A Job Well Done at PRINT 13

We just finished another Print show.  And while our dogs are still barking, and crates are still being unpacked, I sit here with a great sense of satisfaction.  Exhibitions and tradeshows are a double-edged sword for many exhibitiors—especially those of us who manufacture large offset equipment.  The sheer cost of showing up can be daunting, …

Graph Expo 2012 is Just Around the Corner

The Komori Booth at Graph Expo 2011

Graph Expo 2012 is just around the corner.  And with it comes the crazy, hectic tradeshow frenzy that every exhibitor lives through. The nightmares, the middle of the night “we should do this” brainstorms, coupled with “the no sleep at all” nights worrying about what you’ve forgotten.

Counting Down the Days Until drupa 2012


drupa 2012 is rapidly approaching—are you attending? For me, this drupa already feels different. There have been a host of announcements from a wide range of exhibitors touting a number of interesting and exciting new products. It seems to me that drupa will be “springtime” in more ways than one—new products introduced, new alliances being …

Industry Leaders Come Together at Emerge


Komori participated in Consolidated Graphics (CGX) Emerge conference last week in Dallas, TX. What is so impressive about this event, other than the fact that it is flawlessly coordinated and first class all the way, is the staggering number of attendees. The nearly 1,000 participants were exposed to seminar content covering topics in print management, …

A Future for Growth – A Look at the 2011 Association of College and University Printers

A couple of weeks ago, I attended my very first ACUP conference. If you’re  asking yourself what ACUP is, you are not alone. With Komori’s focus on the in-plant market, we quickly discovered that one organization and conference you cannot miss is the Association of College and University Printers. This year’s session was held in …
