Cygnus Business Media has announced that veteran printing industry editor, Mark Vruno, has rejoined Quick Printing, Printing News, Wide-Format Imaging, InkJet’s Age, and MyPRINTResource.com as Editor of Quick Printing. The media brands reach and serve 77,000+ commercial, sign, and digital printers.
“The printing and graphics industry is transitioning to an integrated print model that shows marketers real-time analytics and response rates using signage and print as a driving force,” says Publisher Kelley Holmes. “Mark has more than two decades of knowledge behind him, specifically in this market, which will allow him to not only provide in-depth stories, but also be forthcoming in trends, reliability and viability. Karen Hall, former Editor for Quick Printing, has accepted a position outside the industry that will offer her a new set of opportunities. We appreciate the dedication and professionalism she showed in her 23 years of service and wish her the best in all of her future endeavors.”
Vruno, a Chicago-based business publishing professional, has reported on the global commercial print industry for more than 20 years, most recently as editor of Printing News in 2011 and as a contributor to MyPRINTResource and lead writer of the PRINT13 Official Show Daily publication. Before becoming executive editor of Graphic Arts Monthly and Graphic Arts Online 10 years ago, Vruno had spent several years in marketing, public relations and corporate communications, working for such firms as RR Donnelley, Banta, Agfa, and Fujifilm Graphic Systems USA.
“The Quick Printing brand, which was a small-shop staple for decades, has evolved and expanded over the past two years to include the larger commercial and digital print markets,” says Vruno. “I welcome the opportunity to develop richer content in multiple media formats: online, via video and webcasts and, of course, in print -- whatever it takes to help our diverse readers and print service providers of all sizes to keep up with technology and do their jobs better.”
