Other Reprographics-Industry-related Blogs that I'm aware of

I’m an older guy. That should make you fully aware that I’m somewhat “technically challenged” when it comes to setting up, using, or posting to a blog. I did want to mention on my blog that there are other blogs, either partly or totally dedicated to talking about the Reprographics business and industry, live and in color on the Web. Below, I’ve listed the ‘reprographics-industry-related’ blogs that I’m aware of. If you know of other blogs, ones that I’ve not mentioned below, I’d be happy to add them to this list. Please let me know.

The “Reprographics Industry” is a sub-industry within the much larger “Printing and Graphics Industry.” The Reprographics Industry is not well known by most people. (As an example, I was in the reprographics business for many years, and my wife still doesn’t know what I did for a living.) Although the reprographics industry primarily serves customers the A/E/C community (Architects, Engineers, Construction Companies, Real Estate Developers, etc.), companies in the reprographics industry also provide services that appeal to non-A/E/C customers.

In mentioning the blogs of others, please note: I am not including these blogs for promotional purposes, nor is my inclusion of these blogs on my blog an endorsement of the individuals or companies mentioned. Quite frankly, I expect that I will have very different opinions about most subjects. Without further adieu, here’s a list of the other ‘reprographics-industry-related’ blogs that I’m aware of:
