All in Print 2016: Special Promo Codes for our visitors!

2 septiembre, 2016
Just 3 months after drupa, PCS is delighted to announce that we will be exhibiting at All In Print, between October 18-22 in Shanghai, China. To celebrate such a special occasion like this trade fair, we will be offering special promo codes for those of you who visit us at our stand M4 A156 in Hall 4, zone A. These codes will be redeemable throughout 2016 for one order for any products through our e-commerce platform, Online4Printers. It’s your chance to get an exceptionally great deal on our highest quality cutting sticks, rubber suckers, wash up blades, or even filaments for 3D printing. The reasons to join us are many: It’s the most important Asian trade fair in the printing industry, as well as one of the most relevant for those of us who are involved in the global supply chain in China. More than 40% of the print market is Asian, and top-tier companies like Bobst, Canon, Xerox, or Ricoh booked their booths already in December, 2015. This last fact alone shows how strong the registration has been for the 6th All In Print. As for us, we are no strangers to Press, E-business and Creativity, three of the main six themes for this year’s edition. We will be presenting our on-line tool, Online4Printers, aimed at making quotations and orders easier and faster for our customers and distributors. Online4Printers allows its users to access their best, personalised prices and check them out at any time of the day. Moreover, shipping options are still advantageous. Any order placed through Online4Printers can be shipped from either Spain, Hong Kong or the U.S., just like by directly contacting our office. Additionally, we encourage you to visit our stand at All In Print in case you are interested in 3D printing. As mentioned above, PCS Graphic Arts is now offering a whole new spectrum of products and services, based on our expertise in manufacturing plastics and the idea of 3D printing as an extension of traditional printing. From consulting to filaments, we’ve got it covered.

drupa 2016: Results & Final Thoughts on Business Etiquette

20 junio, 2016
This year’s edition of the most important trade fair for print and crossmedia solutions, drupa, has received nearly 2,000 exhibitors from 54 countries, and we have had the pleasure to be one of them. The investment climate was tangible as 54% of the visitors – who traveled from 188 countries – came to the fair with clear investment intentions according to drupa’s official data. Moreover, 29% placed orders during the event and 30% are willing to do it during the weeks following drupa. Also, 60% found new suppliers. As a company with over 40 years of experience and know-how in the graphic industry, we can proudly affirm we are part of these statistics, in a good way. After a week processing approximately 430 contact forms gathered from our stand visitors, we found out that we attended business meetings with people from 80 countries, many of whom are placing or willing to place orders. We found exceptional partnerships (Also with scholars and universities!), we focused our brand new 3D division, Look3Dprint, and learned. Learned a lot. Not everything was a bed of roses However, rejoicing at our results is not an end in itself, as intensive-stand-visiting-strategy during a trade fair is the easy part. Keeping up with our new contacts and implementing personalized and straightforward B2B marketing tactics in the least possible time before any other company does is a real struggle that many of us are experiencing, especially bearing in mind that: Many of the visitors came by with no clear intentions and some simply left their business cards without saying a word; Some brought no business card or had incomplete contact info (Wasn’t this a print industry trade fair?); Language was a barrier for some small businesses from non-English-speaking countries; Not setting appointments was the rule, not the exception, which made planning ahead more difficult. Unfortunately, business must go on and for those of us who could not keep in regular touch with our headquarters (This is a shout out to the WiFi issue, drupa!) during the fair, this means extra information research, extra effort and extra workload organizing data and tailoring custom email campaigns in an unsure way, all combined with daily tasks. But a good customer service pays off, it always pays off. What’s next? Although business etiquette should give space to debate, fortunately it was not paralyzing. Drupa has finally decided to stick to its classic 4-year cycle showing an exceptional listening ability from its management group, Messe Düsseldorf. We all should follow the example and make our best to serve our new contacts and thinking about their needs. There is no business without efficient communication, even if we have to make an extra effort to reach out those who are not aware of this.

drupa 2016: Overview, Industry Expectations & Investment Opportunities

2 junio, 2016
After receiving over 300K visitors and housing more than 1.800 exhibitors in its 2012 edition, drupa comes back this year and opens its doors to the most important date for printing and cross-media professionals worldwide. Celebrated for the first time 4 years ago in Düsseldorf, Germany, the “Touch the Future” motto will gather representatives from over 50 countries together and will fill up the 19 halls reserved for the sector’s most important trade fair between May 31st and June 10th. Xerox has even drafted a brochure on how to make the most of your time at the event.     Despite welcoming an endless range of products, drupa 2016 has focused its organizational efforts upon cutting-edge technologies. As explained by Claus Bolza-Schüneman, Chairman of the drupa Committee, the Mega Trend of this year’s edition will be Print 4.0: “Print 4.0 enables individualisation and personalisation in digital printing (…) this digital networking of machines and systems offers the solution and guarantee for efficiency and competitiveness.” Moreover, one the added benefits of this year’s edition is the programme of accompanying technical events, comprised of drupa innovation park, drupa cube, PEPSO (Printed Electronics Products and Solutions), 3D fab + print and touchpoint packaging, so as to provide a more immediate contact with stakeholders and target groups. No doubt, drupa is a must-attend event; a strategical space where 79% of the visitors are decision-makers. It is no surprise that drupa is the preferred place this year for introducing products as different as the IBS-100 all-in-one bar sensor developed by Q.I. Press Controls; Ricoh’s Pro 9100, Pro C7100, Pro 8100 printers and integrated solutions such as TotalFlow; the HBS 8.000 saddle stitcher by Hohner Maschinenbau; or automated gluing technologies (Melt-on-Demand) by Robatech, among others. Applied Artificial Intelligence companies, such as Sterling Print House, and especially MGI Digital Technology – which has created some overwhelming expectations – have decided to introduce more than one product throughout this essential trade fair. Also, the 2016 drupa edition is being held in a singular industry situation. According to the Second drupa Global Trends Report, while “last’s years (industry revenues for 2014) expectations were not fully met across the globe (…) there was nevertheless a positive trend to invest more.” The Third drupa Global Trends Report released earlier this year claims that this year’s overview is patchier. However, forecasts for Africa, Austria/Oceania, Middle East and Asia are particularly promising, a fact that reaffirms the need of the industry for a global scope and viewpoint of its professionals, for which attending no.1 global touch points such as drupa is a key success factor. Anecdotally, drupa is switching to a 3 year-cycle from now on so as to respond to the industry’s changing landscape. In terms of investment opportunities, drupa has a compelling call-to-action for it: “Let’s go phygital”. What they mean by it is that “physical and digital technologies as well as offline and online worlds are growing closer and closer together.” Physical means such as 3D printing equipment and supplies,

3 Ways in which (investing in) 3D is the same as Traditional Printing

25 mayo, 2016
The massive manufacturing revolution predicted by experts since the popularization of 3D printing has caused some serious havoc for this technology’s reputation. There are many reasons why printers and manufacturers seem to have been frightened away from it: its alleged scope, unclear costs and uses, and – above all – its apparent lack of relation to traditional printing. However, there are reasons to believe that 3D is not the substitute of traditional printing, but its extension and, therefore, printing industry investors and businessmen are in a privileged position to expand to this fascinating technology: 1. Traditional printing has always had a 3-dimensional vocation Those more resistant printable materials, such as cardboard or vinyl, have been used for constructing 3-dimensional pieces for a very long time. Not only pieces that were conceived to be disposable – such as scale models, prototypes, or merchandising stands -, but also items with longer service lives such as cardboard furniture and packaging; plastic finishes for instruments, electronic devices, toys, or decoration. Getting over 2-dimensionality and introducing reliefs on flat surfaces has been appreciated in plastic arts since ancient times, and nowadays it is still rewarded in areas as down-to-earth as business cards. Going for 3D printing in all those areas offers a huge advantage: no extra time, effort or money is needed for cutting and assembly. Also, target markets for 3D printing professionals are countless: With the right strategy, traditionally 2-dimensional products (as above) are covered as well as new-to-the-printing-industry, cost-effective, and growing areas such as medicine, automotive, computer, and aerospace engineering can be built in your company’s portfolio. 2. They share manufacturing materials and processes 3D printing is called printing and not simply manufacturing for a simple reason: One of its most widely used techniques is jetting, both binder and material. Just like traditional inkjet printers, the machine carefully drops the build materials. Other processes are stereolithography, DLP, Laser Melting, extrusion, Selective Deposition Lamination, and EBM. Although you can 3D print almost anything in almost any material (including porcelain, chocolate, human tissues, paper and precious metals), plastics are still the most commonly used, and the fact is that plastic filaments are made of same materials your pressroom consumables are. Therefore, it is easy to find a supplier who will be able to provide you products for both traditional and 3D printing with no major complications in your purchase management. 3. Human Resources needed are similar and strategic advantages big If your printing company has been around for a while now, chances are that some of your employees already are familiar with design basics. Learning curves for traditional and 3D printing are similar: Although you must not underestimate the difficulty of designing programs and 3D modelling, the printing itself – what might concern you the most, as design abilities are for corrective purposes only – is a highly automated process. On the other hand, if your company is struggling with overcoming a genuinely traditional printing business model, consider recruiting a Chief Digital Officer (CDO) or
