While the Printweek Awards finalists deservedly took centre stage in our February & March ‘Shortlist issue’, the issue was crammed as ever with a smorgasbord of insightful business and technology long reads and snappy news roundups...

Our briefings take a look at the much-vaunted packaging opportunity and we also share 10 top tips on navigating the paper supply crunch.

While the meaty Knowledge Bank section, as well as the usual business news, legal notices, tenders and a preview of the upcoming Sign & Digital UK show, gets under the skin of topics including worker wellbeing and the importance of well-drafted contracts.

As is tradition, the issue is bookended by Product Portfolio, which as well as profiling Tharstern details all the latest kit launches and updates and features One Digital’s review of its Vivid Laminating Technologies VeloBlade Volta 69+ and a close look at Mutoh’s latest entry-level roll-to-roll inkjets, the XpertJet Pro series.
