Printable Technologies (San Diego, CA), an online service provider for the graphic arts industry, has acquired the Web community and forums.’s 18 discussion forums--or eCommunities--are used by industry professionals to share technical and product information, tips and techniques, business practices and industry trends.

There will be no membership or subscription fees for use of the eCommunities. Printable says it will take a "hands-off approach," except in providing financial support and technical resources to operate the site and forums.

Dave Mainwairing, who created the first forum on, joins Printable as managing director of PrintPlanet eCommunities. Printable plans to partner with other news organizations to add content to the site and add more features and functions.
