On this occasion, we would like to ask you to share with us your opinion on the following questions: During the last twenty years, since 1998, what technological developments and market trends had the most impact on the label printing market? How does digital printing or trends like shorter runs, lower margins, higher automation levels and finally Industry 4.0 affect the narrow web print production? Take part on our survey on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of NarrowWebTech!

First intended as a supplement to the sister magazine Flexo & Gravure Global it soon developed into a “real” magazine.
