This Week in Imaging: Happy Holidays, Year in Review & More
This newsletter is coming to you early this week because of the Christmas holiday. We wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a happy and prosperous New Year!
Our 2014 Year in Review Special is chock-full of positive news that indicates that several major economies are turning the corner. Sales figures support seem to indicate that many offices are finally upgrading their printers after a long slump, while production printing continues unabated, as the technology employed in “big iron” continues to shift from offset to digital, especially digital inkjet, upgrades, We sense that some production-printing shops that were loath to upgrade from offset to toner-based digital presses have bypassed toner altogether and jumped directly to inkjet-based technology, due to its lower cost of ownership, superior reliability, and the appeal of ink on paper. We like to call this the (Windows) Vista effect.
