Essex Printing Wins Eight Awards in New England Regional Printing Awards of Excellence Competition
The Print Industry of New England (PINE) has announced that Essex Printing received eight awards in PINE’s New England Regional Awards of Excellence competition. The announcement was made with hundreds of industry professionals in attendance at PINE’s Industry Awards Gala, held at the Boston Marriott Burlington in Burlington, MA on April 11. With these new awards, Essex Printing has won a total of 28 print awards over the past 7 years - including an International Benny Award (the “Oscar” of the print industry) in 2014.
“We are so pleased to have won so many awards this year. It is a testament to the dedication of our staff and the commitment we make to our customers,” said Essex Printing’s President, William McMinn. “It shows not only our dedication to quality but also our versatility,” added McMinn. “Over the years, we have received awards for a variety of printed materials – from marketing pieces to books, from brochures to calendars. It’s a great feeling when you have affirmation that you are providing your clients with print materials that they can feel very proud of.”
PINE’s Awards of Excellence Competition attracted over 300 entries from over 35 printing and imaging companies across New England competing in a variety of printing and graphic communications categories. A panel of judges with extensive experience in printing and print production examined the wide range of work submitted. Each entry was judged anonymously on its own merit in a category with similar printed pieces. The judging criteria included: registration, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonalities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, overall visual impact and bindery.
