Print Issues

There are some people out there who say print media is dead. Those people can suck it.

Here at Ashcan we believe that while digital venues are the inevitable way of the future, print media should be recognized as an equally important part of the equation. There’s just a certain gravitas to having something you can hold, something you can touch and feel. Pressing a button just isn’t the same as turning a page, and as the old adage goes, “If it’s important enough to print, it’s important enough to read.”

These factors and more were the impetus behind our annual print editions.
