TORONTO—Exhibitors at the recent Print World trade show and conference in Toronto reported strong sales, with at least one reporting it was its "best show ever."

That comment was from PDS Pressdown, while Sydney Stone also placed several "sold" signs on its equipment. Therm-O-Type, Deposit Photos, Docuplex Printing, Technifold, International Binding & Laminating Systems, EFI Proofing Solutions and TAS Films were just some of the many others reporting success at the show.

Some vendors returned after a long absence from the show and enjoyed heavy traffic at their booths. Two examples are NOR-AM Graphic Equipment and Treck Hall, showing off new equipment and wide format supplies respectively.

Larger booths at the show were a heavy draw this year, and included Ricoh, Oce, KBA, KBR and Epson.


The show was well-attended

Meanwhile, The "Twitterverse" was on fire about Print World, with Spicers Canada tweeting "great Print World show this year" and Tracy Ta, a Graphics Communication Management student at Ryerson University, tweeting "such an awesome day at Print World."
