Hemlock’s award-winning project was printed on an HP Indigo 7900 with 66 variable SKUs, running 100# McCoy Silk Cover + 100# McCoy Silk Text and Indigo ElectroInk Invisible Red.

For the past three years, HP and Dscoop have partnered to run a printing contest called the HP Inkspiration Americas Awards to celebrate excellence in design and print using HP Indigo, PageWide web press or Scitex technologies.

In March 2018, 16 awards were presented to 13 customers and designers in multiple categories across General Commercial Printing, Labels and Packaging categories. Nearly 200 entries from more than 75 HP customers and designers were submitted to the competition.

The award winners were announced at Dscoop Dallas in March to recognize the most innovative brand experience produced with HP printing technology. Hemlock Printers of Burnaby, B.C., received an award for the use of personalization with invisible ink on notebooks produced for a youth conference.

Leveraging an HP Indigo 7900 press with personalization and Indigo ElectroInk Invisible Red, Hemlock printed 100 notebooks for Glass Canvas Media. The client explains the students scoured the notebooks personalized with their names, pouring over every page with UV flashlights looking for hidden messages and images, and sharing with their peers. The notebooks won the HP 2018 Inkspiration award for General Commercial Printing collateral.
