Bridging the Gap between Paper and Printing: A Perspective from the Paper Industry
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.1999.15.1.art00046_1  Published OnlineJanuary 1999

A movement to span the communication gap between papermakers and printers has begun. As printing technologies evolve and their demands get ever more specific, the need to narrow this gap becomes more critical. At present, there is not a robust flow of information between these two major industries. This lack creates needless waste and frustrated users. Unless and until some sort of communication channels can be established, these conditions will not change appreciably.This presentation outlines the first steps in the establishment of a program to develop this communication. Although the technical and logistical elements are numerous and complex, there is so much room for improvement that something valuable is almost certain to arise from the work.Printers need papermakers. They need them to make paper. They need them to understand the printer's requirements and specifications for jobs in this era of extreme specificity. They also need them to understand their problems and how they need to be addressed.
