Printing Industries’ 2009 Forecast: Technology, Trends, Tactics
SEWICKLEY, PA—March 4, 2009—The printing industry is facing a period of never-before-seen changes in technology. Printing Industries of America’s 2009 Forecast: Technology, Trends, Tactics addresses these changes and innovations with facts and opinions from trusted experts in the field. This edition-the largest ever at 160 pages-contains exclusive content on industry trends, economic outlooks, and many valuable tidbits of information to assist printers with business growth in 2009 and beyond.
The sheer size of the 2009 Forecast is thanks to a growing base of expert contributors, both new and returning, who offer the latest industry information. It features more than 75 articles ranging from “Hiring Projections in 2009″ to “Press Innovations Deliver More Productivity and Flexibility.” Brand new topics for 2009 include newspaper trends, envelopes, and gravure printing.
There is a plethora of information in the Forecast geared specifically toward a variety of industry roles, including ink, paper, presses, management, and training. The magazine is separated into categories, such as Management Issues and Tactics, PreMedia and Workflow, Lean Manufacturing, Education & Training, and much more. Because of advances in the industry and the growing importance of what happens after a printed product comes off the press, the 2009 Forecast postpress section was expanded to better address finishing, binding, and mailing. In addition, two sections on supplies and materials showcase the trends and innovations that are shaping the world of inks.
