No lack of innovation at the recent Innovationdays event

Call them publishing or graphic arts; it was these latest applications to come within the remit of continuous-feed inkjet printing that dominated Hunkeler Innovationdays (HID). Historically, HID has been all about printing bills, statements and high-volume direct mail; undemanding printing of text and limited graphics.

This year's Top 500 provides more reasons to be festive

John Lewis is tugging at the nation's heartstrings via another emotional rollercoaster of a TV campaign and the nation's high streets are festooned with brightly lit fire hazards that cause children to gape in awe and confused fear in equal measure.

Ipex won't be fazed by talk of three-year Drupa cycle

Royal Mail is working very hard to improve its efficiency to ensure we provide the service levels that our customers expect at the right prices.
