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.

Last week Jeff Hayes, Barb Pellow, and I had the pleasure of presenting at the Survive & Thrive conference, which was held at the Beijing International Hotel Conference Center in Beijing, China ahead of the China Print 2009 trade show.

Dscoop has 700 member companies on six continents and conducts an annual conference that has grown from about four hundred attendees in 2006 to more than 1,300 in 2009. The 2010 conference will be held in Dallas in February. Dscoop is also notably web-centric, having offered more than one hundred web seminars and supporting many web discussion forums for its members. In his comments preceding the announcement of Dscoop Asia Pacific, Alon Bar-Shany, Vice President of HP’s Indigo division, called the birth and rapid growth of Dscoop a highlight of his professional career, given how it came together in a very short period of time after a “difficult” situation involving the prior user group, the Indigo Customer Exchange (ICE).
