Spindrift Unchained!

Dear Reader,

After twelve years we have finally managed to get our journal online making it available to all comers. For too long we have stuck with an outmoded publishing model and expected our subscribers to be happy with a monthly PDF. We’ve long known that a monthly diet of news and analysis, feature articles and miscellaneous content is out of sync with information expectations in the online age. We long known it, but we’ve also long tried to avoid it because it has been a massive change for us as writers and for Digital Dots as publisher.

With this new site we hope to keep Spindrift readers up to date with news summaries, longer news analyses when the need arises and indepth feature articles. Be aware that this is not a cut and paste site and it is not an ad platform. Please don’t expect to find every press release to do with printing and publishing posted here because we only publish what we consider to be important and of interest to our readers.

We do not aim to deliver what you can find elsewhere. Our objective is to deliver comments, thoughts and hopefully insights that might help you to develop your own ideas for how to grow your business.

So if you work in the graphic arts industry as a printer, publisher, ad agency or designer, we hope you will find stuff to intrigue you on Spindrift.click. Hopefully our content will be engaging enough that you will want to subscribe. We intend to keep on doing what we have been doing since 2003, unleashed from the confines of PDF delivery and the constraints of a monthly publishing schedule.



The invaluable source for critical coverage and in-depth analysis of prepress and digital printing technologies

Spindrift.click, like its monthly PDF predecessor takes no advertising. However without the stalwart support of three companies Spindrift would not have been possible. We thank Agfa, Fujifilm and Esko for supporting our subscription model so generously since Spindrift’s inception way back in 2003. We wouldn’t be here without you.
