B.L. Litho, a sheetfed commercial print shop with a history going back decades, filed for bankruptcy on September 5, only to have the company bought and relaunched a few days later, PrintCAN has learned. 

New owner Stephane Marcil said B.L. Litho ran into  financial difficulty and was forced to shutter its doors and lay off its 45 employees. Marcil, whose brother-in-law works at B.L. Litho, came in and bought the company in its entirety, though he hasn't yet taken possession of all the equipment. He expects that to happen in a couple of weeks.

Transcontinental is posting higher profitability in the third quarter. As revenues increased by 1.9% in the third quarter to $500.0 million from $490.7 million at the same time last year, its net earnings rose to $44.2 million from $30.1 million.

The improvements are mostly due to the company’s recent acquisitions: Capri Packaging and Sun Media Corporations’ weekly newspapers in Quebec, as well as new agreements in two operating sectors. However, the company quoted a softer advertising market, which affected revenue growth.

Adjusted earnings rose 11% to $58.3 million from $52.5 million due to the contribution from acquisitions, new printing and distribution agreements, and company-wide optimization of its cost structure and its printing platform. >> continued

When IKEA released its 2015 catalogue, the company decided to give it the Apple treatment and spoof the popular brand. You know those apple commercials, a representative sits against a white background and the camera zooms in on a set of hands playing with the latest gadget. Switch out the apple rep for IKEA’s Chief Design Guru Jörgen Eghammer and the latest tech for the 328-page catalogue, and you get a clever, tongue-in-cheek ad that’s already gone viral.

So what exactly do you get with your IKEA catalogue? Well the bookbook is pre-installed with thousands of home furnishing ideas. It contains 328 hi-definition pages; it's 8mm thin, and weighs less than 400 grams. One of its top selling features: an eternal battery that promises to stay fully charged until the end of time. What Smartphone can promise that?
