A Review of 2014 Corporate Greeting Cards

Jim Hamilton
 Jan 9, 2015

This is the fifth year that I have done a video blog review of all the corporate greeting cards I received during the holiday season. This year’s collection includes InfoTrends’ own corporate greeting card, which was designed by the winner of the 2014 EDSF Charlie Corr Memorial Scholarship, Jessica Baratta. Jessica is a graduate student at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver. We were also very fortunate to have Mohawk provide the paper for the card, which has a rich beautiful feel because of the Mohawk Superfine Eggshell 120 cover that it’s printed on.

If you have an interesting greeting card you’d like to send me, my address is Jim Hamilton, 97 Libbey Industrial Parkway, Suite 300, Weymouth, Massachusetts 02189, USA

My trip to Dscoop9 was short — one day only — but fabulous. In the time I was there I saw a hilarious and thought-provoking keynote, spent hours on the show floor collecting print samples (see links to videos below), moderated a panel of innovative HP Indigo 10000 users, met with HP Indigo executives, and interviewed an HP “Graphics Influencer.”

Here are my take-aways from the day I spent at Dscoop9:

Konica Minolta Dealer Meeting 2013: Asking the Right Questions

Jim Hamilton
 Dec 5, 2013

There was an awkward moment in one of the conference sessions at Konica Minolta’s recent dealer meeting. Polly LaBarre, co-author of Mavericks at Work, was summing up her presentation and she asked listeners if they would promise to ‘walk into the office stupider, and ask more questions.’ Promoting stupidity seems like a losing proposition but the ‘asking questions’ part is right on the mark, and I think it is a good reflection of the way that Konica Minolta conducted its ‘Shape the Future’ event, which took place November 17-19 at the Venetian/Palazzo Resort in Las Vegas.

 Apr 19, 2012



In this video blog I discuss a print sample called the “Book of Possibilities” that was handed out at the recent Dscoop7 user conference. Created using HP Indigo technology, the sample book highlights a range of interesting special effects (such as white ink and raised printing) and substrates (including watercolor paper, pearlescents, and metallics). The piece was designed by Cipher Creative Group and paper was provided by GPA Specialty Substrate Solutions, Mohawk Fine Papers, NewPage, Finch, Sappi, and Neenah Paper.
