HP and GIA Announce Color Seminar for Digital Sign Makers

Palo Alto, Calif., July 11, 2006 - HP announced today, in cooperation with The GIA, that it will sponsor a seminar 
tour designed to help sign makers and digital print service providers better understand, manage and improve their 
use of color. Other partners on this educational tour include LG Chem, Onyx Graphics, Sign Business Magazine 
and Digital Graphics Magazine. 

Presented in 20 U.S. and Canadian cities this July through October, the Color Management for Digital Sign 
Makers seminar will teach the technical skills needed to get the best possible color from wide format printers. 
Attendees will learn how to maximize their RIP software for color management and workflow efficiency, and 
will get a first look at the new ONYX 7 software and print samples from the new low solvent-based HP 
Designjet 9000s Printer series. During the full day of instruction, attendees will get the jump on their competition 
with the latest ICC profiling tools and color control techniques for professional display graphics. 

"New high durability low-solvent print technologies, uncoated media and RIP software not only give today’s 
commercial printers more business opportunities, they also accentuate the need to more tightly control color 
practices," said Manny Kostas, vice president, Graphic Arts division, HP. 

Attendees can register online at or toll-free at 888.439.4403. The $299 seminar fee 
includes a full day (9am-4pm) of training, lunch and a Digital Color Toolkit, including a full-color presentation 
workbook, GIA's Need to Know: Color manual, Profiling Tip Sheets for several major RIPs, GIA’s Digital Sign 
Making eLearning DVD, reference CD-ROM and sponsor discounts. Attendees who register by July 31st will
