From the Editor: Turning Passions into Lucrative Print

How can your shop seek out print opportunities that you and your employees are especially excited about?

I’ve always loved to write, read, and edit. And I’m quite lucky in this digital day and age – where 140 characters is a news story – to have made a career out of my passion. But the wide-format digital print industry isn’t the only topic where I’m able to put this passion to work. I’m a bit of a foodie and travel enthusiast in my spare time, and as a freelancer I’ve been able to monetize those interests writing for independent restauranteur and adventure travel magazines. Why not do what you love, and make some money doing it?
