PRINTING United Alliance, the most comprehensive member-based printing and graphic arts association in the U.S., announces that this year’s Premier PRINT Awards competition has officially opened.
Launched last year as a more streamlined program to showcase the best in print communications, the competition comprises the former SGIA Golden Image Award, Printing Impressions Gold Ink Award, Packaging Impressions Excellence Award, and Printing Industries of America “Benny” Award. Entries exemplify excellence in quality, creativity, and innovation across the printing industry.
This all-encompassing program highlights printing technology across market segments. Students are encouraged to participate, and entries are free for any PRINTING United Alliance educational institution member.
Highly qualified judges are selected by PRINTING United Alliance based on their respective experience, technical skills, and expertise in the industry.
The winners of each category will be automatically entered into their respective Best of Category Award, with those winners ultimately assessed for the Printed Product of the Year Award.
In addition to announcing and celebrating winners at PRINTING United Expo and highlighting them on the official online showcase, winners will be featured in a special awards booklet, which will be distributed with the September issue of the PRINTING United Journal.
Newly appointed PRINTING United Alliance program manager and industry veteran Dawn Nye says, “Winning a Premier PRINT Award helps businesses solidify their reputation as a trustworthy brand that delivers. Additional benefits of becoming an award-winning business are improving employee morale and increasing visibility.
“Join me in the Premier PRINT Awards booth in October to vote for the People’s Choice Award from the winners of the Best of Categories, being presented at the end of the second day of PRINTING United Expo in Las Vegas. I am especially excited to see the lineup of OEM competitors in our newest Best in Print category.”
