Walsworth Publishing decided to celebrate its 75th year in business by helping to ensure that the printing industry has a lasting legacy. While this blog has previously mentioned the struggles that newspapers and other businesses based on print face, there is still a need and desire for physical product.

In a company press release, Walsworth announced that it would be sponsoring 75 scholarships for local students to attend the upcoming JEA/NSPA Fall National High School Journalism Convention in San Antonio.

According to the National Scholastic Press Association website, the convention offers learning sessions, high-profile keynotes, problem-solving breakouts, hands-on workshops and discussion groups.

“Walsworth is honored to provide this opportunity for 75 high school journalism students. The JEA/NSPA convention is a wonderful learning experience and a chance for these students to further pursue their love of journalism and yearbooks,” Don Walsworth, the publishing company’s president, said in the press release. “It all tied in perfectly with our 75th anniversary celebration.”

A love of journalism and yearbooks will be fed even further when the physical product is professional in appearance and well-made. Teenagers will want to remember their high school experience. As such, laminating machines for schools along with quality yearbook covers are a necessity for educational institutions. This way, the final product will be polished and made to stand the test of time.

In addition to pushing the print industry forward, there has also been a recent call for more cost-effective printing. For example, Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), a non-profit organization providing sustainability certification in the graphic communications industry, just announced its “Take Action” campaign.

As reported in the company press release, members of the graphics industry are encouraged to reap the benefits of environmentally friendly printing options. These tactics can be highlighted when businesses invest in laminating machines, which can help organizations save on printing by preserving important documents and images.
