Noel Ward Appointed as Editor-in-Chief of packagePRINTING Magazine
North American Publishing Company has appointed Noel Ward as editor-in-chief of packagePRINTING, the monthly magazine that focuses on all aspects of printing tags and labels, flexible packaging, folding cartons and corrugated containers. The magazine is supplemented by a weekly electronic newsletter and a monthly web-based edition, videos, webinars and road shows.
“We are very excited to have Noel come on board to guide and direct the editorial content of packagePRINTING,” said Brian Ludwick, executive vice president and publisher. “His broad skill set, extensive printing industry experience and contacts will help ensure packagePRINTING remains the leading resource for print and packaging providers in these changing times.”
Ward has over 25 years experience in commercial and digital printing. He has been editor-in-chief of Desktop Publishers Journal, Print on Demand Business, Print on Demand Solutions, and OnDemand Journal. A long-time advocate of digital printing, Ward has provided industry-leading firms with marketing planning and research, video production, plus writing collateral materials, white papers, case studies and blogs.
“This is much more than a typical editor’s job where I herd words,” said Ward. “Magazine (publishers) that tell their stories through print, video, webinars and road shows engage readers in more ways. We’ll be using all these media to help printers select the best technology for each kind of job while keeping them in the loop on what we call the business, art and technology of packaging.”
