J.F. Moore joins International Printers Network
TORONTO—One of the benefits of joining the International Printers Network (IPN) is the sharing of knowledge, said the president of J.F. Moore Communications in Toronto.

Dean Baxendale said his company is now the only Canadian member of the 200-location worldwide network since joining recently. The IPN helps cut down on distribution costs for members; printers can send digital files to another printer across the globe for quick turnaround on printing and delivery.

But aside from job sharing, another benefit is knowledge sharing with industry members and manufacturers, he said.

"We meet two times a year throughout the year [including a meeting this weekend in Rochester, NY]," said Dean Baxendale. "What we gain is insights well ahead of implementation by manufacturers like Heidelberg, Xerox ... we get exposed to new technologies and advances they're trying to bring to the marketplace."

Another goofy network, waste of time, how much business do you really need to outsource ? Digital print is usually quick enough to do it same day, and an overnight fed ex does the trick. Besides, i dont want to put my valued customers in the hands of someone else..no control over colour/quality etc...This is like many other organizations, sounds good for a pitch, but It's a waste in my humble opinion. Better things to do with my time.
