On April 2, the Printing Industry of the Carolinas (PICA; Charlotte, NC) announced Heritage Printing, Signs & Displays (also of Charlotte) as an award winner in the 2021 PICA Awards Competition.
Heritage won 18 Best of Category Awards, four Special Judges Awards and one Award of Excellence. The company was also bestowed with the President’s Our Story Award, which recognizes their most challenging or favorite job of the year.
The announcement came during the 2021 PICA Awards Banquet held in both the company and the association’s hometown. This was the 56th PICA Awards competition; it is one of the largest printing contests in the nation.
This year, the PICA Awards garnered more than 400 submissions from 32 companies, with around 150 entries from six graphic arts high schools and as many college graphic arts programs from across the Carolinas region.
A judging panel of printing and print production experts examined each entry in a category with similar printed pieces. Judging criteria included registration, crossovers, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonal qualities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, finishing, bindery and overall visual impact.
