At this year’s Dscoop EMEA event, HP and Dscoop celebrated excellence in design and print achieved using HP Indigo, PageWide Web Press or Scitex technology.
PSPs were invited to send their best work to a regional competition, which was judged by a local jury. A total of 16 awards were presented to 13 customers and designers in multiple categories across general commercial printing and labels and packaging. Nearly 200 entries from more than 75 customers and designers were submitted to the Inkspiration competition overall.
In the UK, the regional winners included Harkwell Labels for the Bude Brewery labels printed on an HP WS6800 on a silver substrate, Foxpak Flexibles for the Bake It Easy cookie mix pouches printed on an HP Indigo 20000 and Kalas Packaging for the Vanilla Reindeer personalised gift bags and cartons produced on the HP Indigo 30000.
Eticod in Poland won the overall EMEA Labels category for its OX Ris Labels on Wood campaign. The labels were printed on Fasson cherry wood on an HP Indigo 6600 to complement the oak-infused beer. The varied structure of the substrate made each of the 1500 labels unique in appearance.  
Dars 91 from Bulgaria picked up the folding carton award for its use of natural cork lamination for Gekko alcohol boxes, while the flexible packaging winner was Uni Packaging (France) for the Kopo Vegesens pouches.
