The Printing Impressions Group announces the launch of Printing's Best Blogs (PrintingsBestBlogs.com), a handy Website that brings leading blogs of interest to graphic arts professionals together in one place. Topic areas addressed by the postings include Sales & Marketing, Business Management, Print Production, Mailing/Postal, Cross-Media, and much more.
The site features bloggers from the Printing Impressions (PIworld.com), In-Plant Graphics and packagePRINTING magazine Websites, supplemented by third-party blogs aggregated from sources such as industry associations, independent consultants and pundits, and other stakeholders.
Blogs are selected for their relevance to the printing and allied industries, combined with frequency of posting. The site is updated at regular intervals throughout the day, but the individual bloggers have posting schedules ranging from several times a week to a minimum of monthly postings.
"We realize that today's graphic arts professionals have limited time to search the Web for relevant content that will help them perform their jobs more effectively and stay abreast of critical industry information and trends," says Mark Michelson, editor-in-chief of Printing Impressions. "By presenting our industry's best bloggers all together, in a single, easy-to-navigate Website, printing industry professionals can quickly find blogs of interest.
"Just as our ink-on-paper magazines geared toward commercial, in-plant and package printers have become the go-to sources for pertinent news and information over these many years, we have maintained that same, trusted role for our audiences within the world of electronic communications," Michelson adds.
