ImageOur congratulations to Webcom President, Warren Wilkens for being the recipient of the annual Graphic Arts Leader of North America award. Warren, along with Mario Cesar de Camargo, President of the Brazilian Association of the Graphic Industry who received the award for South America, were on hand to accept their awards before hundreds of industry leaders at the 22nd annual Gala Awards banquet. Warren was very involved in the Canadian print industry and later in the American print industry and has served as chairman of both the Canadian and US Printing Associations.

A loud round of applause to Chris Price and Graphics of the Americas for putting on an exciting show in Miami in February. Graphics of the Americas is one of the largest international trade shows for the printing, converting and design trade industry, with participation from over 450 companies occupying more than a half million square feet of exhibition space.

I was speaking to one of our clients recently and he made a simple statement about his business attitude, “Competing on price always results in loses. Delivering value, integrity and meaningful customer service always results in gains.” It’s hard to argue against such a simple business philosophy!
