Shouldn’t be too tough a transition. Mark Spaulding, former editor of Reed Business Information‘s now-defunct printed-packaging industry title Converting, has been made editor in chief of the Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators’ forthcoming Converting Quarterly, Folio: reports:
The print edition of the magazine will carry a 15,000 circulation. A weekly e-newsletter called Converting Quarterly E-News is expected to be sent to 7,500.
Topeka, Kansas-based niche magazine publisher Peterson Publications will provide advertising circulation, design, production, printing and mailing support for the magazine. Petersonâ€™s other publications include InsideFinishing, Plastics Decorating and The Binding Edge.
Spaulding had been at Converting as editor in chief for 15 years. Converting Quarterly is expected to roll out in February of next year. He writes on his blog, The Converting Curmudgeon:
Let me introduce our team of columnists: Dr. Charles Bishop (vacuum web coating), Dr. Edward Cohen (solution coating),
Dr. Eldridge M. Mount (extrusion-coating, film manufacturing and vacuum metallizing), Dr. David R. Roisum (web handling) and David Rumson (slitting/rewinding and finishing). They will write about technology, methods, new product development and troubleshooting in their specific areas of expertise. For the print features, weâ€™ll accept submissions from converters, academia and the supplier community. Content will be technical and noncommercial in nature.
