The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States (U.S. or US) or America, is a country consisting of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and various possessions.[g] At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2), it is the world’s third- or fourth-largest country by total area[c]. Most of the country is located in central North America between Canada and Mexico. With an estimated population of over 328 million, the U.S. is the third most populous country in the world. The capital is Washington, D.C., and the most populous city is New York City.

Paleo-Indians migrated from Siberia to the North American mainland at least 12,000 years ago.[19] European colonization began in the 16th century. The United States emerged from the thirteen British colonies established along the East Coast. Numerous disputes between Great Britain and the colonies led to the American Revolutionary War lasting between 1775 and 1783, leading to independence.[20] The United States embarked on a vigorous expansion across North America throughout the 19th century—gradually acquiring new territories,[21]displacing Native Americans, and admitting new states—until 1848 when it spanned the continent.[21] During the second half of the 19th century, the American Civil War led to the abolition of slavery in the United States.[22][23] The Spanish–American War and World War I confirmed the country’s status as a global military power.

The United States emerged from World War II as a global superpower. It was the first country to develop nuclear weapons and is the only country to have used them in warfare. During the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union competed in the Space Race, culminating with the 1969 Apollo 11 mission, the spaceflight that first landed humans on the Moon. The end of the Cold War and collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 left the United States as the world’s sole superpower.[24]

The United States is a federal republic and a representative democracy. It is a founding member of the United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Organization of American States (OAS), NATO, and other international organizations. It is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council.

A highly developed country, the United States is the world’s largest economy by nominal GDP, the second-largest by purchasing power parity, and accounts for approximately a quarter of global GDP.[25] The United States is the world’s largest importer and the second-largest exporter of goods, by value.[26][27] Although its population is 4% of the world total,[28] it holds 29.4% of the total wealth in the world, the largest share of global wealth concentrated in a single country.[29] Despite income and wealth disparities, the United States continues to rank very high in measures of socioeconomic performance, including average wage, median income, median wealth, human development, per capita GDP, and worker productivity.[30][31] It is the foremost military power in the world, making up more than a third of global military spending,[32] and is a leading political, cultural, and scientific force internationally.[33]

It was a tough one to pick. Because I'm always like talking about myself. But I kind of reflected back on the last couple of years. And we've all had our ups and downs and our struggles. But I had a few other things that came in play. And I just needed to take care of myself. I spent a lot of time on webinars. And spent a lot of time reading. Kind of self-improving myself as far as the industry. And then my life outside of work. That's probably my favorite crosstab project to run on. I enjoy having projects go on a 640-size press. The harder the project is, the more fun I have with them. The right customer really appreciates what you do for them and understands the value they're getting. Says a lot about what they think about me as well as our company. Maybe I was sucking up a little. You know, it was a lot more to do with the camera. And I thought, well, I need to have a good background. And INKISH was as good as good as any, right? Everything from this conversation we're having right now to you halfway across the world to... You know, I'm meeting with clients. I met with one in Vancouver, British Columbia. And so, it's almost like a little show and tell, like a reading school. You know, you turn in the pages so that each one can be reviewed. And so that's been kind of a nice way to look at crews and talk about them. It can only bring us closer if we are able to. But finding the right people to connect with or finding a person to connect with. You know, I had come across a few of your videos. Maybe it was in one of the like the printing impressions emails that I received or something along that lines - a while back. I just watched one of your seminars.

Bailey is the official dog of the McGrew Group. She is my co-host, Drupa dog. I have a wall full of them. And they're not all Disney. They're a little bit of everything. I grew up in the 60s with Saturday morning cartoons. I grew up with all the Disney pieces. My business partner at the time bought me the first cel. Which was of George Jetson and Astro. And then it got to be a thing. I always loved the roadrunner. I lived in New Mexico for five years. We moved into a house almost eight years ago that had a giant family room. And it also had sort of a more living room area. It has books, animation cels, the TV. But I also have a fireplace. But my space isn't really as big. I never wanted to be an independent consultant. I like the camaraderie of working for an organization. I can write technology. I understand where the vendors are. And whether they are hardware or software. And I understand the printing side of it. I've actually been able to craft a good assessment business. A good consulting business. A good writing business. It is harder and harder to be a one brand person. As an independent, I can work with everybody. I am sixty four. I've been walking around singing the Beatles song a lot. I think I've got a good 10 years at this. I think there is opportunity. We have three restaurants. We are remaining hopeful that by summer we'll be able to get them all open and full again. Everybody's had the last year to kind of sit in the lab and figure out what they needed to do. They've been busy. I mean, everyone that I work with has been busy. More interesting inkjet innovations. More interesting toner innovations. More interesting substrate innovations. And you put those all together. I'm excited.

In the morning when I first start, I work with two monitors. And I don't want to stare at the monitor all day. So I've set it up with a window background, which no one recommends. But it gives me a chance to take a look at the view. You know the activity as the morning rises - because I start very early. Look at all the emails, different newsletters, especially INKISH. No kidding. And that's what I do. That is how I start my day. The pandemic has allowed me to take deeper contact with a lot of people. Because they have more time to spend in communication on the computer than they would have ever had before. Absent a formal webinar circumstance where people are generally stiffer. There's a lot more interaction of conversational type of communication that takes place. You learn more about the person when you do that. So that's one benefit of the pandemic. I hope the communication doesn't go away. Books are extremely important. This is merely a small amount of the books that I have. It's well over two thousand. And that's been shaved down when I moved down to Chile. A lot of them are reference books that I have. That I use on a constant basis. I'll think of something and I want to verify it. But I like the books. And if you can read any of the titles that are in the background. There's a lot of art books. I think that books have an interactivity that is important. So I think printing industry and its relationship to books is really important. I have a wall that I look at. Prominent on the wall is a portrait of Pablo Picasso and Henry Moores. These are important to me as inspiration. As people who, with their own path, spoke their own minds and did creative things. I think of myself in business as being a creative person. In the upper left hand corner there's a sketch of my mother when she was young. And a sketch of my father when he was old. He loved sailing and he is there working on the chart. And he would always dress up whatever character he was playing. As a photographer, as a sailor, as a businessman. And I don't have his fashion skills. But I appreciate the photos that he's created. And I love that portrait of him.

There is nothing more important than using your voice. The vote last year in America was one of the most significant milestones in our history. What matters is that you use your voice. A few weeks ago, I got my first Covid vaccine. It was an emotional experience for me. Life getting back to the next normal. The fact that I could get on a plane again really changes everything. There is nothing like seeing people, meeting people, discovering things when you travel the world. It really is a dichotomy, a velvet devil. And in a lot of ways, that's how I felt about last year. There was some really intimate things about it. Connections with other people. And then there was just the hell of it. One of the most difficult things I found about last year was I don't really have any business coming in. I'm not going anywhere. And what am I going to do? Just give me a second, because you made me think about something else. Many people lost people last year, and I am one of them. We lost my grandma to Covid and it has been really hard. It's been very difficult in a weird way. Tie that to all of the things that died last year. A metaphorical sense. No trade shows last year. A lot of relationships ended because you didn't see people and people ended relationships with companies. The Project Peacock Platform. The entire ecosystem of what everybody needs is in one place. I think it's really important they can get print samples. They can find printers who have that equipment. This is cool. I want to do it. Great. This is who you can do it with.

How Post Composition Print Tools will Dr...

It is a new year and you are looking for that edge as a Print Service Provider (PSP). You may even consider yourself a Marketing Service Provider (MSP). In any case, you need fresh ideas for how to drive success for your operations through optimisation, remote working and, ultimately, cost savings. For your offerings, your print shop needs to take more orders into the print workflow. That work needs to have personalisation as an option and the security of tracking and reporting to ensure it is delivered. More than delivery, you also need a process that ensures billing accuracy, so none of your print shop profits stays on the table. In 2021, the way to drive your print shop’s boost in success can come from an unlikely player—post-composition print workflow solutions. We invite you to join a lively discussion with the mission to benefit Print Service Providers (PSPs) and their associated print shops. By taking on the right tools and making sure that those tools can grow and shrink easily with your needs, the door to new opportunities is set to open. Analysts tell us that these themes will endure throughout 2021: · larger number of orders with smaller quantities · need for personalisation · requirement for fast production and delivery · requirement for competitive pricing. To support your customers, your print shop will need to be at the top of its optimisation game. You will need to have your cost savings strategy dialled in. We believe you will want to leverage post-composition print workflow tools so you can improve print-ready files coming in from customers. Moreover, we believe having a great relationship with experts in this area will bring you less stress and boost your success. Join us for the conversation and accelerate your 2021 print shop success.

#thankaprinter

Ladies and Gentleman… #thankaprinter Please use the hashtag when sharing. Print Long and Prosper! And when the virus came, people turned to their leaders and their community and said: “We need to keep our families and our loved ones safe. We need to know how. We need somebody willing to get up at dawn in the cold, in the rain, in the blistering heat and open their doors so we may keep ours closed. Somebody who will work tirelessly, with ink-stained clothes and calloused hands to fire up the presses, to feed the paper, to fold and score and distribute hope.” So they called a Printer. And when supplies ran low, when our heath care heroes on the front-lines desperately needed protection, Printers forged facemasks, face shields and partitions and answered the call of their nations to help their citizens heal. They answered by reinventing and retooling and constructing 3D printed parts for respirators, breathing life into patients and hospitals and communities suffocating without . They answered the call to transform children and parents into students and teachers, and kitchen tables into classrooms … and cathedrals. They made the signs, the clings and the decals to arm their communities in the fight to stay open and distanced and educated. They sent the mail that delivered checks that kept food on the table and lights overhead, and protected packaged goods on the shelves in storerooms and backrooms and pantries. They worked in split shifts to keep us safe from harm while struggling to keep their doors open, not once asking for anything in return. When we look back, when we have distanced ourselves from this moment in time and are reunited with each other, let’s not forget to remember who stood, fearless, at the gate, and said this community, this family, this business won’t go down on my watch. Let us not forget to Thank a Printer. Written by Deborah Corn, Print Media Centr. Produced by INKISH and PrintMediaCentr. Video editing by Jan Majnik · INKISH

Highcon Open House at Virtual Packaging ...

To step into a printing company where the lobby looks more like a fancy café or restaurant is just raising the expectations, and the audience was for sure given food for the brain during the few hours open-house event. Highcon is the host, and INKISH was commissioned to cover the event, however, the coverage to turn out to interviews, and nice visuals. After a short introduction to the event by Vice President and General Manager Matt Bennets from Highcon Americas, the stage was hand over to Mike Ferrari. Ferrari is a well-established name in the industry as being a great speaker and motivator, and of course, the purpose was to give the audience an insight in why digital finishing is becoming more and more interesting. One of the high lights was that pricing of, i.e. packaging has to be seen from a different perspective than the production cost itself - or what brands pay today. The price has to be way more about what value it brings to a product. Short-run, personalization, and even completely new types of packaging are just a few of the promises. Then it was time for a demo. The work-floor had only two machines - a Landa S10, and a Highcon Beam - but those two machines are the ones that give Virtual Packaging a tremendous success. Highcon presented how fast the setup time was, the production of the DART (creasing), and then, of course, the production of different types of products. But why not just watch, and listen - after all a bit easier!

STATUS: Printing United 2019 · Ford Bowe...

Printing United has been one of the most anticipated events in the US printing industry for at least some years. When a new trade-show of this scale is presented, most attendees, exhibitors, media, and of course, the people working with the event, set some expectations. Printing United was fantastic. Most of the time, exhibitors were very busy, and attendees used the show to gain knowledge, to see new products, to be inspired, and of course, to acquire new products, and services. The show had, in my opinion, fewer innovations than expected. Maybe this made Printing United "just" a perfect trade show because of the size, the optimism, and the fact that the organizers "under one roof" show was right. We will soon write a more detailed opinion on INKISH.NEWS about the event itself, and what kind of things we would like to see in the future. But here you can hear and see an interview with one of the driving forces behind Printing United, President & CEO Ford Bowers of the SGIA. This film was recorded LIVE.

Memjet Launches New Duraflex Print Heads...

At the recent LabelExpo Europe 2019, we got a chance to talk to General Manager Kim Beswick from Memjet about their new product launch - Duraflex. Memjet is a developer of core-technology that is licensed to a long range of partners, producing the finale machines. The list of partners is long and include names in almost every segment of the value chain from office print to large format, industrial print. Memjet practically invented waterfall technology where the colours are falling from the mounted print heads rather than moving the print head forth and back. This enables really fast print, and when you see a Memjet enabled machine for the first time, you can't do anything but say WHAU. With the launch of the new Duraflex print head, Memjet offers a third-generation inkjet engine where speed, quality, and price are the main KPI's. Watch, Like, and Share as usual.

Using Online Marketing to Grow The Print...

Will Crabtree has been featured earlier on INKISH, and we are always happy to meet printers who experience growth. Not only has TampaPrinter.com expanded its premises, but the number of printing units, staff, and foot space have increased since we last met Will Crabtree and his team. What we like about this story is how online marketing and SoMe presence supports the printing industry. This should inspire all printers globally to use all kinds of media to grow your business. TampaPrinter and Will Crabtree is an amazing example of how growth is more a matter of will than anything else. See you sometime in the future.

Moving LED-UV to the next level · Steve ...

The impact LED-UV has had on the printing industry the last years is simply amazing. AMS - now AMS Spectral UV - was one of the early adopters in this technology and not only have the technology developed rapidly when it comes to quality, pricing, and even the spectra where the UV-light operates, but the applications and equipment using UV has increased a lot. Having broader frequencies makes it possible to have fewer photo-initiators in the ink making it both cheaper to buy, but also better for the environment. UV has so many advantages, and though the ​ink is still more expensive, the advantages surpass this. AMS Spectral UV now takes LED-UV a step further by offering to retrofit LED-UV on web-offset presses. Exchanging the gas heater with LED-UV saves gas, electricity, but even increase the quality of the print beyond what's possible with the gas-dryer. In this film, President Steve Metcalf explains the opportunities!

Automation is a big business. No question about that and every time we publish films or articles about workflow automation view numbers are higher. Most of the films we have done are about vendors talking about the advantages but at the 'Automatiserings" conference held by the federation of printers in Denmark in collaboration with Medit Consult, one of the speakers was our favorite go-to-workflow-person in the printing industry Diego Diaz. With a humble approach, he told the story about being the small printer seeing the need for automation to being a Solution Architect for one of the more exciting printing companies in the US - The Bernard Group. In this interview, Diego Diaz talks about the need for automation and why all printing companies regardless of size need to have automation.

Enfocus Switch gives Sign-Age huge advan...

Maybe you remember, but back at DRUPA 2016, Enfocus announced a really interesting initiative called X-treme Switchover. The X-treme Switchover is a project that elects a printing company to get a free implementation of a workflow based on Enfocus Switch and, the lucky printing company who got this is Sign-Age in Clearwater, FL, USA. After Sign-Age was picked last year INKISH was invited to follow the requirements phase, the implementation phase and the 'after go-live' phase to document the ups/downs of this process. Almost a year ago we published the first film where you see the requirements phase and where we speak to different people at the company about what to expect. A year later the implementation is still on-going, but as both President Linda Levitan and Vice President Michael Quigley explains, is not because of difficulties or obstacles, but more because the company simply have been too busy. At the same time, Clearwater was hard hit by a hurricane which both gave power problems as well as extra work replacing signs. In this film, we speak to various stakeholders and here a year after results are starting to show and the staff is really positive. From an INKISH perspective, we find it interesting to see for several reasons. One is the positive response from staff. Second is the continued high expectations from management - and last and more from our perspective, how modest the demands are and what a huge impact it already has on the company. When Sign-Age discover how much more Enfocus Switch can do I am certain that they will appreciate their solution even more. Take a look and enjoy!

We will share information about the event. We will talk to exhibitors about what to expect, and hopefully, more that can encourage YOU to go. We like the concept of getting together, learn from each other and explore new technology, new consumables, and new constellations. We hope to see you in Chicago September 30th-October2nd 2018.

AMS Spectral UV on Merging with Baldwin

AMS Spectral UV was acquired by Baldwin Technology Company almost a year ago and INKISH got the opportunity to go to River falls in Wisconsin to talk to President Steve Metcalf and more people from the company that used to be known as Air Motion Systems. AMS Spectral UV is one of the world's leading developers of LED-UV curing systems and has been extremely successful over the past years. In this film, we get an insight into the potentials the acquisitions give AMS and also how it has influenced Steve Metcalf who has spent a major part of his life in the company. We hope you like the film!

INKISH.TV proudly presents: Linda Levita...

At DRUPA in 2016, our friends from Enfocus in Belgium announced the X-Treme Switchover program and when INKISH.TV was asked to cover some of the programs we were SO excited about this. To recap briefly on the Switchover program the entire program aims to give an honest and openhearted view on the entire process from requirements, implementation, and results when getting a workflow implemented. How often do you meet a vendor that also show the obstacles, the worries, and the considerations whether this is worth investing in? The 'winner' or to be more precise the printer selected is Sign-Age in Clearwater, FL. Great family operated large format and signage company with motivated staff ready for exploring automation in their company. We really enjoyed the stay, the program and the great opportunity to be part of the X-treme switchover and we sincerely hope that you will view this, read more on the campaign site you will find with Enfocus and listen, learn and well - who knows, maybe be inspired for some kind of automation in your printing company as well.

INKISH.TV Proudly presents: Steve Metcal...

Not only has the new generations of UV- curing made print even more fantastic over the past years - but with AMS's development of LED-based UV - the company has become tremendously successful on the global print stage. AMS has always been a close friend to INKISH.TV and is one of the main reasons why we faster than anticipated became a global online TV-channel. We have made three films about AMS LED-UV customers from Sweden (Billes, Gothenburg), Germany (Königsdruck, Berlin) and, the Netherlands (Deltabach, Rotterdam) - so what is more natural than bringing an interview with President Steve Metcalf - thank you, Steve, for your support and a warm congratulation on your awards, your success and your extremely great products. This Interview we did at Print17 and it is done in two sep. episodes - where the second will be published during the next days, where Steve will present the latest

INKISH.TV proudly presents: Will Crabtre...

Will Crabtree runs a small print shop in Tampa, Florida - and we were invited to visit Will Crabtree and his team, while we were in Tampa on another job. TampaPrinter is both a walk-in-store and a web-store - and reason, why we found it interesting, is that no one should underestimate that companies like TampaPrinter sometimes have a strong owner a dedication to growth that is not often seen among larger printers. Will Crabtree has experienced huge growth over the past years and he has both the energy, the skills and the go-to- attitude that all printing operations can learn from. Get inspired by the positive attitude from Will Crabtree and enjoy this INKISH.TV episode.
