2021 Graphics Excellence Awards Top Winners

2021 GRAPHICS EXCELLENCE AWARDS BEST OF SHOW

Fey Printing

Sponsored by:

What the Judges Said – This Best of Show is a prime example of whimsical lithography. As if Alice in Wonderland collided with Mother Nature at Elon Musk’s house. Paper textures are dynamic, a smorgasbord of linen, pinstripe and serious solids. The visionary portion is the ultimate tease of a stylish back perforated holder concealing the best bindery in the show. They used wizards in the bindery.

What the Judges Said – This winner is the only edible entry in this print competition. If you love gingerbread, you can eat the month of December. Also, a hint of vanilla will please most gastronomes. The non-edible spreads are a combination of print virtuosos, all in tune. Wonderful print orchestration. This calendar is a handbook for print imagination. No ink was spared.

2021 GRAPHICS EXCELLENCE AWARDS
BEST OF WISCONSIN

Philipp Lithographing Co.

What the Judges Said – If the point of purchase at the store or market won’t permit the full display, it’s a travesty. This entry is the O.K. Corral of print, die cutting and mounting. We can only hope the Mountain Dew tastes as good as this creation looks. Fabulous imagination used for the intricacy of the die cutting.

2021 GRAPHICS EXCELLENCE AWARDS
BEST OF PACKAGING

Quantum Group

What the Judges Said – The eye-catching graphics of the carton container are just the beginning of the adventure that is hidden inside. Behind the styrofoam that functions as a bodyguard is a die cut, pop-up that salutes the state of cheese. In a competition stocked with cartons and containers, this entry is truly cheese whiz.
