographic that compares Coated vs Uncoated Direct Thermal Label Printing.

    This is always a great question to ask before putting down 200K to replace all your printers. We would always want you to get what you need NOW, which we usually find to be very different from what your business needed the last time you bought printers. Not only business volumes, but changing technology and requirements means a straight-up replacement might not be the best option for you.

Unfortunately, the brilliant architect was just able to complete around 25 percent of Church’s construction. Worked slowed down, and experts started creating handcrafted…

    Photo credit Danielle Elder via Flickr Creative Commons license Skin is the largest organ in the human body, and given the fact that skin is wholly responsible for tactile (touch) sensations, it’s a wonder that so many marketing efforts completely ignore the influence skin’s sensory experience has on decision-making. Most marketing aims to appeal to the eyes first, then the ears; yet these organs pale in proportion to the skin in terms of surface area and body weight. Recent research, however, has fueled new marketing tactics that seek to take advantage of physical touch in order to…
