This podcast explores the question: “Is Print Dead?” Print is everywhere, yet many people feel that print is dead - replaced by digital content, websites, online presentment, mobile apps and social media. We're big fans of all of that, but we suspect that print still has a long run. What do you think?

We have been collaborating in the world of print and customer communications for more than two decades. Join us as we explore the question Is Print Dead? from all angles -- where print thrives, where the opportunities and challenges are, and where print is likely to disappear.

The print that is dead is the print that doesn’t know me.
