    Spicers has certainly been though the mill over the past decade, but since coming on board David Martin has steadied the ship, and now a sale to Japanese giant KPP should provide further stability, and more guarantee of supply to local printers.

    The Bureau of Stats is ploughing on with its online census strategy, despite the unbridled debacle that occurred last time out. Be interesting to see how it goes this time, and what the take up will be, given the previous experience, and the growing concerns with data privacy.

    We’re back, and wishing Happy New Year to all in the ANZ print industries from the team here at Print21. Let’s hope it is although with another Federal election due soon, Donald Trump still at the helm of the western world, and a crumbling Aussie batting line-up the portents could be better.

    Printers around the country will be as perplexed as those in Perth at the outcome of the Picton Press saga. It seems the company in question has had a virtual free ride when it comes to tax and paper payments.

    As the year draws to a close, the team here at Print21 note that a theme of the year is print businesses investing in new technology and in their own brand, just like Luminar, recreating themselves to meet the demands of the new era. Great to see.

    Marketing is not something that print businesses have historically focused on, but in a world with multiple mixed messages bombarding us every day getting your proposition in front of the people that count has never been more necessary. Not every printer could afford to employ one like IVE has, but using marketing agencies could be a worthwhile investment.

  • Print21 Breaking News! $21.6 million bribery fine. Wednesday 27 November 2018

    Corruption is never a acceptable way of doing business especially when it comes from trusted and prestigious organisations. Note Printing Australia and Securency were fined a massive $21.6 million for bribery and corruption. The case was dogged by bumbling and blunders by the regulators. It’s not good enough.

    There will be no relief from the inexorable rise in paper prices next year. The merchants have done a great job in holding back what they can, but they can only do so much. With input costs on the rise, and the market baulking at increased sell costs, process automation and increased efficiency remain the keys to absorbing the rises.

    Congratulations to Griffin Press on its new $56m four-year contract with Penguin Random House, looks like the investment in the digital book line – said to be the world’s most advanced at the time – is paying off.

     

    Commiserations to unsecured creditors of failed print companies, especially those who then see a version of that company continue trading, to say it is galling is an understatement. Watch this space for updates.

  • Print21 newsletter – Issue 1061 WEEKEND SPECIAL

    As the world moves into what was once the realm of sci-fi, robots are beginning to enter the printing industry. I have been to two modern plants recently where robots are performing great jobs on what was previously repetitive backbreaking work prone to mistakes. Great to see on many levels – are you considering them?
