Dscoop Celebrates 10 Years at DscoopX

“We started Dscoop to provide the Industry with a positive platform that could create partnerships, new opportunities, and build relationships. Never, would I have imagined this organization to grow into what it is today.” Jack Glacken, President of TGI.Dscoopx

Dscoop, a community of HP users, is holding their Tenth Annual Conference, Dscoop X, March 5-7, 2015 in Washington, DC. The annual conference is one of the most important gatherings, where Dscoop members build partnerships, alliances and relationships that impact their business for years to come.

TGI President, Jack Glacken, was one of the founders and First Chairman of Dscoop. It started in 2005 with 250 members, and has grown to over 7,000 members worldwide with chapters in Asia Pacific and EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).

Dscoop (Digital Solutions Cooperative) is a worldwide community of visionaries from leading graphic arts companies and industry partners who collaborate by sharing ideas and information that drive industry-leading innovation and individual business growth through the use of HP digital print technologies. Dscoop is all about community: interacting with peers, exchanging experiences, sharing and learning best practices.

Jack Glacken, on why Dscoop was started, and how it has grown:

“Although HP had acquired Indigo and their amazing digital print technology near the end of 2001, there was a glaring need for an organization that connected HP, HP Graphic Arts Users and HP Partners. An organization that could provide a positive platform, where all parties concerned, could together brainstorm to create new opportunities in this fast growing sector of the industry.”

“ Ten years ago we had about 300 members at our first conference, we are now 7,000 members strong, Internationally. Dscoop membership now supports HP Graphic Arts users throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific and Japan. More importantly, the cooperation I’ve witnessed between Dscoop members, even in the same marketplace, helping each other grow and tackle challenges, is remarkable. That’s why we started Dscoop, that’s what Dscoop is all about and I could not be more proud.”

Congratulations to Dscoop on 10 successful years! We are looking forward to seeing what this awesome organization has in store for the future, and are looking forward to celebrating 10 years at Dscoop X!

Move Over Generic Décor, Digital is Taking Over

Interior designers, for commercial and residential spaces, are turning to customized Digital Décor to add awesome impact to their design plans. It’s no secret that digital Décor is on the rise, for both residential and commercial design, and for good reason. Due to advances in technology, it is now affordable to customize materials as varied as wall paper and wall graphics for enterprises, businesses of all sizes, and even residential use.

Residential

Interior designers are flocking towards digital décor because of its endless possibilities in customization. In lieu of your standard wallpaper, they are turning to customized wall coverings, wall decals and printed canvases to add a personal touch to their client’s homes. Using alternative materials for wall coverings, they are getting rid of the wallpaper mess, and creating customized digital printed wall coverings that are mess free. Web to print digital décor for residential use is also on the rise, so anyone desiring a new appearance for their home, can create endless personalized décor. Personalized galleries using family photos, wall coverings made from a collage of favorite photos, and wall decals from customized artwork, these are all things that everyone is excited about.

Commercial

Restaurants, corporate offices, retail spaces, hotels, hospitals and health care facilities are turning to digital décor to make a big impact in their design. Why are they using Digital Décor now? Because their branding, marketing and messaging can be carried out throughout their entire space, they are making great use of the marketing real estate in their facilities, and making an impact on consumers.

Customized Wall Coverings

Digital Printing Technology allows for companies to design and customize their own wall coverings, making a standard wall covering or paint, seem so blah. Whether for creating an aesthetically pleasing space of a hotel lobby, to creating atmosphere in a restaurant or to carry out branding design elements in corporate offices, companies love the impact that wall coverings have on their customers. The ability to create murals or wall coverings using designs that they produced, are more intriguing than ever before.

Customized Artwork

Companies are able to design their own works of art to hang on the walls of their businesses. Using photographs of their own, or artwork created just for their space, they can create customized photo galleries, or canvas prints to carry out their look throughout their businesses.

More Digital Capabilities

Businesses and commercial interior designers are going beyond wall coverings and photo galleries, because of updated technology, they can now cover everything, floor to ceiling with their own customized designs. Companies are thinking smart in which real estate of their businesses to carry out their marketing. Textile printing capabilities can completely transform restaurants décor from throw pillows, curtains, tablecloths and napkins and even furniture, allowing for their space to be their own. Ceiling coverings, vinyl decals, floor coverings, lampshades, tabletops and even menus can all be created by using Digital Printing Technology.
