International Print Day 2016

With 18th October being International Print Day, today is like Christmas within all the printers in Belfast. Not only is the localised trade celebrating all that is great with print, but the hashtag #IPD16 is instigating conversations among graphic designers, marketers and printers all around the world.

This annual event which grips the trade each and every year celebrates print in all its formats and the reach it has around the world in both traditional and new media formats. We’ve recently found out that last year, the IPD15 hashtag was used over 27 million times during the International Print Day event and this is an extremely  positive sign for a trade that some say is dying. We however like to say “PRINT IS NOT DEAD, LONG LIVE PRINT”.

We’re super excited to be involved with this years IPD and will be communicating with our partners, customers and peers from the printing trade around the world. In fact if you are reading this and want to tweet out to our partners @samedayprint in Melbourne, I’m sure Tom and the team would be very keen to hear from our Kaizen Print, Belfast customers.

Speaking about International Print Day 2016, our Managing Director Connor McAuley had this to say: “The evolution of Print through the centuries is fascinating and with the advent of digital printing technology, we are experiencing unbelievable breakthroughs in quality, speed and price. It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to be at the forefront of this cutting edge technology and to bring the culminating results to the designers, marketers and entrepreneurs of Belfast.”

“We’re proud to work with printing partners all around the world this #IPD16 to build the awareness and understanding of print.”
