    While brands have been remarkably successful at feeding universal human drives, such as the desire for adventure, power or status, sustainability has not been seeing the same success in its messaging. What sustainability needs to create the same impact is a similar level of insight into the best way to embrace the full range of human emotions. Because it's human emotion that's at the heart of what motivates us.

    When I began my career in this industry as a Graphic Designer, I spent a lot of that time as a typesetter. This was for a variety of reasons: I had recently moved from Montreal and was one of very few bilingual (French/English) typesetters in the city I knew how to use AM Varityper and Comp Set phototypesetting machines (pictured here) I could type….touch type…really fast I was passionate about typography There have been a lot of changes in the industry, but none as significant (in my humble opinion) as the (lost?) art of typography.

    I am familiar with the offset world but transitioning to flexo. We rarely have to adjust images. How do flexo prepress operators handle image editing? Is it a manual process where the minimum dot (and abrupt transitions) is adjusted in Photoshop, or are plugins such as Esko's flex tools used? Same thing for stray dots? Or are you still laughing because I don't know what I'm asking? :)

    What’s the Price is an original article from: M-bossed.com — A media blog. ©2009 Ryan McAbee || A few projects have made me think about pricing strategies of late which lead me to think about the way PSPs price their wares. Having been in over a 150 print shops, I have seen many methods from the ‘My gut tells me $X’ to very sophisticated calculations churned out of a print management system (MIS). Most print management systems use the cost plus method method to calculate price. This method adds up the costs, as defined by the PSP, for all materials and processes involved…

    A great read from a past edition of Connect magazine. Things have changed in the buyer’s journey and the time to adapt is now. It is more important than ever before that marketing and sales work together seamlessly. First, the bad news: The sales cycle still requires a lot of time and money. Speaker and marketing and sales consultant M.H. (Mac) McIntosh says a study conducted a decade ago holds true today: It takes about five calls to close one sale and $350 or more per call in resources/man hours to make it happen. And it still requires finding leads, convincing them to meet, qualifying,…

    Have you ever watched a cruise ship come into dock? If you have, maybe you noticed those huge ropes that the crew uses to tie down the vessel. These bowlines are as thick as your arm, and they’re pretty heavy. There’s a big potential problem when you’re dealing with ropes of that size. You need to get the rope safely all the way from the bow of the ship, which is about ten stories above the water line, to someone who’s standing down on the pier. There’s really no way to do it … unless you use what the sailors call a “Monkey’s Paw”. The monkey’s paw knot is most often…
  • Spray and Pray is Dying

    Tom Harvey
    15 Jul 2014 | 7:10 am
    We have a term around here called “spray and pray”. It applies to the strategy of blasting out direct mail to a large group of recipients with no special targeting (spray) and then hoping that some of the folks that got the piece are actually interested in the offer (pray). While it mostly applies to direct mail here, the same term could be applied to other channels. Essentially the “blast” concept without targeting. In the direct mail channel some organizations have relied on this method of marketing for so long, they can’t imagine doing anything different. It can be scary…

Not everyone in the group will have the same pace on the trail, and that can be disconcerting to some at different points in the hike. This is not unlike a business which has those with an unfettered sense of urgency working alongside those that prefer to plod along more methodically.

Quitting is something you do when you are scared of failure or just don’t want to do whatever it is you should be doing because it’s difficult. Turning back is something you do when conditions indicate there is real peril in proceeding on your current path. Typically when you turn back you have every intention of returning to someday complete the journey or task. When you quit, there is no plan to return.
