Crain’s Top Forty Under 40: Columbus Woodruff

Crain’s Top Forty Under 40: Columbus Woodruff

Get to know your printer a bit better. Things are pretty exciting around Hotcards today. For one thing, Columbus' profile in Crain's Top Forty Under 40 has been published – article AND video. Check it out here. For another thing, the Crain's reception for this year's inductees is tonight, which means a bunch of people are going to be saying nice things and making a big deal about our head boss-guy, just like we do all day around Hotcards! It's nice for people to have a chance to get to know Columbus better. For example, maybe you didn't know that Columbus is an avid cyclist. In the coming year, we're hoping to do a lot of printing for cycling organizations and retailers. It's definitely an industry that does a lot of bold, exciting full color printing, and that's what Hotcards does best! As usual, we're also excited about doing lots of work with local businesses, especially when that printing helps […]

Print CEO Recognized By Crain’s Top 40

And this year, Hotcards' very own head boss-guy, Columbus Woodruff, is on the list. The issue of Crain's containing this feature comes out November 17th. In-depth profiles of these rising stars in business will also be on the Crain's website, along with photos and video. In fact, Columbus just spent an afternoon with Crain's doing the photo-shoot and getting some video recorded. I'm sure he was very charming and insightful, as usual. While he was there, he also got interviewed for an unrelated piece being done on political printing and campaign advertising which, as you may know, is a particular specialty of ours here at Hotcards. Looking over the list of last year's featured businesspeople, I've got to wonder if any of them are as involved in Cleveland's business community as Columbus. The cool […]

The Future of the Printing Industry

The Future of the Printing Industry

I've been told that the future of the printing industry somehow involves the CEO of Hotcards blogging about the future of the printing industry, so here it goes… People are always asking me where the printing industry is headed. They do it almost slyly, like they know what my answer will be. But I like to try to surprise them. Instead of saying that the internet is driving printers out of business, I always say that the printing industry is headed where many other industries are headed…. ONLINE! I'm what you would call a gadget guy. I used to go to Best Buy and Micro Center a couple times a week to go purchase whatever is hot and new at the stores. Now, I only go to those stores a couple times a month because I choose to do more shopping online. Printers can use the web to get in touch with huge marketplaces and offer customers streamlined solutions just […]
