Greetings my print brethren and sisteren. I'm working on an article for an upcoming issue of Printing Impressions
that examines commercial printers who have diversified into package printing (including labels). I'm looking for a couple/three interview subjects willing to discuss their experiences, good and bad, and share what they've learned along the way.
For years we've heard pundits extolling the virtues of commercial printers diversifying into packaging work, but from where I sit, there hasn't been a huge migration. Perhaps it's a result of the learning curve, not to mention the capex commitment necessary to become a formidable player. Regardless, we want to tell the stories of those who have recently (last five or so years) ventured down this road.
If you're interested, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
with some basic info, and I will reach out to you. I may not be able to accommodate everyone if there is a large rash of responses, but I will try to use as many of you as possible. In honor of baseball season kicking off this weekend, any printers from Cincinnati (home of my beloved Reds) will be automatically included in the article and treated like royalty! Or at least bat leadoff in the article.
