Your Complete Guide to Publication Printers: What They Offer and What You Need

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 - 2:00pm - Watch Now

Choosing a printer remains your single most important vendor choice, even as media migrates online. In fact, it’s more important than ever in some respects because printers are playing an increasing role in other publishing services, from digital magazines, Web development and apps to database management and online content management systems. But just because the printer offers an array of services doesn’t mean their solutions—including printing your magazine, are the perfect fit. Thankfully, we’ve got some people who have been down the road on this complex analysis, crunched some numbers, learned some hard lessons and come up with some innovative ways of doing business. Two of them will join us in this must-attend Webinar, where we share the secrets for pricing, standards of service, digital add-ons, distribution and at the end of the day, "the right fit," between printer and media company.
