Letters to the Editor
I am writing this long overdue acknowledgement to you in appreciation for all your efforts and your publication's on behalf of in-plant printers. It was with great pleasure I read your recent articles on the Association of College and University Printers and the International Publishing Management Association conferences, both held in Philadelphia this spring. Your support for those of us behind the scenes is invaluable. Your feature on the University of Delaware's outstanding achievement was a well-deserved special tribute to Rodney Brown and his staff.
Thank you for your editorials that keep our value in the forefront of your magazine. I hope you will continue to be a strong voice in our community for many years to come.
Director, Duplicating Services
I am sure that you have been bombed with e-mails on your article in the March issue of In-Plant Graphics on "The Kinko's Threat." It wasn't long after that article came out that our school district was contacted by Kinko's [Now FedEx Kinko's]. They wanted to do an analysis on the Hopkins School District and our in-plant facility. With a new director of Business Services in place and the school board wanting him to take a look at our Print Services department anyway, the timing was almost eerie.
If you have enjoyed—or taken issue with—a particular story in IPG, let us know. E-mail the editor at:
So, Kinko's came in and spent a day and a half looking at our organization and getting all of the information that they needed to prepare their study. Once they gathered their information they went back to punch the numbers and see how much they could save our district.
