“HP digital printing technology is disrupting print applications across industries, sparking creative ideas for designers and brands and improving efficiencies,” said Dave Prezzano, General Manager, HP Graphics Solutions Business Americas, HP inc. “These award-winning prints are an inspiration to the HP Graphic Arts community. With leading edge technology from HP Indigo, PSP can capture the growing power of digital print in almost every area of life and work and realize new revenue opportunities.”

At Dscoop Unleashing Print - Dallas, 16 awards were presented to 13 customers and designers in multiple categories across General Commercial Printing and Labels and Packaging for unique and powerful applications. Nearly 200 entries from more than 75 HP customers and designers were submitted to the competition of works produced on HP Indigo, PageWide Web Press, and Scitex print technology.

“Digital printing, digital data and the creative process are coming together more rapidly than ever,” said Dana Arnett, an Inkspiration judge and Founding Partner at VSA Partners. “I was impressed by how the submissions took advantage of the technology and pulled off things that could not be done with conventional printing.
