Photos: Digiwrap Had a Blast Presenting at DScoop and How Conventions

Earlier this year, we were honored to be asked to speak at two of the countries top conventions for print and design: DScoop, held in Phoenix, and How Design Live in Chicago. Scoop is an experiential and fast-paced conference for those in the digital printing and graphics industry. How Design Live is one of the largest annual gatherings of creative professionals in the world. At both events, we got to speak about our innovative products, our marketing and creative process, and our recent exciting adventure on ABC’s Shark Tank.

During the DScoop presentation, we showed our ABC Shark Tank clip as well as a personalized message from our favorite Shark, Kevin O’Leary. In his clip, O’Leary said Digiwrap “exemplifies the innovation happening in the printing industry.” Thank you for your kind words, Kevin!

Here are a few photos from our presentation:

We also were fortunate at that event to win an Inkspiration Award for our fully custom gift bag!

At How Design Live, we joined Sabine Lenz, the founder of to talk about hot print designs and trends. At our booth, we welcomed visitors and even vendors to design their own personalized bag on the spot in just minutes. We were able to print and produce our visitors’ creations for pick up during the event! As you can see, visitors took their bags in many different directions and had a lot of fun doing so!

Featured Customer: Artful Jewelry Packaging by Aerial Model Maker PocketJo

We love our custom tissue paper customers, since we know that they agree with us about one essential truth: packaging and presentation are important! Often makers have a vision for how their product could look when it gets into the hands of their customers, and they need custom packaging to bring their vision to life. We love to help makers to retain their special, handmade feel by creating custom tissue paper for their packaging. Digiwrap Customer PocketJo wanted to wrap her beautiful aerial-themed jewelry with love, so she chose a repeat logo pattern for her tissue paper packaging. It turned out great!


After exploring her model-made jewelry site, we fell in love with her story and product. She is “PocketJo” because her model-making course at University had three Jos. To distinguish her from the other Jos, they called her “Pocket Jo” because she’s so small and cute you could put her in your pocket. She makes jewelry based on her other unique love—circus! Learn more about her shop below.

Why did you choose aerial acrobatics as your main subject matter?

It's a beautiful art form, and I couldn't find very many places offering accessories related to it so I thought I could try and create some pieces and see what happened.

How did you get into jewelry and model making?

I have a BA(Hons) in Model Making from UCA. I have enjoyed making things from an early age and had the bonus of having a very creative Grandmother who let me make a mess on her kitchen table.

Why are you passionate about your shop?

It's something I've built myself and I have already learned so much in the short time its been up and running. I hope to keep improving it and make something that can supply people with lovely gifts and special, unique things for themselves.

What inspires you when you are designing something new?

I love contrasting shapes, colors, and textures and try to use more than one material in each design that compliments the other. I also love to capture the energy of motion and movement.

Why is presentation in your packaging important?

I want every purchase to be exciting and to make every customer feel special. I want them to know and to feel that care and attention has gone into each and every order.

Do you have a success tip for other makers?

Make what you enjoy—it will come through in your work and it will never be wasted time.

What do you do for fun?

I have started classes in aerial silks over the last few months which gives me even greater respect for the professionals!
