View From The Publisher – October 04


Your business network is a powerful tool for business development.

One of the benefits of publishing a national magazine is the extensive network of business contacts that develops around the publication. This proved its value recently when we brought together a group of industry leaders who provided Graphic Arts Magazine with feedback and criticism of our editorial content. Their insights and opinions will greatly assist us in developing the ongoing direction, influence and success of this industry magazine.

We’d also like your input! Included with this month’s magazine is a Readers’ Survey that gives you an opportunity to provide feedback on how Graphic Arts Magazine serves your needs. Completed surveys will be entered in a draw that will take place at Print Ontario on November 22.

(If instead you find a Renewal Form in this issue, it means that we have not yet received an up-to-date Renewal Form from you. By taking a minute to fill it in, you’ll be guaranteed that your free subscription continues without interruption.)

If you are planning to attend the Graph Expo and Converting Expo 2004 in Chicago, we’d love to see you at our Booth – #2491. This show is the largest prepress, printing, converting and digital equipment trade show and conference in North America. Over 600 exhibitors representing all facets of the industry will be there, showing off the latest in industry technologies. The show runs from October 10 – 13 at McCormack Place South in Chicago.

If you miss us in there, we hope to see you at Print Ontario in Toronto, November 20-22, at the National Trade Centre. Not to be outdone, Print Ontario bills itself as “the largest trade show and conference for the not so big printer”.

I will close with an Irish blessing to you;
May the good Lord take a liking to you … but not too soon.
As always stay positive.


Joe Mulcahy Publisher, Graphic Arts Magazine
