Welcome to the June/July issue of Inprint, our summer edition. Hopefully we’ll get plenty of sun this year because this issue reflects celebration, positivity and coming together. We are delighted to be able to host in-person events again, and have a number of them coming up. On page 4, we give you some networking tips to help get back into the swing of things. These might come in handy as we all congregate after two years to celebrate our Members’ Day in London. I hope to see you there, networking on the terrace at the House of Lords on 6 July. More information on this can be found on page 20.
Our Priorities for Print document is launching very soon, laying out the current concerns on key issues facing the industry and the actions we believe need to be taken by government to address these. More on this on page 12.
It’s vital to keep communicating with others in the industry, especially during a time when we are facing cost increases and general uncertainty. We continue to focus on our Communities of Interest and the importance of engagement and collaboration. There are numerous sector-specific communities you can join (page 18). One of these is our Special Interest Group BPIF Labels, which has a new General Manager. We speak to Simon on page 14 where he tells us about his plans for the year ahead.
Finally, we are calling for you to enter the British Book Design & Production Awards. Be sure to enter your fantastic books if you want to get the recognition you deserve (page 22). More on our events can be found on page 28. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this issue. I look forward to seeing you all soon.
