“Zagging while others Zig”

AI, Machine Learning, the inevitable march of the digital revolution: Many industry commentators see these topics as the antithesis of the printed word, placing printing presses and the rest of the industry on the wrong side of history.

While this view isn’t short on short-term margin generating opportunities – consolidation, lights off printing, marketing for an older demographic – one group of marketeers suggest an even bolder view of printed media should be considered: In a world of ‘screen time’ saturation and choice overload, it is the printed message that has the power to be most powerful, disruptive and – counter intuitively – digitally integrated marketing channel.
