THEMAGAZINE 16 – Now in print, PDF, HTML5 and EPUB format

THEMAGAZINE16One must be a bit obsessed, or at least passionate, about publishing a print magazine to go through the hassle of putting it together – particularly when so many others have elected to publish an online version as an alternative. Yet, we did it again.

In this issue, we take you on a trip throughout the print world, starting in the US with customer case studies about publication printer Creel Printing and the marketing solutions business FMG. Then we take you south to Saõ Paulo, Brazil where top-notch creatives meet top notch IT at P+E. And we finish our travels in Europe, looking at packaging production at Gutenberg Networks and August Faller KG and we visit the Burda Druck factory in Germany.

Whether you’re reading this from an iPad, or on a desktop, we hope these pages inspire you. And if you like to have your printed copy, contact us at info@dalim.com.
