The Future of Print:  Industry News

The commercial printing industry is constantly evolving, and there are always new and fascinating developments to keep up with. Here are a few of the most recent news items that you should be aware of:

  • The rise of AI: Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly transforming the industry, with applications in everything from layout and design to quality control and production optimization. AI-powered tools can help automate tasks, personalize printing, and optimize production, improving efficiency, profitability, and customer satisfaction.
  • The growth of digital printing: Digital printing is becoming increasingly popular, as it offers several advantages over traditional offset printing, such as shorter turnaround times, lower costs, and the ability to print on a wider variety of materials. As the demand for digital printing continues to grow, the industry as a whole is investing in new equipment and learning new skills to stay competitive.
  • The increasing importance of sustainability:  This will always be top of mind and is becoming increasingly important to businesses and consumers alike, and the commercial printing industry is no exception. Printers are under pressure to reduce their environmental impact, and a number of new technologies and practices can help them do so. For example, printers can use recycled paper, water-based inks, and energy-efficient equipment.
  • The growing popularity of custom printing: Consumers are increasingly demanding customized products, and this trend is also evident in print.  Printers can meet this demand by offering various customization options, such as personalized messages, images, and logos. Custom printing can help businesses connect with their customers more personally and increase brand loyalty.
