CrawfordTech’s Weekly Reading List: May 25, 2012

Digital Mail and news from the Digital Print Industry round out our ‘must read’ list of news articles for this week. Digital Mailbox Services has continued to be a topic that print and mailers are taking interest in; this is evident by the recent Pitney Bowes (and subsequently Volly) announcement and the recent release from Manilla on the number of bills and statements delivered since their Digital Mailbox Service launch.


On the digital print side of things, we take a look at how to work with White Ink, the attendance numbers from drupe (down from 2008) and what that means to the large trade show and how Adobe is working to enable more interactive workflows.

Did the drupa attendance affect the value of the show?

For those that attended drupa for most of the first half of May, the month has probably seemed to fly by. Given that drupa is one of the largest print shows in the world, we felt it only appropriate to take a look back this week now that the show has closed. In addition to drupa news, we continue our look at Digital Mailbox Services, emerging digital printing technology, one-to-one messaging and the consequences of the Royal Mail’s hike in postal rates.


Also, be sure to check out our breaking news featuring a new Crawford Technologies partner announcement. We also have a webinar feature that will allow you to view a replay of the Document and Mailing Systems Technology Magazine webinar on Multi-Channel Communications and Digital Mailbox Services.
