About This Issue
Finding tranquility and harmony during turbulent economic and publishing times can be bit off-putting. Some might even say that peace and harmony are unattainable these days. PrintMedia begs to differ.
No matter what type of communications you're responsible for developing and producing—magazines, catalogs, books, corporate documents or Web site content—this special July issue of PrintMedia will make your life a little easier, a little more simple and a lot less aggravating.
This issue marks the third annual printing of our "Digital Workflow Solutions Specifier" (DWSS, that is. Yes, another acronym). The DWSS was created three years ago in response to a cry for help from our faithful readership. You asked for a simple-to-use, at-a-glance reference for finding suppliers and vendors of digital workflow solutions, including software, hardware and services.
As you will soon see, the issue's layout is easy to navigate, with a comprehensive alphabetical listing of all relevant suppliers. The alpha section provides a quick reference for company location, essential phone numbers and Web site URLs. Following the alpha section is a series of product sections that categorize each of the suppliers by what they bring to the table. Each main product section has a series of subcategories, as well, that help distinguish the types of solutions listed.
Each section includes important product and service information for workflow tools like digital asset management applications, digital proofing equipment, digital monochrome and full-color presses; monitors and viewing devices; servers and workstations; connectivity and networking solutions, and much, much more.
If there's a workflow solution or tool you need, you'll find a source for it right here. We hope that you'll find this special issue, "Digital Workflow Solutions Specifier," to be a trusted desktop companion that will help you find what you're looking for, when you need it.
