Print Excellence Awards 2020-2021

It's your time to shine!

2020 has been the year of turmoil from COVID-19 to politics. However, we as the printing industry (an essential business in the state of California) continues to survive. 2021 is the year we need to shine! This is why, Printing  Industries  Association,  Inc.  of  Southern  California  is  excited  to  kick  off  the  “Call  for  Entries”  to  our  local  printing  competition,  the Print  Excellence  Awards!  Each  year,  the  competition  awards  the  best  combinations  of  technology  and  craftsmanship  within  Southern  California’s  dynamic  printing,  imaging,  and  finishing community. For the last 17 years, we have recognized thousands of printers and suppliers for their award-winning projects. Past winners have found that winning a Print Excellence Award can be a powerful marketing tool in helping grow their business and boost their employee morale. Which piece will stop the judges in their tracks? Who will be honored as Best of Show? Who will win the “They Said It Couldn’t Be Done” award? Receiving an award in one of the largest, most prestigious graphic communication competitions in the United States tells your customers and prospects that your company produces some of the finest work available in our field. To be a part of this powerful promotional tool for your business, you first have to enter! Choose your top-quality printed samples and start submitting them to the 2020-2021 Print Excellence Awards. We look forward to seeing those award-winning pieces no later than Friday, March 5, 2021.
