Bob has served as editor of In-plant Impressions since October of 1994. Prior to that he served for three years as managing editor of Printing Impressions, a commercial printing publication. Mr. Neubauer is very active in the U.S. in-plant industry. He attends all the major in-plant conferences and has visited nearly 170 in-plant operations around the world. He has given presentations to numerous in-plant groups in the U.S., Canada and Australia, including the Association of College and University Printers and the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association. He also coordinates the annual In-Print contest, co-sponsored by IPMA and In-plant Impressions.

In a new article by Cal Poly Professor and former in-plant manager Dr. Ken Macro, he focuses on 17th-century printer Joseph Moxon to help clarify the important role printers and publishers play today.

When Ken Macro began listing some of the available, affordable 3D printing technologies during his keynote at last year's Association of College and University Printers (ACUP) conference, many of those in the room sat up straight and listened. The Caly Poly department chair mentioned devices that sold for as little as $1,385, putting 3D printing technology within reach of in-plants.

I just returned from my 18th Association of College and University Printers conference. it was another great conference, bringing together managers from all over the country

Temperatures in Minneapolis cooled a bit on the second day of ACUP 2013, but the enthusiasm certainly did not. About 80 managers from 25 states and the U.K. are gathered in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” right now for the 48th annual Association of College and University Printers (ACUP) conference.

The Association of College and University Printers will make its first venture into the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” next month when its 48th annual conference takes place in Minneapolis, May 19-23. Hosted by Minnesota State University, Mankato and Gustavus Adolphus College, ACUP will feature a full agenda of educational sessions, as well as a vendor exhibit area and plenty of time to network with fellow higher-ed in-plant managers. The group will also tour the Print & Mail Operations of Minnesota State University, Mankato. Two keynote speakers will offer some interesting perspectives:

Xerox held another of its Thought Leadership Workshops in Rochester recently, this one dedicated to in-plants serving the public sector. About 30 in-plant managers attended, from organizations like Mississippi Department of Health, Syracuse University, Hobart & Smith College, University of Arkansas, Eagle County School District, Bank of Canada and others.
