In a bold move to turn trash into art, HP is introducing HP Recycled Satin Canvas, a new printable canvas made from 100% recycled water bottles. And given that between five and 13 million tons of plastic is being dumped in our oceans every year, and that 91% of plastic waste isn’t recycled, it’s not a moment too soon! HP believes that we all have the power to make a difference through our everyday actions and choices – but we need to act now.

A few months ago, we came up with a bold idea – we would hold our own Sign Show in the recently-opened Perfect Colours Innovation Centre in Sheffield. It was a new departure for us, very much a step into the unknown! We planned carefully and spread the word. Fast forward to last week and our vision materialised – from Monday to Thursday, we opened our doors. The showroom was packed and over the course of four days we did more than 40 demonstrations on a wide variety of printers, showing how workflow automation could benefit new and existing customers alike.

In this blog, we take a look back over colour printing history, how this medium has evolved and developed over time and explore how we’ve got to the sophistication and impressive quality we see today.
