Copresco President Steve Johnson's monthly column "Johnson's World" moves to Printing News magazine, Wide-Format & Signage, and WhatTheyThink.com in September.
The award-winning column that serves as a forum for his insights and thoughtful commentary about the state of today's graphic communications industry has been featured in American Printer, Quick Printing, Printing News, and most recently Printing Impressions.
"We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Steve's column back in WhatTheyThink's Printing News & Wide-Format & Signage editions," said Kelley Holmes, VP and Group Publisher. "He really brings a unique and valuable perspective to the industry."
"I really am looking forward to working with WhatTheyThink, because I’ve been reading it for so long," he said. "I have this reputation as a print cheerleader—and I am—but some people think that I am opposed to digital media. Nothing could be further from the truth."
