The Joss Group owns and publishes the Seybold Report, a well-known and well-respected newsletter about the technologies used in the graphic arts (as well as the printing and publishing) industries. The Joss Group acquired this newsletter in May 2010, but the roots of the publication go back to the 1950s.
The Joss Group also owns and publishes other paid newsletters including the monthly Digital Publishing Report newsletter, which contains content related to the technology needed for digital publishing and also information, news, and analysis related to the business issues and challenges related to digital publishing.
Another monthly paid newsletter is the Specialty Printing Report, which, as its name implies, is all about printing not done on plain paper such as textile printing and 3-D printing.
The Joss Group also publishes other materials including white papers, books, and special reports.
Periodically, the Joss Group conducts conferences, training, and networking events for graphic arts professionals. We also consult with executives and other graphic arts professionals interested in learning more about technology and business issues related to evaluating, acquiring, and implementing graphic arts technologies and running graphic arts-related businesses.
The Joss Group is a woman-owned, woman-managed company.
