Difficult times often bring out the best in people and that was certainly the case with the 2011 Print Excellence Awards entries. The quality of the entries made judging more difficult than ever, but our highly experienced and professional panel was great,” said Association president Jim Cunningham.  “Winning a Print Excellence Award is the mark of true craftsmanship by leaders in our industry.”

 “We are especially proud of our award for Environmentally Sound Materials. We strive to be an environmentally responsible printer not because we have to but because we want to be.” said Chuck Gherman, General Manager.
