International Print Day 2018 is designed to help celebrate our mutual love of CMYK and help PRINT trend across social media. This year the theme is COLLABORATION!
We are all in this together and when we work together, share ideas and create projects and products together, we are all better for it – and so are the projects and products.
On October 17, 2018, share your collaborative print projects through social media using #IPD18 and #printwith.
Two Sides shares in this love for collaboration by working with our members by providing a forum to help people gain a better understanding of why Print and Paper is a versatile and sustainable communications medium.
