Press release from the issuing company
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--April 3, 2002--Brightcube, Inc. was honored by the Digital Printing and Imaging Association (DPI) with the 2002 Andre Shellenberg Award for Best Ink Jet Print. Brightcube's triumph adds to the company's impressive record of capturing industry awards for its digital imaging products and services.
The winning entry, entitled "Rush Hour/ NY", was captured by Brightcube's Anders Jonsson on a Canon Power Shot G1 and enhanced with Adobe PhotoShop, then printed on Brightcube Eclipse Satine Soft White paper using an Epson 10000 wide format printer.
Jonsson credits Brightcube Eclipse Satine for "its extraordinary color depth, detail, and tonality, especially with the latest Epson pigmented inks." The paper, which has only been on the market for a short time, is a double-sided acid-free paper with multiple receiving layers and an elegant texture that appeals to fine artists and photographers.
Brightcube Chief Executive Officer, Al Marco, who selected Jonsson's image for submission, said, "the fact that we won this award over close to forty other competitors highlights the fact that our coated papers are some of the best on the market, marking the third year in a row that we have won such an award. Professionals, such as artists or photographers, can produce incredible results that were impossible just a few years ago. We pride ourselves on developing cutting edge products so that OEMs, distributors and retailers can provide professionals the finest products on the market."

The Brightcube Solution is a first of its kind print-on-demand system for the art market that allows users to print artwork from a large online image bank with minimal user expertise.
