Idea-sharing in the global Dscoop community knows no boundaries.

The level of openness and idea-sharing in the global Dscoop community is inspiring! In October 2023, Dscoopers Shivam Hora and Pradeep Hora of Hora Art Centre Pvt. Ltd., flew from India to Ontario, Canada, to meet with fellow Dscoopers at Rootree. The Horas wanted to explore cutting-edge pouch-making technologies, and had learned about Rootree through Dscoop. Meanwhile, their colleague and fellow family member Ramneek Hora flew to Geostick in the Netherlands to learn how the company, which produces self-adhesive labels and flexible packaging products, has consistently maintained a reputation for excellence in the printing and packaging industry.

In their own words, here are their stories of learning and growing:

Rootree Visit: 'I Couldn't Help But Feel a Sense of Awe'

By Shivam Hora, Hora Art Centre

I was thrilled and honored to be a part of an eye-opening journey to Rootree in Ontario, Canada. Together with Mr. Pradeep Hora, we embarked on this adventure to explore the cutting-edge pouch making technologies that Rootree has become famous for.

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm by Mr. Phil St.-Cyr, the visionary CEO of Rootree, and his dedicated team. The air was filled with anticipation as we eagerly looked forward to delving deep into Rootree's advanced printing and packaging technologies.


Rootree's commitment to sustainability and environmentally friendly practices truly impressed us. They showcased their state-of-the-art pouch-making technologies, which have garnered significant recognition within the industry. Witnessing their dedication to producing eco-friendly packaging solutions was truly inspiring.

Throughout our visit, Mr. Phil and his team took the time to explain every aspect of their innovative pouch making process. We were given an in-depth understanding of their HP Indigo 25K Digital Presses. The attention to detail and precision with every step, from printing to laminating, and from cutting to sealing, was truly remarkable.


I couldn't help but feel a sense of awe as I witnessed the seamless integration of technology and craftsmanship at Rootree. The level of expertise and professionalism displayed by the team was second to none. Their dedication to quality and their drive to push the boundaries of what is possible in the printing and packaging industry left a lasting impression on us.

The cross-continental collaboration between Hora Art Centre and Rootree has opened up exciting possibilities for future partnerships. We are eager to implement the knowledge and insights gained from this visit into our own operations in India. The exchange of ideas and expertise between our two companies will undoubtedly lead to further innovation and growth. This visit has not only broadened our horizons, but has also reinforced our commitment to delivering sustainable and high-quality printing and packaging solutions to our clients.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Mr. Phil and the entire team at Rootree for their warm hospitality and to Dscoop for organizing our get-together. If it wasn't for Dscoop, this visit wouldn't have been possible.

As we bid farewell to Rootree, we carry with us a renewed sense of purpose and a determination to push the boundaries of what is possible in our own industry. The journey may have come to an end, but the impact of this collaboration will continue to resonate within Hora Art Centre for years to come!

Geostick Visit: 'Game Changer for Our Company'

By Ramneek Hora, Hora Art Centre

At Hora Art Centre, we’ve always believed in the power of innovation, quality and strong partnerships. These values have been the driving force behind our journey toward excellence in the printing and packaging industry. But sometimes it takes a remarkable experience to redefine the course of our business. That’s exactly what happened recently when we had the privilege of visiting Geostick, and it turned out to be a game changer for our company. The purpose of our visit was simple: to learn more about Geostick's practices, and what we experienced was nothing short of extraordinary.

From the moment we set foot in Geostick’s premises, their commitment to hospitality and professionalism was evident. The organization and attention to detail in their arrangements were impeccable. We were welcomed with open arms, and this warm reception set the tone for what would be an unforgettable visit.



A guided tour of their state-of-the-art plant facilities was not only impressive but also eye-opening. Witnessing the intricacies of their production process and the cutting-edge technology they employ was a revelation. Geostick’s commitment to quality and innovation was palpable in every corner of their operations. Their dedication to excellence, innovation and customer satisfaction shined through in every word and every piece of data they shared. They weren’t just showcasing their products; they were sharing their ethos, their journey, and their unwavering commitment to the customer.

What truly set this visit apart was Geostick’s team. Their expertise and willingness to answer our questions were remarkable. They didn’t just provide answers; they offered valuable insights and perspectives. This interaction reinforced our confidence in the products and services Geostick offers, especially those related to HP.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to the Dscoop team and Geostick for their outstanding hospitality and efforts in making this visit truly remarkable. We now look forward to future collaborations with Dscoop members!
