Dscoop Wins Silver Award in Gold Ink Awards Competition
CHICAGO—August 26, 2013—Digital Solutions Cooperative (Dscoop) took home Silver for its Dscoop8 conference guide in the annual Gold Ink Awards, presented by Printing Impressions magazine. The organization received a Silver award in the Event Programs category.
The conference guide, designed by Cipher Creative Group, a design and marketing communications firm located in Berlin, CT, was given to attendees at the Dscoop8 Annual Conference in February 2013. The guide served as a resource for conference-goers, providing comprehensive event information. It included variable data on the cover, as well as raised ink. The guide was printed on an HP Indigo by Atlanta-based Bennett Graphics, a Dscoop member. Digital substrate provider GPA donated the stock for the program.
This year’s Gold Ink Award winners were chosen from more than 1,000 entries submitted within 46 categories. Winning pieces were chosen based on print quality, technical difficulty and overall visual effect.
