Microsoft have now booked a stand (64) at Digital Print World. This is a new stage in the integration of print and corporate IT.
So far not booked are IBM and Macromedia.
IBM have announced a new range of Infoprint kit aimed at a 'data centre' but with speeds that could compare with some instant print sites.
Freehand was mentioned in the Pintweek review of Adobe's Creative Suite by Simon Eccles. It remains a good option for page layout but somehow Macromedia never gets round to turning up at a hard copy event.
