The third Thursday of February, Digital 2 You hosted the “ Color 101, Introduction to Digital Color Printing & Workflow “ an all day seminar in the new learning center. As a series of small group, lecture & hands on seminars, the attendees were given a set of valuable resource materials, discount coupon and a full day of information packed presentation from our team of color management instructors & working professionals that visited the group.
The day started off with a overview of each attendees background in digital printing needs and introduction to the staff at Digital 2 you. The group got a chance to tour the new Digital Technology and Learning Center in Denver getting a chance to see the new Epson P-Series printers and the “ Print Your Legacy” new fine art papers. Everyone was quite excited about all the printing technologies displayed in the center!
