The Digital Embellishment Alliance (DEA) – a newly formed subgroup of the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) – has announced the launch of its “members only” website community to provide a comprehensive resource surrounding the growing digital embellishment segment of the printing industry.
The new website community includes a Forum for members to ask technical questions as they pertain to digital embellishments and share experiences with project challenges and successes. In addition, the community includes a section that allows members to become a part of specific DEA groups. For instance, members can choose between an Owner/Management group, an Operator’s group or a Design with Digital Embellishment group. As the community grows, “Meet Ups” will be scheduled for each group via Microsoft® Teams, where experiences with digital embellishments can be shared. In addition, the site will include a Resource area for studies commissioned by FSEA on the impact of print embellishments and a recent study on the sustainability of foil decorated paper/board.
“The use of digital embellishments continues to grow but still is very new to many who are designing for digital embellishments on print or operating the equipment,” stated FSEA Executive Director Jeff Peterson. “Our hope is that the formation of the DEA and the website community will help create an educational platform for all of those involved or looking to become involved with the processes.”
