Dscoop Announces University and Print Directory
Dscoop is partnering with the HP Graphics Solutions Business to develop and deliver this program.
“Print service providers pride themselves on delivering innovative, digitally printed products and are always looking to diversify their services,” explains Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Inkjet & Graphics Solutions, HP. “By collaborating with Dscoop to empower our customers with a wealth of knowledge, we plan to deliver the industry’s leading, community-driven educational resource.”
Dscoop Print Directory
To further spur incremental business activity and growth, the Dscoop Print Directory will be launched as a Web-based tool for brand owners and designers. This tool is designed to provide users with a quick way to research and connect with digital print service providers. The Directory will provide more than just contact information; it will also offer qualitative information about each participating print service provider’s capabilities. Any brand owner or designer can now efficiently source services according to their specific requirements.
The Dscoop Print Directory will be publicly viewable by any site visitor. Visitors will be able to search or browse according to print service provider name, location, print technology or capability, and other selection criteria.
“The Dscoop Print Directory is going to bridge the gap between digital print professionals worldwide,” relays Gary Peeling, managing director, Precision Printing Co Ltd. “It’s a great way for brand managers to utilize the wide-range of print marketing resources available and it will allow Dscoop members to showcase their unique and ever-evolving capabilities of digital printing to connect and share their services. The Dscoop Print Directory will launch in the spring and will be translated into nine different languages. Dscoop members are now able to access the directory and populate their information prior to launch.
Founded in 2005, the Digital Solutions Cooperative (Dscoop) is an independent global community of graphic arts business owners and technical professionals who use HP equipment and related solutions, including HP Indigo and HP Scitex printers and presses. Dscoop is focused on educating and connecting its members with each other and with HP to improve members’ business growth, efficiency and profitability.
