During these uncertain times many face difficult challenges, yet new opportunities abound. For the printing industry, there will be no new normal as we get past the COVID-19 pandemic. The habits of how print is bought and produced are irrevocably changing. The legacy business models of procuring print for the lowest cost per thousand pieces is being displaced by customers buying print only in the exact quantities they need, when they need it, with the expectation of 1-2 day delivery. This means that while print volumes will drop, the number of print jobs of micro- and short-runs will increase dramatically. Those jobs will have to be produced with fewer operators, since social distancing requirements are likely to remain well after a COVID vaccine becomes widely available. The only way to manage this is through more automation, and production inkjet is a critical link in managing these requirements. This leads to new opportunities, as the external and internal changes will enable the business model to change from a tactical to a value-add relationship between the customer and the print provider. In the end, those print providers who are able to adapt to these new business models will prosper, and will emerge out of this financially healthier than ever before.
