In those days, most school bands played serious literature, but Harold and Roger had the unique ability because of their professional experience to arrange "popular" music for school bands.
Soon band directors across the US wanted their arrangements. They started to mimeograph copies and sell them. They realized that to successfully and legally! What they got on their trip was an education in publishing and the rights to "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now," one of the most popular songs of the day.

That method soon led to the first organ "benchpack," which featured instruction books and songbooks packaged in the bench of an organ. In the late s, The Pointer Systems for Guitar and Piano were produced, introducing millions of beginners to instant playing success.
In the mids, Hal Leonard began marketing band and choral music to educators by sending recordings of arrangements through the mail. This unique promotion is now used by virtually every print music publisher in the industry. This division soon outgrew the company, and Mardak became general manager for the entire company.
Shortly afterward, the Hal Leonard Guitar Method was launched, becoming one of the first methods to incorporate popular music. Today, this method is the leading guitar method in the world, having taught millions how to play guitar.
Hal Leonard continued to grow throughout the s, and in made the giant leap into popular music print publishing when it established a unique and very close relationship with Chappell Music, the world's largest music publisher.

Growth of these types of solutions will continue to grow in 2017. We expect to see significant demand from flexo printers for retrofit digital inkjet solutions.
Because these solutions utilize existing capital infrastructure, providers are able to add digital capabilities at a low cost of entry. An example of this is the Colordyne 3600 Series Retrofit, which is now also being sold by Mark Andy.
More growth will come from solutions that combine multiple applications in one system. The demand for inkjet solutions and this high level of product innovationwill continue into 2017 and beyond. Year in and year out, growth continues at around the five percent mark and it is the objective of all market players to exceed this organic growth rate by exploiting their particular competitive advantage.
Thermal transfer technology is now 30 years old and has reached maturity, yet still offers advantages that cannot be equalled: it is economic, reliable and clean. Today, low-cost operators are gaining a solid foothold in our industry but, as is always the case, they will quickly come up against their own limitations.
You just have to offset the anticipated gain from the printed label against the constraints and risks incurred: the outcome is clear and is a simple matter of common sense. At the end of the day, quality and service will come out on top whenever the solution is coherent, appropriate and offers a high level of performance.
All of Armor's most recently established transformation subsidiaries (India, Mexico and South Africa) confirm the value of proximity by producing remarkable penetration rates, and this is only the start. To this can be added moving upmarket into niche applications, where the search for added value is the logical counterbalance to low-cost approaches. We must find new applications which are more demanding, more captive and more profitable, all of which will enhance the market as a whole.
Each year our volumes increase and our carbon footprint reduces as new fields of activity open up: it is this very virtuous circle that motivates us to maximise performance. Although 30 years old now, thermal Ttransfer technology still has a number of cards to play and ARMOR will continue to demonstrate its commitment via investment, innovation and new sites throughout the world.
We anticipate label producers working more closely with their ink partners not only to achieve optimum print quality but also to help increase production efficiencies, reduce waste, minimize press downtime and increase overall profitability. Demonstrating this trend, industry interest in our PureTone inks as part of a total color management concept has been unprecedented, not just in the UK but worldwide.
We also see exciting potential for premium laser-markable coding as brand owners, retailers and label printers seek solutions to overcome current challenges faced in the quest for premium printed variable data. In partnership with DataLase, and as its preferred narrow web ink partner, our new UV flexo coating, PureCode, has been formulated to provide superior marking on the finished label. Another example of product development providing a value-added solution for brand owners and label printers alike.
Recently accredited with the world-recognized Investors in People Standard, Pulse Roll Label Products continues to build a skilled and experienced team. This means that simply by scanning a product or label with a smartphone, people get access to tailored information.
This is part of the consumer trend where people increasingly expect to engage with brands whenever they want to and to obtain extra, personalized value from a product. A clear example is QR codes, which are making a comeback, albeit in a different way than when they became popular with consumers five years ago. But technology has moved on and other triggers can be used for scanning by consumers as well: Digimarc Barcodes (imperceptible digital watermarks), good-old EAN barcodes, RFID and NFC tags, and also image recognition.
In 2017 this trend will spread and brands will start to use these triggers as a new marketing channel to their customers. This is further fuelled by digital presses that allow for labels and packaging with individual codes (visible or invisible). But we need to see more and quicker action if the tidal wave of Chinese counterfeit goods flooding onto the market is to be checked, let alone stopped. More needs to be done to tackle the problem and this might include increased integration of holograms in China as part of brand protection strategies.
The Chinese cannot defeat counterfeiting on their own, so collaboration with the likes of the IHMA, and what we offer in terms of helping China to tackle counterfeiting, has to be a welcome priority.
International communication, open-mindedness and closer collaboration will be beneficial as we move forward, helping us to tackle and solve this problem together. We launched four brand new products this year and dramatically increased the pace of our innovation. The results of this have set us on a course to better meet the needs of our customers today, but importantly, tomorrow too. We have some amazing products and technology in development.
We recognize that, while we have market-leading solutions, we have opportunities to increase customer value and help them solve other business issues. This recognition has led us to broaden our approach, solidify our focus for 2017, and focus on solutions that help customers improve their entire workflow, rise above their competition and satisfy brand owners.
Digital is a key strategic focus for us. Historically, companies viewed labeling as a background process.
