Good points all. As a teaching, trying to explain prepress to design students, it's always fun to show them the kinds of things that print can do that they can't do on their computer screen. Whether it's out-of-gamut spot colors like metallics or florescents, to fancy finishes like die cuts, folds, embossing, foils, varnishes and finishes, it's a revelation to these young people that there are design elements beyond what they can see and do on a computer.

As a former typesetter, of course, there's a typo in the sixth word. It should be teacher.

Frank:
The Print Delivers seminar that Think Patented co-hosted with The Print Council is part of a national seminar series produced by The Print Council and our sponsors. We have presented in 10 cities---including NYC, Dallas, Chicago, Minneapolis---with more to come this year in LA, Seattle, etc.

Our expert presenters demonstrate what print can do for media and marketing specifiers through case studies and relevant research from Print in the Mix. They showcase how print integrates with digital/online media and explain the facts about the sustainability of paper and print.

The Print Council and our sponsors work hard to tell the story of the effectiveness of print by supporting Print in the Mix clearinghouse, presenting the Print Delivers seminars, developing print collateral for the print community.

It has always been our mission to provide tools to print providers and to reach out to media and marketing specialists who make media buy decisions to be sure they have the information they need to keep print front and center...and in the mix.

We hope that you will come to one of the Print Delivers events soon!

Joanne Vinyard
Director, The Print Council

Designers: Are You Designing with "Considerate Color"?

Published: February 16, 2018

Cal Poly Professor Brian Lawler explains what designers should be thinking about to serve the needs of those who don't see color the same way most of us do. He recommends a process for using "considerate color" that allows the people with color vision defects to still see contrast and tonal difference in colors selected for graphic projects such as roadmaps and charts where color itself is a factor in understanding the content. He mentions specific tools designers can use to accomplish this.

Art, Photography and Print: A Winning Combination for Christopher Campbell

Published: February 13, 2018

Christopher Campbell, a lifelong photographer and artist, explains how he blends these two passions to not only create great art, but to capture his unique artwork with a camera, generating a printed image that is almost indistinguishable from the original. He sees this as a remarkable moment in history: digital printers have such a large color gamut and can do so much, cameras now capture such high resolution, and color science has come to a point where ordinary people can profile a camera and a printer, and make these things.
