It's International Print Day! Here's How You Can Join In
Celebrating its fourth year focusing on print — the original communications delivery device — International Print Day (IPD) gives you a chance to join a worldwide conversation and share your passion for print. Throughout the day today, you can share your work, your favorite print samples and applications or simply share a moment with fellow enthusiasts using the Twitter hashtag #IPD17.
Last year, the IPD hashtag on Twitter generated an impressive 30 million timeline deliveries in just under 24 hours. The push for 2017 is to go bigger.
IPD’s annual theme is born from the community that gathers for a weekly #PrintChat held every Wednesday on Twitter at 4 p.m. ET, and this year it’s ‘#PrintUX’, providing another way for stakeholders to interact.
“Print is an evolving technology with a proud history and a vibrant future,” says Deborah Corn, principal at Print Media Centr and the driving force behind the day. “PrintUX represents 'The Print Experience' as related to print’s role in the world, print’s role in our lives and the industry’s role in providing the tools and technology to manifest imagination through the printing process. We’re expecting to see printers, designers, marketers and entrepreneurs connecting throughout the day sharing samples and stories of great print – plus ideas, suggestions and opportunities to collaborate.
“In 2015 the United States Capitol Building recognized IPD by sharing pictures of their printed admission tickets,” Corn recalls. “In 2016 Good Morning America gave us a shout-out which was incredible considering their massive following. But when the United Nations Library Geneva reached out to share their 2017 event news, I felt that International Print Day was validated as a legitimate global celebration of print. Now the rest is up to us. So, be as inventive as possible and let’s get print and its possibilities trending around the world.”
