As we all "get back in the saddle" for 2013, I thought I would point out two interesting print-related news tidbits that have come to my attention the first few days of the New Year. (And if this indicates my inordinate amount of time monitoring my Twitter feed and scanning Google News headlines, you might be on to something - but the year of work has to start somewhere!)
The first was this from Venture Beat, in an article by Meghan Kelly about Polaroid's new Fotobars (see "Polaroid ‘Fotobars’ print Instagram pics on metal, wood, and other materials"). Kelly's article is upbeat and a fun read, as she plays off her apprehension about something like this possibly being "cool and hip". The retail outlets begin opening in February, per the article, and I look forward to visiting one in 2013 - their short list of planned stores doesn't include Boise (surprise!) but of the four locations mentioned (Delray Beach, Fla., New York, Las Vegas, and Boston), I should be around one of them in the coming 12 months.
