Company is awarded first honorable mention by Xplor International 

MELVILLE, N.Y. – Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced that its Designer’s Guide to Inkjet was awarded first honorable mention for Application of the Year by Xplor International, a worldwide association for technology users and suppliers in the digital document and customer communications industry. Their members are transactional and commercial printers who design, produce, and deliver high volumes of print. The Application of the Year Award and its honorable mentions are presented to an individual, a company, or an organization in recognition of “outstanding achievement in the imaginative application of current technology and/or unique implementation of existing document and communication systems.”

Canon Solutions America was acknowledged for its comprehensive resource created for agency and in-house designers that provides guiding principles, best practices, and real-world recommendations related to the world of designing for inkjet. Spread throughout many industries, this award further cements Canon Solutions America’s Designer’s Guide to Inkjet as a forward-thinking, purposeful tool designed to push the realms of inkjet technologies. 

“Chosen among a group of uniquely creative companies and individuals, Canon Solutions America showcased a progressive resource that will help further develop the world of digital inkjet production printing,” said Skip Henk, EDP, president and CEO of Xplor International. “Their Designer’s Guide to Inkjet is a great educational tool that is very much needed in the industry and deserving of this recognition.” 

Recognizing that most graphic designers are less exposed to production inkjet technology than to traditional toner and digital printing, Canon Solutions America assembled a team of leading inkjet technology experts to develop the most comprehensive and first of its kind industry resource for the designer community.  The guide, from its inception, has been a proven asset in both the designer and agency communities. Customers note that the breadth and scope of the guide have played an integral role in expanding the wealth of inkjet technology knowledge throughout the industry. 

Consisting of best practices, guiding principles, and first-hand inkjet recommendations, the award-winning resource offers its readers a surplus of industry insight that includes choosing the right color matching, images, media, proofing, workflows, and finishing techniques for both existing and emerging inkjet technology.  

“This award was made possible by the best and brightest team in the industry to ensure that our company helps our customers and our customers’ clients achieve continued success,” said Francis A. McMahon, vice president, Marketing, Production Print Solutions division of Canon Solutions America. “The Designer’s Guide to Inkjet is a reflection of our commitment to enhancing the industry and leading the movement of next-generation inkjet innovation.” 

The Guide is now available for Canon Solutions America customers through PressGo, the company’s business development portal.
