Now's the Time to Make the Switch from Offset to Inkjet!

Posted by: Tim Murphy on 8/27/20 1:00 PM

According to Marco Boer of IT Strategies, the pandemic is accelerating the decline of offset presses for two main reasons.

The Challenge of Labor in the Print Industry: Solved

Posted by: Tim Murphy on 3/27/20 3:25 PM

AP Technologies recently hosted a panel to uncover industry leaders’ perspective on the state of the print industry in 2020—you can read about the panel members’ outlook here. One of the themes I noticed from their responses, and have heard myself in my daily conversations with printers, is the challenge of the changing labor force. You may be experiencing it yourself: pressmen are retiring and new help (if you can find it) is inexperienced or even hard to find. As it relates to envelope production, the good news is this industry challenge can have little impact on your business with the iJetColor press for three key reasons.
