    Dear Santa (Bill Gates)

    Calvin Frost || November 20, 2015

  • Keep the change

    Calvin Frost || October 10, 2014
    Thursday at Labelexpo was a bit slower than Tuesday and Wednesday. It gave me a chance to walk the show and look for change, change that would affect our industry and make an impact. While Tuesday and Wednesday were exhilarating, it was a grueling 48…

    Calvin Frost || October 9, 2012
    Since I’ve been writing this column I’ve tried to follow a schedule of topics that I believe are important and interesting to our industry. I create the schedule late in the fall and as the year progresses gather information on a topic in…

  • Plant Safety: Who's in charge?

    April 11, 2011
    I was reminded recently by a reader that over the years I have tended to focus on the "E" of Environment, Health and Safety. I admit to that preoccupation. After all, the brand owner is our customer and is driving us to be focused on stewar…

    Did you know that 2011 is the year of the rabbit? In the Chinese calendar, if you were born in the year of the rabbit you are elegant, worship beauty, and carry messages of mercy to all with whom you have contact. I don't know about you, but the…

    Several weeks ago, I was so frustrated with the "I'm gonna do it" group. These are the people and companies that are forever proud of their future changes and achievements. The problem is that they never do it, they never make the changes. I was so f…
