What the Judges Said 

The title of this piece is very appropriate!

When I first viewed this piece, I was anxious to pick it up and examine it.

  • Hang over on the front cover is an intricate clean die-cut which must have been very challenging to the Bindery Operation. In the die are tight-after-tight small spaces. They are all No nicks! Everything had to be perfect, sharp of the edges of the blades, the right pressure, etc.
  • Various substrates required.
  • Great folding, no cracks on folds. Glue, where required, was clean and neat.

Printer, obviously, with careful attention, knew where to utilize different screens to apply to obtain beautiful pics.

I have had the privilege to judge more than 150 printing competitions through the years and this piece is right at the top – one of the best I have ever seen.

This, indeed, is one of the most beautiful, well designed, printing and finished pieces I have ever seen. Indeed, this is “Blooming Color – Printing in Bloom”

What the Judges Said – The recipient of this classy ebony package is being treated to a visual banquet. Beginning with the intriguing little black box, each layered component is a feast beginning with some specialty appetizers and cocktails of color. After several packaged layers, the countdown is ever leading to the main course. This effective presentation is a brilliant tribute to the new Porsche Macan. It is certainly the next best thing to the driving experience.  What a virtual expression.

What the Judges Said – It’s not often that we discover a print creation that should remain on the desk for easy reference. Whatever the message or market, the solution is inside. Paper offers a cool appeal to engage and enchant the senses, and provide some fantasy for the print romantic. This Neenah Paper promotion is a charming tactile reminder that your ideas can be merged with beautiful substrates. This creation should be mandatory for any member of the graphic arts community.

What the Judges Said – We were impressed that each continuous picture and page was crafted beautifully. Color reps were extremely detailed. In multiple pages, the black solids were very smooth and clean, and the laying of the ink was well done. All inserts were neatly attached. The Magazine had numerous spreads which required that the crossovers to be perfect so that the viewer wouldn’t even think about a break.  And they were. What great binding! The consistency of quality was in each issue. A superb combination of pre-press, presswork and binding.
