After years of printing weekly newspaper circulars and direct-mail pieces for a 1,100-store grocery chain, Quad/Graphics Inc. demonstrated its growing prowess in marketing services to win the grocer’s $40 million digital advertising account.

On this episode of The Week that Was, Editor-in-Chief Mark Michelson spoke with Joel Quadracci; Andy Paparozzi explored the reopening of the economy; and PRINTING United 2020 is expected to reunite and revitalize the industry.

Wednesday night, I watched my daughter, Kristina, graduate from eighth grade. Like every other parent there, I was filled with pride and amazed at how the years have melted away. Seems like only yesterday she was dragging her sippy cup and stuffed dog, named Old School, all around the house. What I missed at the office was a late afternoon missive from the Government Publishing Office (GPO), announcing a $750,000 settlement with Quad/Graphics.

Quad/Graphics Inc. and Baltimore-based Vertis Holdings have announced an agreement through which Quad/Graphics will acquire substantially all of the assets comprising Vertis' businesses for $258.5 million, which includes the payment of approximately $88.5 million for current assets that are in excess of normalized working capital requirements.
