Printing Industries of America and the Digital Printing Council are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2009 Web2Awards. In its inaugural year, the Web2Awards are the industry’s first and only contest established for printing industry websites worldwide.
“These awards highlight the role the Internet has come to play in the printing industry. By recognizing excellence in print-related websites, the Digital Printing Council helps to encourage each printer’s advancement in doing some portion of their business in the ecloud,’” said Julie Shaffer, vice president, digital technologies for Printing Industries of America.
An independent panel of undisclosed judges deliberated over dozens of print centric websites. They evaluated the each website’s entire experience based on six scoring criteria. For each company sales range, the highest score in a given category won Best of Category, then Best in Show. Exceptional Website Awards were given to high scores regardless of category.
