YOUR PUBLISHER NEEDS YOU!

I have been publishing IT Enquirer since 2000, keeping all content on it free. As a freelance author for 12 magazines and a consultant for various companies, I could just about afford doing that. However, in the past two years I have had to deal with companies like Pion.tv who didn’t pay for my work, and with freelance assignments decreasing from 12 to 1 (yes ONE) a month. The result is that IT Enquirer should now become my — sole — source of income.

I have therefore decided to start charging for content. I will try keep new reviews free for one day. After that, you will be asked to contribute a small fee to pay for the bills.

I will need to raise at least 4,000 Euros by mid-August, which is why I have also decided to sell one of my other domains, Agile Creator, a recent start-up. Agile Creator is a ready-made business with content for sale for usage in blogs, marketing collateral, and with a licence that allows you to do anything with it you want. I cannot afford to wait until this domain starts generating business. If you buy it, you’ll get a year’s worth of my content to sell for free.

NOTE: If I can’t raise the €4K by mid-August, I’m afraid it will be over and out for IT Enquirer, and this time it will be for good. Godspeed to you all.

EFI expands innovation with UltraDrop 7 greyscale technology

This year’s Fespa Digital sees EFI drive forward its wide- and superwide-format inkjet production leadership with UltraDrop 7pL grayscale print head technology on its VUTEk GS series printers. EFI’s high-volume UV-inkjet press, the VUTEk HS100 Pro, will feature full automation and a material edge guide (MEG) system. The company’s exhibit at the May 20-23 tradeshow also has the European debut of the new EFI H1625 LED printer – the first LED device in the entry-level EFI Wide Format printer line – and the EFI VUTEk GS3250LXr Pro roll-fed printer.

Transitioning from solvent to UV

For Larsens Inc., a 40-year-old Santa Cruz, California (USA) firm that is a leading manufacturer of canopies used for racing and marketing events, consistency, quality and productivity are key. The family-owned business has a strong reputation built on word-of-mouth referrals, and its customers include leading auto industry manufacturers and some of auto racing’s elite teams, such as NHRA drag-racing team John Force Racing.

The role of ink in the quality equation

When you hear EFI large-format users describe the rigorous process they’ve employed when selecting a new printer, they talk about print speed, output quality, media flexibility, colour-management software and environmental benefits, but seldom do you hear anyone talk about the ink…as if it made little or no difference to the final outcome…when in fact, it makes all the difference.
