Vancouver Island Brewing of Victoria, B.C., recently raised greater awareness for the population decline of British Columbia’s southern resident killer whales (SRKW) and its own company brand through an eye-catching, limited-edition promotional pack of beers. Unlike other resident communities, the SRKW is only one clan that consists of three pods or family groups. Dubbed the Pod Pack, the mix pack consisted of four different beers, each one created in collaboration with a different local brewery on Vancouver Island and named after a specific animal in the critically endangered SRKW population.

Aperol – an Italian bittersweet aperitif – recently announced the celebration of its centenary at a press conference in Padova, Italy, the birthplace of the brand. Launched in 1919 at the Padua International Fair, the bright orange beverage was created by brothers Luigi and Silvio Barbieri, who coined the brand name with inspiration from the French term for aperitif, Apéro. Made with citrus oil infused with herbs and roots, the original recipe remains unchanged to this day.
Security printers get paid more for their products than other commercial printers — a minimum increase of 10 percent but maybe as high as 15 or 20 percent more, according to U.S.-based security printing consultant Richard D. Warner. “Usually it takes a big financial investment and a lot of time – at least a good couple of years – and a lot of trial and error for a commercial printer to get up to speed with security printing. They rely heavily on outside technology suppliers, who will help them, but it is still a big jump for the printer. They’ve got to be committed to do it.”
