In her welcoming speech, BindRite President Cyndi Christie, owner of McIntire Business Products, Concord, NH, , made this comment, “Our network is making a significant contribution to the fast paced ‘Digital Print on Demand’ market space by presenting Print Finishing products from the world class manufacturers we represent, many of which are adapting ‘Green Button Technology’ into their new designs.”
John Stewart, Executive Director of National Print Owners Association (NPOA) was the key note speaker at the conference and his remarks highlighted with alarm, the threat of rising labor cost in the operations of printers, large and small. The comments from Ms. Christie combined with the presence of so many “Green Button” labor saving finishing devices and supplies at the BindRite Trade Show, offer answers and solutions to the reigning in of those troubling labor costs.
