Is there common ground between financial printing and social media marketing?

Kitty St. Sauveur has proof there is

As the printing industry continues to reach for the oxygen mask, one of South Boston's print production mainstays is feeling pretty good. Why? If the world's love affair with electronic media is pulling the plug on printing presses everywhere, how come Alliance Print's Kitty St. Sauveur is smiling?

"We invite marketing and sales executives to visit our new Alliance Media Forum in beta test and tell us what they think," she said. "As businesses continue to look at the exciting efficiencies offered by online communications vehicles, most of us in the more traditional manufacturing industries know that we must adapt or...
