To commemorate its 30th anniversary, Xeikon will be launching a book entitled, PrintPastFuture, chronicling the 25-year history of digital printing.

Written by industry experts Laurel Brunner and Ed Boogaard, the book engages with a broad range of people that have been closely involved with print’s digital journey in various ways. They said, ‘We have talked to great entrepreneurs who often have been pioneers in digital print and are still pushing the boundaries. And industry pundits such as Frank Romano, Andy Tribute and Kurt Wolf have helped us to put things in a broader perspective.’

Danny Mertens, corporate communications manager for Xeikon, added, ‘We hope both the blog and now the book will be beneficial to those who are relatively new to the industry, and a walk down memory lane for veterans who have been around for a while.’

‘Writing down these stories and reading through historical publications, we have once again been impressed by what has been achieved in only 25 years – but even more so by what the future may still bring to this industry. Our book is to mark this important moment in time and celebrate print,’ said the authors, ‘As print’s digital journey continues, we invite all people from the industry to join us: please visit the ongoing PastPrintFuture-blog and keep contributing your experiences, stories and pictures.’
