NAPL (Paramus, NJ) and PIA (Alexandria, VA) set up a joint committee to review business practices for the printing industry. The result is "Best Business Practices for the Printing Industry," currently posted on the members-only areas of both the NAPL and PIA/GATF websites (www.napl.org; www.gain.net).

"The new guidelines reflect the ongoing impact of digital technology on the industry as a whole," says NAPL president I. Gregg Van Wert. "Digital technology has had a tremendous effect on the ways that printers conduct business. The need for detailed information that identifies, defines and clarifies standard practices is correspondingly greater than ever."

The three-part best-practices guide includes suggestions for digital asset management issues, terms and conditions of sale and a basic glossary of the industry's most common workflow terms.
