Adobe’s New Update to Design to Print Creates Business Opportunities for Every Designer
Join us as Adobe’s Mike Scrutton updates us on version 1.2 of Adobe’s Design to Print Photoshop plug-in. This extension provides designers and creatives with the unique opportunity to create a variety of products, ranging from cards, mugs, socks, tote bags, and more. Creative Photoshop users are able to see their designs on the products prior to making them. When the design is ready, a simple click pushed their final work from Photoshop to Zazzle.com, where the general public can purchase the design, and customize those new products. Artists, designers, craft enthusiasts, and startups can explore, text markets, create and sell their designs.

I read a lot of packaging trend reports and commentary. One thing is clear – many different packaging trends are happening at the moment – it all depends on what market and industry you find you find yourself.
I come from a printing background, developed over time after graduation, where I was skilled in both design and PostScript — the language that produced digital designs on printers. It was the ’90s, where digital printing was in its infancy.
