From the Editor: September 2020 ENews

Hello, everyone! Welcome to September! I hope you’re reading this with a pumpkin spice latte in your hand while you enjoy the first chilly days of fall. This year hasn’t been a lot of fun, but there’s something comforting in feeling the temperature drop and opening all the windows in the house to let a fresh breeze in. My plans for the weekend include a big pot of chili on the stove and football games on TV. (Yes, I know it will be almost 80 degrees in Kansas this weekend… stop judging me!)

Back in 2015, we combined two magazines – The Binding Edge and InsideFinishing – to create PostPress. The industry was consolidating, with more crossover as binders and finishers added equipment to their facilities that took them into new markets and created new opportunities. Commercial printers also dipped toes into binding and finishing technologies, and more graphic designers and printers were coming to our pages to see what was possible in print decoration, so it made sense for us to consolidate our audiences.

Over the years, we’ve shared a lot of articles. In the last five years alone, our quarterly magazine has published more than 1,500 pages of content in PostPress – and there are YEARS of content prior to 2015 from The Binding Edge and InsideFinishing. We wanted to make it easier for you to find that content, so we have categorized all of the articles from the past five years on the PostPress website. Now you can check out our features on applications, die management, decorating processes, makeready and so on. In addition, archives are available from the original magazines, stretching back to 1995.

This was a big undertaking, but we’re excited to bring you this resource – a treasure trove of information from some of the best trade binders and finishers across the US, as well as articles from suppliers and industry experts. We’ll keep adding to it with every issue we publish.

Have a great day, everyone. And, as always, let us know if we can support your businesses in any way.

P.S. Now that Big 10 football is back… Go Big Red!
