Here's to reviving this dead board...

This is what caught my eye while looking through the Q3 report released today:

- Net sales increased 3% from a year ago.
- Gross margins increased from 18% to 20% (a 16% increase) since last year.
- The increase in gross margins and sales are both due to the decorating solutions segment and not the packaging services segment.
- LABL updated its credit agreement, which now allows for an increased line of credit (20m to 45m) and for a common stock dividend.

All of the above has strenghtened my confidence in LABL's fundamentals, but I would like to learn more about the difference between the two segments, why the decorating solutions segment is growing faster, and whether this is good or bad for the company's future. Anyone have any thoughts?
