      If you know me, you know I love learning more about the manufacturing process. In fact, one of my favorite TV shows is, “How’s It Made.” Several years ago I was given the opportunity to visit a paper mill and actually got to see paper being manufactured. It is so fascinating to learn that something as simple as “a piece of paper” starts with water, wood pulp and recycled paper. When I saw the video below from Mohawk, a leading paper manufacturer, I watched it several times and then wanted to share it with our customers and friends. So often, the printed page garners attention…

    Or Delete Buttons Ok, so you know the statistics.   You know that on average, the email marketing open rate is 22-23%. The click rate is less than 5 %. If your business is using this as your primary marketing tool, you may believe that even if they don’t open your email, you are keeping the lines of communication open. My E-mail is Going Where? You’re confident that since your email didn’t bounce, and your recipient hasn’t unsubscribed that you are still relevant in their world. If you keep sending and keep reaching out, eventually you might convince the silent 77-78% to open an…

    Amazon Prime Day was’ the shot heard round the world’, what seems to be up for debate, however, is whether or not it was a blank. In case you’re living in a cave (pun intended), check out our summary of Prime Day. Shoppers took to social media early in the day to voice skepticism and frustration at both the amount of discounts and products available. The sale was divided into two parts, deals of the day and lightning deals.

    Life moves fast. Who has time for print? One new campaign is suggesting we all do—even if we aren’t aware of it. Paper and packaging has been in competition with other media forms for quite some time now. Within our industry we know that printed paper and packaging products are viable and sustainable. But the real problem is convincing our customers of that. It comes down to general perceptions. Kids, instead of coloring in a coloring book, would rather play video games on tablets. Sports fans would rather download a virtual game ticket. Vacationers would rather take their e-book to the…

So why did I go without it for such an extended period of time? Transitions Over the last several months, my business has been in transition.

  • Why My Sales Funnel Is On A Pivot

    3 Feb 2015 | 10:26 am
    Image Credit “Sales funnel” is a phrase some folks use to describe their sales process. For most business models, sales is a numbers game. You need to get the word out to lots of people in order for a certain percentage of them to become revenue producing customers. The fact that my sales funnel is on a pivot is a realization that not everyone who enters the sales funnel exits it in the same place. Thanks to my friend Phil Gerbyshak, I’ve started referring to the multiple exit points of the pivoting sales funnel as the revenue escalator. We’ll get to the revenue escalator in a moment…

    Over the last several years, I’ve been sharing my annual plan for business success for the coming year. I start by choosing three words that define where I want to be 12 months from now. Then I turn those words into a visual map; which is the image I’ve included with this post. Before I get further, it’s important to give credit where credit is due. The three words concept comes from my friend Chris Brogan, who has been sharing his three words since 2006. The visualization of those three words is a form of Skecthnotes that I learned from my friend Mike Rohde. It’s been an enlightening…

    Know those days when you just feel “off?” We all have those days; and when I look back over the last several months I’ve found a common thread in those days. In general, my daily routines got messed up one way or another. Routines in your personal and business life allow you to be calm, focused, balanced and centered. Without routines, it’s like you’re being tossed about in the ocean with no life raft. How does a daily routine look? When I’m not traveling, I start each day with a 1.8 mile walk. This typically happens before 7 a.m. and three days a week is…
  • Why Helping Others Is An Awesome Business Strategy

    Jim Raffel
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:30 pm
    Helping others can be a tricky topic because it likely has a different meaning for each of us. For you it might mean donating clothing or other gently used household items to a charitable organization. For others it might mean giving money to a charitable cause. It could also mean giving your time and talents to help others become better people in some way or another. All of those are great definitions of helping others and maybe you engage in all of those activities. But here’s the kicker: Do you consider helping your customers by giving of yourself? You should and here’s why.

    Last month I wrote a blog explaining some misconceptions of the print industry (did you miss it? If so, you can read it here). As these are all big topics in our industry, I’ve decided that for the next few months I will explore each of these topics a little more in depth.

  • #TiniPix: This Week’s Best of the Web

    Christine Alexander
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:13 am
    To Mock-Up or Not? That is the Question. And the answer is yes, absolutely! Particularly if you’re working with larger projects that require multiple paper stocks at varying weights. A 70# offset paper is going to need a smaller spine that an 100# gloss text. By creating a mock-up, you’ll be able to touch and feel the piece to make sure the end result is exactly as you hope it will be. From first hand experience – I can say the mock-up has saved a lot of rework and headaches on several projects. Check out more reasons why you should consider making a dummy from Field Paper.

    KFC is doing an incredible job of merging the digital and print worlds for their customers. A while ago, I shared how they were integrating a tray insert as a wireless keyboard so guests could avoid making their mobile screens a greasy mess. Welp – they have done it again! Connecting via Bluetooth, KFC Canada transformed their iconic bucket of chicken into a photo printer for guests to instantly output memories of a delicious dinner. While their “Memories Bucket” might not keep the grease of your smartphone, it can help you instantly print images from your phone. Catch the…

    Guest Post by Ryan Smith I started my business in Brisbane, Australia as a print manager / printing broker in 2011 – following a surprisingly simple process. I grew up around my parents printing business, and worked for their business for 5 years after finishing high school.

Here is the simple recipe I developed for success as a print manager/printing broker. My focus was offering a broad range of products…

    The Federal Trade Commission's recent report, "Copier Data Security: A Guide for Businesses," makes a succinct, yet powerful, statement sure to get the attention of any organization: "Digital copiers are computers," and organizations should incorporate these devices into their information security plans. Digital copiers, also known as multi-function printers (MFPs – office machines that have the ability to print, scan, copy and fax) have hard drives, embedded firmware and the ability to communicate with other systems on the network.

    It’s been over 400 years since labels were first used. For the first 200 years, not much changed as labels were printed on hand-made paper using relief letterpress type or images cut into wood or metal, with impression pressure applied through a wooden hand press and simple screw mechanism. Labels are now taken for granted though there are billions of labels printed each year.
