    U.S. manufacturers stopped using a hazardous chemical in pizza boxes and other food wrappers three years ago -- but it may still be seeping into your takeout food. That's because foreign companies can still use perchlorate and perfluorocarboxylates (PFCs) -- which can cause permanent brain damage in infants -- in paper products that are imported into the United States. On Thursday, a group of consumer and health groups filed a food additive petition with the Food and Drug Administration, asking that the agency pass regulations that would close this loophole and clearly ban the chemicals in…

    Being a retirement plan actuary is tough. Now, I know what you’re thinking: what about all the fame, the glory, being in the #1 profession since…? Well, all that is true of course, but I can tell you that delivering year-end financial results to plan sponsors for most of the past 15 years has been a real drag. And this year-end looks to be no different. Here’s why: Fixed income interest rates are way down. By about 0.75% year-to-date, which will increase most retirement plan liabilities by more than 10%.

We will get to the latter a little further into this post, but let’s start here – during my time in Chicago I didn’t meet or speak to one person who didn’t have, or wasn’t having,…

In the case of GRAPH EXPO, we look back to reflect on the innovations, people and opportunities to move each and every attendees’ (and exhibitors’) business forward. In this year’s reflection I can’t help but tie back to the previous articles I have shared with the Printerverse; what really unites all of the hardware, software, composition, post-composition and mailing vendors?

    Did you know that letterpress printing has been around since around 1440, when Johannes Gutenberg developed a machine that would lock movable letters into place and use a press to transfer ink from the letters onto a sheet of paper? This technique revolutionized the way we share information by allowing books and other documents to be created much more quickly. Since 1440, this technology has evolved beyond this labor intensive method, but we wanted to highlight a little bit more of its history and why some people have still decided to use it today. taken from: Wikimedia How Letterpress Works…

Undaunted by the overall failure of MPS, the industry moved onward and upward to Managed IT Services (MITS). Why just make a…

Most businesses had too many printers for their needs and some when overused, others underutilized.

Costs per page were steadily rising and too much time was being spent managing office printing. MPS – a good concept for certain…

But for paper manufacturers and distributors, it is good news since 3% is substantially less than was expected. Projections were based on an expected widespread increased use and storage of emails and word documents in electronic files instead of paper. Another factor working against paper use is the emphasis on sustainable paper use by utilizing 2-sided printing and reducing unnecessary copies. Neither of these two trends have…
