Live MacBook Pro drawing

Seeing green again…
For this year's HOW Conference, and as part of its commitment to environmental responsibility, Finch has teamed up with conVerd to create a booth display made from conVerd's Enviroboard substrate, a greener alternative to traditional foam core manufactured using Finch paper.  The exhibit is comprised of a standing structure printed on Enviroboard and supported by a wood easel – both materials certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council and can be either reused or recycled – as well as with five sheets of Finch paper, two of which are corrugated. Several die-cut pieces attached to the display create a 3-D effect, and illustrate the ease in customizing shapes when using the product.
A true green feature, the booth is completely recyclable once the event ends. All displays created by conVerd are easy to assemble and are very light to ship, diminishing drayage and labor costs. This more economical solution – leaving less of a carbon footprint – is a sensible alternative to traditional booth displays.

…and again
Designers will have the opportunity to learn about the another green – price savings -- that Finch offers, as well.
