Co-authors of Introduction to Graphic Communication, John Parsons and Harvey Levenson, exhibited customized versions of Clickable Paper training books at PRINTING United.

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Washington — Stemming from its 2018 book, Introduction to Graphic Communication, IntuIdeas launched its customized versions at PRINTING United in Dallas.

AlphaGraphics became the first user of this product, taking versions of the original 2018 book that applied to AlphaGrapics’ specific training needs for its own stores and franchises across the nation. These printed books that provide multimedia interactivity via Ricoh’s Clickable Paper app are being further personalized with AlphaGrapics own branding and logo.

Also shown and demonstrated at IntuIdeas PRINTING United booth were Clickable Paper’s uses across disciplines and fields. A second book, The Sound of Bamboo, used Ricoh’s Clickable Paper app for over 400 images.

Using the traditional Japanese shakuhachi flute as an example, the book shows how Clickable Paper can be used across the music industry to demonstrate playing techniques, instrument making and famous musicians at work. Examples of Clickable Paper applications were also discussed and demonstrated for the long-term health care industry showing patient care techniques, family communication, legal requirements and more.
