A time for reflection, ambitious plans and plenty of success – that’s what I wish you!



An exciting year, during which a lot has happened, is now drawing to a close. At a readership of nearly 3000, my blog, www.beyond-print.de/archive, has become very popular and gotten a firm foothold in the market, not just in German-speaking countries, and that’s down to you valued Beyond Print fans. Current market developments, interviews with major online players, trends and specific solutions provided by smaller market players were all important topics and they characterized 2015. We will be keeping you updated in our usual temperamental way next year too and I will be keeping my nose to the ground and continue to dig out current market trends and developments.

My blog is now shutting up shop for this year and I should like to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas, a bit of time just to slow down, as well as bags of success and above all courage in 2016 – the courage to get stuck in and chart a new course.

On that note, kind regards from Bernd Zipper.
