In a dazzling triumph at the recent Digital Printer Awards on November 22, Emmerson Press got the Inkjet In Commercial Print award with their extraordinary “Another Lost Summer” photobook.

“The product eliminates waste while also ensuring flat and smooth tints, and high-quality output in production,”
judges at Digital Printer Awards.
“We’re thrilled to receive recognition for our work as a commercial printer. The “Another Lost Summer” photobook demonstrates the outstanding quality that the Jet Press 750S is capable of printing,”
Jamie Emmerson, Director of Emmerson Press.
Emmerson Press is a family-run printing company based in the UK, with trusted expertise in commercial printing. The company have always been at the very forefront of technological advancements, investing in the latest innovative equipment with an enviable courage. In 2016, they made history as the first company in the UK to install a Jet Press 720S, which they subsequently upgraded to the new Jet Press 750S.
“In September, the first month of operations, we ran 40% more sheets, which is a testament to the increased speed and productivity,”
Both machines empowered Emmerson Press to consistently produce high-quality photobooks which have already gained recognition at various prestigious events. For instance, in 2019, the company produced a high quality hardcover book to accompany the “Roses” photo project made by famous British fashion photographer Nick Knight, who also created advertising campaigns for Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Calvin Klein. All the pictures were printed on the Jet Press 720S, making use of its exceptional print quality and extensive colour functionality. One more famous project rose up in 2020-2021, when Emmerson Press supported the launch of the luxury magazine Soul Kind, printed on the Jet Press 750S. The new machine allowed them to benefit from getting ultrahigh quality for the short-run creative content.
This year marked another milestone for Emmerson Press as they became the first company in the UK to invest in our Apeos Pro C810 toner press, reaffirming their commitment to staying ahead in the commercial printing industry.
Notably, company’s success at the Digital Printer Awards 2023 made their debut at the competition and also gave a great platform to showcase their fascinating work. Our partnership is a story of sharing challenges and success, providing continuous support whenever its needed. We are proud to be their partners and are looking forward to new achievements!

In a saturated market, standing out is a necessity. Your brand needs that “glow-in-the-dark sneakers” – a distinctive element that makes people go “ah, that’s the one!” You have to turn a casual passer-by into a loyal fan, and it’s not about being louder – it’s about creating lasting memories.

Remember how you used to sit on a sofa with your grandma, looking through those old family polaroids, putting them on your knees, one by one. There was something that made her hands tenderly hold the picture a little bit longer. Something making her breath rhythm changed. It was not a photograph but a story, a raw moment of presence, a memory that could never be repeated. And then you got it in your hands, with this unexplainable feeling of touching a true treasure. It felt like magic, didn’t it?
And now look, that’s you holding the instant photo taken with your best friend in a crowded street last week. Both showered by rain, shining with joy, with a coffee in your hand and sincere laugh being the only sources of warmth that day. And now you’re fingering this feeling caught in a photo and smiling. And getting warmer.

In a transformative move that underscores its commitment to becoming a leading force in the semiconductor materials manufacturing industry, FUJIFILM Corporation has successfully completed the acquisition of the electronic chemicals business previously owned by Entegris, Inc. This acquisition, which amounted to $700 million, not only fortifies Fujifilm’s position but also reinforces its dedication to innovation and excellence in the realm of electronic materials. This transformative development is a significant step in their journey towards achieving a revised sales target of JPY 500 billion by 2030.
The acquired business, formerly known as CMC Materials KMG Corporation, is now rebranded as FUJIFILM Electronic Materials Process Chemicals. With this strategic acquisition, Fujifilm has broadened its product portfolio in electronic chemicals. The new addition includes a comprehensive product line-up and twelve additional sites across the United States, Europe, and Singapore, marking Fujifilm’s first electronic materials manufacturing site in Southeast Asia. This expansion brings Fujifilm’s total electronic materials manufacturing footprint to 18 strategically located sites, ensuring enhanced supply chain resilience for the semiconductor industry.
Diversified Product Offerings
One of the standout advantages of this acquisition is the ability to offer a more comprehensive range of electronic chemicals to customers. This includes the inclusion of the High Purity Process Chemicals (HPPCs) product line, a vital component in the semiconductor manufacturing process, primarily used for etching and cleaning silicon wafers. This addition complements Fujifilm’s existing products in formulated products and high purity solvents. Furthermore, this strategic move also incorporates the Total Chemical Management business, which encompasses on-site and off-site logistics services provided to customers in Southeast Asia and Europe.

Only 24 days let until it is Christmastime again! Today, we show you how you can quickly create a unique Christmas decoration with your favorite photos.
For this you will need:
Mini Christmas decoration
1 floating candle
Your favorite Christmas photo
Transparent tape if needed
First, put the water beads in a bowl with water and let them swell overnight.
The next day you can print out your Christmas motive with your INSTAX-Square Smartphone Printer like here, or you shoot a new one with your INSTAX camera. If you want to protect it from water, you can try wrapping it in clear tape.
Now take your jar and alternate filling it with a little of the decoration and the water beads. In the middle you put the INSTAX instant picture. When the glass is almost full, fill it up with water – and all at once the water pearls disappear!
Now your INSTAX photo floats in the middle of your great Christmas decoration! You can round off your DIY now, in which you put a floating candle in your glass, so you have conjured up a double eye-catcher.
A few tips: it’s best not to use real candy canes, because they dissolve quickly. Please note that it is possible that the INSTAX instant picture may change if it is in the water for a longer time.
