• Duplo festival hailed ‘a print revolution’

        •  

          Duplo is looking back on its first successful festival that has been well received by the industry as ‘awesome’ and ‘a print revolution’, in an event that saw 350 people gather over the two days.

          Pledging to make next year even bigger and better, organisers of ‘Celebration of Creativity in Print’ turned Duplo’s Surrey-based head office and warehouse into a festival field, with a stage, comedy tent, bar and festival-style food concessions. Duplo’s print finishing systems were also decked out in festival colours.

          Homegrown talent from the print industry took to the stage, complimenting Duplo’s print finishing systems that starred Duplo’s DuSense, a sensory coater that is designed for embellishing short-run digital print and was officially launched at the festival. 

          In the weeks preceding the event, MD Peter Jolly ran 172 kilometres, the distance from Duplo HQ to Glastonbury, to raise money for Addlestone-based Shooting Star Chase, a children’s hospice charity. He is set to hit his four-figure charity sum. You can still donate via this link

          Peter said, “my vision to create a uniquely different event for our industry went even better than even we expected. We were blessed by perfect weather too for this perfect opportunity to celebrate print in the sun while enjoying music from some of the industry’s best talent. And doing real business was the icing on the cake.

          “Typical comments we got back were along the lines of, ‘amazing event with a surreal atmosphere’, ‘thoroughly creative day’ and a ‘really great gig’.”

          Business during the event saw Andy Bird, Bristol MD of Folio Print Finishing, take a liking to the Duplo 600i Booklet System, signing on the day for a Twin Tower model to complement existing equipment.

          Andy said, “I was blown away by the quality and the speed. We’ve been looking for additional options and this helps meet the changing demands of customer requirements. I’m delighted to be going for the Duplo 600i Booklet System rather than heavy duty traditional finishing kit. This will really help us.”
