BURBANK, California – Scodix, the world’s leading provider of digital enhancement solutions for the graphic arts industry, will conduct an open house on Wednesday, November 15th at the production facility of Printograph, Inc (DBA GotPrint.com, Inc) in Burbank. The open house will introduce local print providers, designers, packaging and converting providers and graphic communications professionals from all industries to learn about the marketing and promotional value of digital enhancement.
Erina Sookiasian, Website Product Manager, GotPrint, notes, “We trusted the Scodix press to UV coat the entire cover of the BPL [the winning entry in the 2017 Benny Award], to showcase the capabilities of our new system. It allowed us to really flaunt our design concept and creativity. In the end, we were so pleased that we distributed over 100,000 of our catalogs to those in the print industry.”
At the event, the award-winning Scodix Ultra Foil will be demonstrated running live. Attendees will see for themselves the press’ versatility, which traditionally includes enhancement of business cards, yearbooks, direct mail, presentation folders, greeting cards, and calendars, among other popular print materials. In addition to informative demonstrations, guests will also have the opportunity to meet both Scodix and GotPrint.com’s senior management to learn how digital enhancement is impacting users locally and in every developed country in the world, as well as changing the way designers can easily incorporate impacting finishes, foil and varnishes into their projects.
For print service providers, digital enhancement offers a substantial revenue stream. According to InfoTrends’ research, print buyers are willing to pay premiums in the range of 24% to 89% for digital print enhancements over CMYK-only work. And, this value is expected to experience a compounded annual growth rate of 14%. Scodix introduced the first digital enhancement press prototype to the world in 2009 and has been the category leader since. To register for the event, email: [email protected].
