Green Advantage

You'd like to believe that in today’s digital world we don’t print anymore. The truth is very different. Digital printing grew from $80B in 2008 to $180BN in 2018. Today, tons of print materials are shipped around the world from central depots. Gelato is disrupting this model by providing the world with a cloud based service where you can print and distribute locally.
