  • Printing in Hong Kong and China 2021: All Our Coverage

    While the publishing industry had a relatively stable 2020 and a pretty sunny 2021 thus far, we are definitely not out of the woods yet, not with the mutating virus around. For Hong Kong/China print manufacturers, pandemic-induced challenges outside of their control are hampering the efforts to deliver the final goods to their clients.

    Spiraling costs of raw materials, freight, logistics, and procurement due to pandemic-related restrictions have resulted in soaring prices

  • Deciding Between Wet and Digital Proofs

  • Artron Focuses on Art Books and Digital Printing

    The last time 'PW' wrote about Artron was in 2016, soon after it completed Peter Lik’s epic 'Equation of Time', a 528-page large-format photography book that was printed digitally on a Screen TruePress Jet SX inkjet press. Since then, the company’s digital/on-demand printing business and machinery lineup have grown significantly.

There is clearly a lot of pent-up market demand to meet.”

  • Leveraging Close Collaborations at Jade Productions

    Working around pandemic-induced constraints has been keeping Jade Productions managing director Ken Kong busy. With cross-border travel restrictions still in place, his team is unable to visit factories in mainland China to supervise the manufacturing process. And while the pandemic is largely under control within Hong Kong, with most workers having returned to the office, Kong and his team continue to limit the number of visits to business partners.

  • A Selection of Amazing Projects

But non-disclosure agreements often put the kibosh on discussions that PW is interested in having about the intricacies involved in such projects or the approval process, tedious as it is, for a specific book, which somehow gets lost in the urgency to create and deliver the next project.
