Who would have thought a year ago that 2022 would be a year in which everything changes in such a brutal way? All the more reason for us to wish you a quiet and, above all, peaceful Christmas, happy holidays with your loved ones and plenty of renewed energy for the start of the new year.
The past year was dominated by the war in Ukraine and all the consequences that this has also had for us. The printing industry is energy-intensive, both in the operation of the machines and in terms of paper production. So all print stores, large and small, had to deal with two problems in equal measure. But the good news is: the majority of print shops have overcome these challenges as well! As an industry, we can be justifiably proud of having mastered this year!
At Christmas, everything is now coming to a standstill momentarily. Time to reflect, time to take a deep breath, time to recharge our batteries. That is what we at zipcon and beyond-print will do now – and we wish you all the same! Take a rest and gather new confidence for all that 2023 has in store for us – personally, socially and economically. Let us enter the new year together with confidence.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our readers, partners and customers for the trust they have placed in us, for your loyalty to beyond-print and your valuable feedback on our work. We are now saying goodbye to you during the Christmas break, and we will take a few more days after New Year’s Eve before we return to the latest topics on Beyond Print with all our energy.
Stay healthy and stay confident!
Yours truly, Bernd Zipper & the entire zipcon team
