About LeadingPRINT

A brand new content program from APTech, LeadingPRINT (LP) is for the progressive print executive. Built to support the success of our members and promote overall positive industry outcomes, LeadingPRINT aims to inspire and educate the brightest minds within the printing supply chain.

We believe innovation in the printing industry must not only come from the technology you purchase and deploy, but from the forward-looking business models you develop. So, we decided to focus our efforts on showing industry members “how” to achieve success, rather than just telling you “what” you need to do.

LeadingPRINT is our new content platform that shares entrepreneurial stories of the printers transforming their businesses, expert advice from outside the industry and strategic-based content that will guide you to prosperity.

LeadingPRINT is not a trade magazine, a buyer’s guide or a trade show. It is a content platform that inspires through multiple vehicles. LeadingPRINT magazine, the “LeadingPRINT CEO Summits,” LP podcasts, and our LP Online digital strategy will all be utilized to explain “how” you can succeed in an ever-changing landscape.

LeadingPRINT is about looking forward. The businesses we have today are not the same as they were a few years ago. The future is an uncertain place, but LeadingPRINT will help lead the way.
