Inprint Issue 51

In this issue of Inprint, we focus on investing to progress, including a preview of our Investment Decision Making report which we'll be releasing shortly. We also discuss the importance of investing in your managers by equipping them with the tools to manage effectively.

We take stock of the BPIF specialist services you can use to improve your business, and our Legal team outline new rules for lending to small businesses. We look at the dangers of compressed air and outline what to do in the case of a hazardous waste spillage.

Infact reports on subdued growth in orders and output, and mounting costs, with the industry also voicing Brexit concern.

See our new ‘Priorities for Print', which were launched in July and are being used to lobby Government on your behalf.

We showcase our exciting new relationship with associate member, Canon, who printed this edition, and feature a discussion on the power of print and performance optimisation.

Finally, we are thrilled to announce the shortlist for the 2017 British Book Design & Production Awards. We were inundated with entries, and the judges had their work cut out to whittle the shortlist down to 82 books. Tickets to the Awards on 16 November in London are available now at We also look forward to seeing you at upcoming events including The Print Show, IPEX and The Power of Print Seminar.
