INNOMARK Communications is proud to announce that it was recently awarded nine 2017 Print Excellence Awards from the Printing Industries of Ohio · N. Kentucky.
Each year, Printing Industries of Ohio · N. Kentucky holds its Print Excellence Awards Competition to recognize Ohio and Northern Kentucky printers who have demonstrated excellence in 35 categories. This year, member companies submitted close to 400 printed pieces and two out-of-state expert judges ranked them in a regional competition. This year’s judges were Ken Eberhart, Merrick Printing Company (Louisville, KY); and Jeff Ekstein, Willow Printing Group (Ontario, Canada).
Printing Industries Association President, Jim Cunningham stated how impressed this year’s judges were with the overall quality of all of the entries. “Ken and Jeff are experienced judges and printers whose combined expertise spans more than 50 years in print. Yet, even they were impressed with our members’ incredible work. It’s easy in today’s fast paced world to just get the job done, but our Association members continue to demonstrate the pride and dedication to their craft that has made Ohio and Northern Kentucky printers some of the best in the world!”
Each of the Gold Award winners in the regional competition are entered into an association-wide competition for Best of Category and Best of Show prizes that will be awarded in September at the 2017 Grand Ceremony in Columbus, Ohio.
