What’s New at Dscoop

I admit it…..I love the smells and sounds of a conventional offset pressroom. I know it's weird but what can I say? Printing is in my blood.

As of yesterday, Graph Expo 2016 is officially up and running. The hum of equipment such as digital printing, inkjet printing, packaging, wide format (to name a few), was in full effect today in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. Orlando is a nice change of scenery from Chicago, IL and so far, it appears that the location change hasn’t impacted attendance. ...
