We asked the experts what 2018 has in store for the industry.
We asked seven of Big Picture's Editorial Advisory Board members to respond to the current state of the wide-format industry and reveal what we should expect in 2018.
Big Picture: What do you think we’ll see next year that we haven’t seen yet?
Robert Kissel, President, KDM P.O.P Solutions: More inline finishing capabilities. Anything, really, that helps us expedite the time to market for our retail customers.
Carmen Rad, Founderpreneur, CR&A Custom: In the case of equipment, I would expect a latex flatbed printer with white ink.
Jared Smith, CEO, bluemedia: We will see even higher customer demands on creative and conception, and even faster turn times. With competition at an all-time high, shops need to offer more than a print job, more than an install. Clients will need a true partner to bring them ideas and then to be able to execute at a very high level.
