CrawfordTech’s Weekly Reading List: September 30, 2011

Can you believe it is the end of September? It seems like just yesterday we were spending time face-to-face with our customers and partners at GRAPH EXPO 2011.

Then we went on to DMS Expo in Germany as well as attending the Xplor XDU On the Road in Kansas. It has been quite the month and in case you missed out on any of these events we have an excellent recap coming in the Crawford Courier (our ‘must read’ newsletter) next week.

Until then, we have some interesting news stories that range from insight into the USPS, North America’s first executive forum for print media and the PrintMediaCentr Vendor Spotlight on Ernie Crawford, our founder and president.
