PRINT BUYERS ONLINE & PCPI TO CONSOLIDATE:
Some of you may be aware that we've recently launched a new PCPI that offers better organization of materials, more automation of renewals/receipts, etc. and a more stable platform. If you haven't seen it, go here. For the most part, I am loving the new system. There are a few minor annoying things that I'm working on fixing - such as the application form only let's you select one type of print product that you buy ($%*^!! - sigh). But two factors lead me to a big decision: the overwhelming good results of our new PCPI and the fact that the industry slow-down has dramatically decreased our resources, I will be consolidating PBO and PCPI in early 2014. We simply do not have the resources that we did in our heyday to continue all the free services for print buyers and suppliers. I am dedicated to keeping PBO and PCPI going to meet the needs on print buyers and I hope that you can support us at some level. If you are not a member of PCPI, I will be asking you to switch your free membership to PBO to a paid membership to PCPI in the coming weeks.
