Despite threats of the Delta variant and some renewed masking regulations, events are persisting, schools are preparing to open (at the time of writing), and in-person trade shows are in full swing. On the flip side, we're still feeling some bumps from the initial pandemic wave. While orders are flowing in at the speed of light, many shops continue to experience supply chain and employment challenges. For graphics businesses, this means that now is more important than ever to have production and workflow processes dialed in. It's not enough to have your equipment set up and running — the placement of each piece of machinery is crucial to efficiency. Even something as small as software that helps with accounting and finances plays an important role in your shop run- ning at peak performance. From screen printing equipment to shop software, to wrap design hacks, this month's issue helps you hone every production process. From point A to point Z, use this information to tighten your practices and overcome the challenges your shop faces. We can't see into the future, so the best thing we can do is be prepared. Have everything in place, run at maximum efficiency, and keep pushing the boundaries. BE PREPARED
