2020 hasn’t all been bad. We’ve seen some tremendous innovation in the wide-format digital print sector, and that goes for kit, consumables and software as well as Covid-19 related print applications. Here we applaud those we think worthy of particular appreciation.

2021 in Brexit Britain is unlikely to be the worst of times - or the best of times - as Walter Hale suggests ahead of its EU departure.

Covid-19 has knocked everyone for six, but I’ve got to say, the IPIA has been really quick and forceful in its actions. Back in March, and together with the then separate BAPC, it produced an impact statement on the print industry for the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). 

All things environmental may be climbing up the agenda, but we have to face it - more needs to be done to engage with the waste industry if this sector is to really improve its green credentials.

The various virtual launches of large-format printers this year may mean some have passed you by, so here’s a reminder of the latest introductions just in case new kit is on your Christmas list!

As we head into 2021 - and the next Widthwise poll of UK large-format PSPs - now is a good time to reflect on what key print company bosses had to say about doing business in this shape shifting sector at out first ever WIdthwise Live webinar this autumn.

John Boland is co-founder of custom workwear and safety signage company HiVis.co.uk, which has seen its in-house large-format print operation take-off since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. His take on developing that side of the business may well help you do likewise.
