In this free PaperSpecs webinar sponsored by Neenah Paper, Tom Ingalls, founder of Ingalls Design, reveals his personal tips and insight for designing and printing on digital presses. Feature: the stunning, digitally printed promotion he created using gold ink.

Palo Alto, California – June 15, 2014 –  “It seems impossible to think there was a time when digital printing wasn’t in a designer’s toolbox,” says Sabine Lenz, founder of PaperSpecs and host of the free webinar – Designers Going for the Digital Gold [Ink]. “Now, designers are scrambling just to keep up with all the new digital printing options that seem to pop up daily.”

To provide creative inspiration and practical tips on using the latest innovation – gold ink for digital presses – Lenz asked Tom Ingalls, founder of Ingalls Design in San Francisco, to share his decade-long experience in the transformation of digital printing and examples of his latest work.

“Papers have been developed especially for digital printing that provide the color and texture we just couldn’t give up,” says Ingalls, “but new presses and inks have also come along that give designers an amazing palette of design possibilities.”

Guest Speakers
Tom Ingalls was named a Fellow by AIGA San Francisco in 2008. From his time with Rolling Stone magazine to the founding of his own studio, Ingalls is one of the most gifted designers working in the medium of digital print today.

“Tom didn’t just experienced the transition from offset to digital printing technologies first hand, he embraced it,” says Lenz. “As a result, he has a unique perspective and knowledge base about digital printing and how designers can make the most of the technique to provide clients with creative solutions.”
