For those in the magazine and catalog printing and publishing segments, the past year has been nothing short of dynamic.
Kappa Media, and its controlling Member Nicholas Karabots, have announced the acquisition of the remaining partnership interest of Vanguard Graphics from Steve Rossi, who is retiring. As of August 31, 2017, Kappa and one of its affiliates will have full ownership of Vanguard. Kappa purchased its original ownership stake in the company in April 2016.
The Top 20 Magazine Printers ranking has returned for the third year since its revival in 2014. The ranking, which lists leading printers in the U.S. and Canada based on revenue earned in the magazine sector, is intended to serve magazine publishers as they assess their printing needs and the landscape of potential printing partners.
Due to popular demand, Publishing Executive revived its ranking of the Top 20 Magazine Printers.
