Founded in the 1970s by John Seybold, the Seybold Report (ISSN: 1533-9211) is a business-to-business newsletter with a long history and a strong tradition of serving its readers by delivering detailed and objective information and reviews of graphic arts technology, as well as informed and intelligent commentary about such technology.

In addition, in 2019 the IEEE organization published a series of articles in its journal about the history of desktop publishing. An entire edition is devoted to the history of Seybold Seminars and Seybold Publications. Please click here to access the issue abstract and learn more about the issue.
In June 2010 the Joss Group, a publishing and consulting company located in Pennsylvania, acquired the newsletter.
