Investing in print: at the opening of Franklin Web NSW.
t is not every day that we see a new $50m print plant opened, so congratulations to all at IVE for the investment in the new Franklin Web NSW, the 24/7 catalogue and magazine printing house. This issue of Print21, the print industry’s highest
circulating media, has the full story on page 26. The numbers are dazzling; four million pages an hour, with just 10 staff in the plant at any one time, and a virtual lights-out platemaking department. Automation, robots and digital workflow in full swing – great to see.
Welcome to

CMYKhub – HP Indigo x 5
National trade printer boosts its capacity with a record-breaking five more HP Indigo presses.
Congratulations, too, to the PIAA and all who went to the inaugral Print2Parliament event at Parliament House, which saw a record number of MPs and senators turn up for an industry event, to engage with printers coming from around the country. Printing now is the biggest manufacturing industry in Australia, but its fragmented nature means it has always had a low profile. Now, thanks to the efforts of PIAA and printers that is changing, which is really good news for all of us.
Print21 magazine is committed to reporting on growth opportunities and the print people, technologies and markets
that are creating results. In this issue one of our business insights pages (p60) has Scott Telfer asking uncomfortable questions about customer experience, and we have a market analysis of inkjet printing on page 62, and of digital textile printing, see page 42.
We also outline the new Heidelberg subscription model on page 28.
Also in this issue Patrick Howard interviews two industry leaders who have had to adapt and move their businesses to keep them ahead; one a printer John Wanless from Bambra Press, (p22) and one on the supply side (p34), John Wall from Roland DG, both an insightful read, from long-term industry players who are thriving.
This issue also covers the latest developments in the label sector – conventional, hybrid and digital – and at the rapidly changing world of embellishing, where digital is making a real impact. In wide format
we look at the textiles market, which is set to surge, and finally we report on the changing world of trade printing.
And that’s it for the year, another roller-coaster
12 months in print – you know you’re alive – so from me
and the Print21 team we wish you and your family a Happy Christmas and a great New Year.
