Inprint Issue 52
December 2017/January 2018

In this issue of Inprint we focus on those that have been making an impact throughout 2017.

Printing Outlook reports a pick-up in output, though printers' forecasts for Q4 remain subdued (pp10-11). We've outlined our top five cost-saving services to help you kick off 2018 with a more positive frame of mind (pp14-15).

It's been an extremely busy year for our Training department, guiding members through the changes to apprenticeship standards and funding, introducing a wide range of engaging initiatives, and celebrating the numerous successes of our learners, including award winners and our first Masters graduates (pp18-19).

Following on from our focus on investment in issue 51 of Inprint, we introduce Begbies Traynor Group, which is perfectly positioned to advise members on a variety of funding options available to businesses such as asset-based lending, private equity and venture capital (p4).

We discuss how to improve workplace transport safety (p5) and the need for Local Exhaust Ventilation (p8). The prickly topic of performance management is discussed on page 6 and we highlight the potential legal hangover you could find yourself in following your Christmas party on page 7.

Turn to page 12 to see what happened when a Member of Parliament visited one of our members and find out how you can do the same.

Pages 20-21 showcase the amazing winners of the 2017 British Book Design & Production Awards held on 16 November in London. We also provide you with a review of the recent Power of Print Seminar and invite you to join us at Carols for Printers for festive drinks in London on 12 December (pp28-29).

Everyone at the BPIF wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
