Why Digital Stationery Consortium?
Ink is the essential tool of human creativity. Ink has evolved from cave paintings to digital ink today for everyone who wants to capture, shape and share their ideas freely and still plays a major part in our day-to-day lives. Stationery products are used for notes, shopping lists, doodles, signing contracts, designs, sketches, love messages, graffiti and much more. And, even though design and illustration went digital many years ago, most ideas still start off with analog ink, pen and paper.
For decades, digital stationery solutions have been developed to serve specific use cases, nowadays industry leaders start to build on digital pen and ink more and more in order to open them to everybody in the world. Furthermore, digitalization, cloud services, IoT and e-signature are massive drivers to increase the need for digital ink that can be created and shared easily.
