A new experience-rich consulting group, Graphic Communication Advisors, was recently formed to bridge the gap left by association mergers, downsizing or elimination. In the past, printing, publishing and imaging companies needing assistance regarding troubleshooting, problem-solving, technical auditing, training, environmental and safety compliance (or overall company assessments for improving methods, techniques, equipment and personnel) would go to national or local industry associations for such services. However, with the downsizing or elimination of many of these associations, the availability of such services has been greatly reduced.
The Directory of Graphic Communication Advisors is the “brainchild” of printing industry guru Raymond J. Prince, who has almost 6 decades of experience in graphic communications. Prince reached out to some of the most experienced and sought-after experts in our industry and brought them together as a “one-stop-shopping” resource for all facets of the printing, publishing, and imaging industry. This includes print service providers, OEMs and software developers – as well as graphic communication companies already into, or wanting to develop, services in non-print digital imaging.
“This website offers a directory of printing, publishing and imaging experts. Many are some of the most visible authorities, researchers, management and technical experts, and best-known authors in the graphic communications field,” Prince added. “They bring the power of their deep expertise and problem-solving acumen to bear on some of the industry’s most difficult problems. And they’re ready to serve.”
