The Year of the Decision

At the end of the year, the Future Report of the Frankfurt Future Institute is one of my must-reads. The experts around Matthias Horx see 2021 as “the year of decision” in which a new (dis)order is supposed to emerge. The Corona crisis will most certainly go down in history…

Learning with printed books

As a print industry veteran and book enthusiast, I have watched with dismay for many years as my own kids stared, deeply engrossed, at their cell phones.  Witnessing them growing up with a deep love for children’s books in the early years, only to see them transition seamlessly to every…

Optimum productivity and performance? It comes at a price.

Within most industries, manufacturers and service providers get to choose how they can differentiate themselves from their competitors. Unfortunately, given today’s challenging newspaper production environment, price often plays a significant role. But, make no mistake, the lowest price typically comes at a cost.   That’s why I recommend that when…

As a year like no other comes to a close, take time for some housecleaning.

Although this year has been a first for many difficult realities, we have adjusted and, thankfully, thrived in the face of adversity. We have turned our dining rooms, kitchens, and basements into home offices and schools.  And, we are grateful that our particular business can still succeed despite these challenging…

Introducing an all-new, fully automated saddle stitcher that delivers more runs per shift. No matter the size of the print run.

It’s hard to believe that our founder, Hans Muller, introduced the first saddle stitcher back in 1954 when the competition was running around 1,000 cycles per hour. Ours quadrupled that figure—while offering better quality. Now, more than 65 year’s later, Muller Martini offers the ultimate in automated finishing with the…
