HP is delighted to take part in creating an enriching learning space where students of Diliman Preparatory School can grow... Leveraging on the eco-friendly benefits of HP Latex technology.

Through former Senator Nikki Coseteng who values-building of young minds starting in the classroom, it became a possiblity.
We would like our students to develop holistically...I want my school to look attractive with very stimulating images and colors. If our kids grow up in that environment, then we will have great architects, engineers and great city planners, but it all starts with growing up with good taste and good sense,” says Coseteng.

With the help of top print service provider Scan Livingston, DPS was able to redesign its playground, hallways and five of its pre-school classrooms in its Early Childhood Center (ECE).

Scan Livingston used robust HP Large-format printers including the HP Scitex LX600, HP Designjet L65500 and the HP Designjet L25500. Equipped with the environmentally-friendly HP Latex technology, the HP Designjet and Scitex printers produce large-format prints that are odorless do not give off hazardous air pollutants unlike other printing solutions in the market. The HP Designjet and Scitex printers were the ideal solutions that could create an environment where kids can play and learn freely.

Here are photos of the colorful classrooms whose walls and furniture are printed on:

They also offer the versatility of printing over different media including HP recyclable PVC-free wallpapers, vinyl stickers and fabrics.

I like the fact that it only took a day to install the printed media. And because the prints were odorless, we did not have to keep the windows open or wait for a week to be able to use the classrooms, and for me this adds a lot of value,” added Coseteng.
