A new magazine highlighting the entire postpress marketplace will begin publication in January 2015. PostPress, from Peterson Publications, Topeka, KS, will combine the best of The Binding Edge and InsideFinishing magazines, said Managing Editor Dianna Brodine.
“The industry continues to diversify, with graphic finishers, binderies and commercial printers adding services to meet the full post-print needs of their customers,” she explained, adding that signaled the time was right for the two magazines to merge. “This move brings the readership of InsideFinishing and The Binding Edge into one publication to cover all aspects of decorating, binding and finishing technologies. The magazine can more fully dig into what will help our readers to be successful.”
The Binding Edge, which began publication in 2005, has been the official publication of BIA (formerly Binding Industries Association), while InsideFinishing has been the official magazine of the Foil & Specialty Effects Association since 1995. Both associations still will be represented in the new magazine.
