Agreed To Abort Its National No-Print Day!
In Makin's concluding remark, he restated the position of the printing industry that Toshiba abandon the notion of a No-Print day, and that if it wants to focus its eyes on the office marketplace, its campaign should be centered there and not by extension implicate or disparage America's printing industry. Mr. Melo did commit to going back to the drawing board and assured Mr. Makin the promotion on its website has been removed and that any re-launch of a campaign directed at office waste will explicitly explain that this in no way references the legitimate commercial printing industry and its importance to the American economy.

125 Years in the Pressroom
"The Burnishine brand was first seen when the J. C. Paul Company introduced a metal polish in 1887. The popularity of Burnishine Metal Polish prompted the company to use the Burnishine name on all its products. Shortly thereafter the company introduced Universal Putz Pomade, which was recommended for polishing hot metal in boiler plants. Printers used it to clean copper plates, and magazine publishers used it to clean rotogravure cylinders and linotype molds. Putz Pomade remains one of the best-selling Burnishine products after all these years."
Since 1887, Burnishine Products has manufactured a broad line of pressroom and related chemical products, including plate chemicals, blanket and roller cleaners, fountain solutions, and a line of related cleaning products all made in the USA.
