FROM THE NEWS OFFICE OF PRINT 13

...the Graphic Arts Show Company's highly successful show here in Chicago. I'm not using the word successful loosely because of the comments my associate Pat Leavitt and I have gotten from exhibiting manufacturers and dealers as we walked the floor for the past three days.

Have we seen anything new? You bet we have and that covers machinery as well as supply items. For example…… Smart Fog was showing a 100% non-wetting humidity control system that eliminates mis-register and web breaks on web presses … Gluefast introduced a new tabletop case making system … Bracket's Mike Murray smiled large as he demonstrated his new tabletop index tab cutter.

On the supply side, New Force Magnetics Co. was showing off their new Transitional Graphics quick change signage system.

I'll stop for a moment to slap your wrist if you did not get to PRINT 13. WHY? Because there's nothing…nothing like seeing first hand and in some cases testing first hand a product in which you have interest. We can all agree that advertising is still the basic means of communications but when you can touch, feel and test something yourself….that can be the convincing proof as to whether the product is what you can sell in this everChanging marketplace.

Last night we spoke with the Tompkins brothers, Steve and Bill who said: "Great show - We're dealers that look to sell something off the show floor and we did. Overall we got twice the leads and about twice the sales as we did last year."

In a booth area named "Inkjet Candy Store" we found the newest of wide format printers from H-P, Xerox and where Reprographic Technology drew buyer attention to their new Vortex Inkjet Printer powered by Memjet.DC
